Accept American Express for FREE with Card Saver


If you are currently a Card Saver customer, you can now accept American Express cards in your business free! Just get in touch with us either via our website or on the phone to enable AMEX payments on your device.

Why should you accept American Express?

It’s not just American tourists who use American Express – British consumers do too. Yet many UK businesses still choose not to offer this method of payment, so we’ve put together some key points and benefits of accepting American Express to help educate small business owners.

The main reason for accepting Amex is that consumers spend on average 3.2 times more annually with this credit card in comparison to other credit cards in the UK. As well as this American Express provides their users with travel points, cashback and other rewards – plus refund/purchase protection.

If a consumer comes into your business hoping to spend a considerable amount of money on your products and is told as the check out that you don’t accept Amex, this could have a lasting effect on their opinion on your business. Consumers are often particular about their method of payment so being told ‘no’ could eliminate the possibility of them returning.

This is why it is imperative for you to offer your consumers as many payment options as possible, here are a few services Card Saver can offer to you:
