American Express OptBlue

The OptBlue® program allows businesses the ability to process American Express® Card transactions the same way they process payment card transactions from other major card brands.

Benefits of processing with a provider who offers OptBlue include:

  • One fast payment – American Express Card transactions are paid at the same time as the other card brands, in one lump sum deposit.
  • All card activity reflected on one statement and batch report.
  • One customer service contact for all card brand activity.
  • American Express provides merchants free marketing incentives for simply accepting the card at their business, including listings on the Shop Small® Map and complimentary signage.
