Amex Express Checkout Speeds Up Shopping For Cardmembers

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

Online shoppers with American Express cards will have a faster checkout experience at Delta Air Lines, Hulu, Neiman Marcus, Staples, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM, and many other sites, thanks to Amex Express Checkout’s integration with these merchants.

By using Amex Express Checkout, cardholders can make purchases quickly and securely by using their Amex login information, rather than inputting their personal data manually to each site. Luke Gebb, senior vice president of digital at American Express, said the company’s commitment to leveraging new technology gives good results for merchants and shoppers alike. “We’re pleased by the results, including high conversion rates for merchants, and strong repeat usage from our cardmembers.”

American Express offers several different credit and prepaid card options for customers. Their Blue Cash Preferred credit cards give cash back for every purchase, while their prepaid cards have some of the lowest fees on the market.

Amex Express Checkout increases spending

A survey from PYMNTS.com showed that Amex Express Checkout users spent more than other Amex cardholders; their spending was an average of 78% higher than those who didn’t use Express Checkout in 2015.

Merchants who use Amex Express Checkout include Airbnb, Boxed, Braintree, Newegg, Stripe, and Ticketmaster. Merchants can integrate Amex Express Checkout into their sites by using the Amex for Developers portal. Consumers are less likely to abandon their online shopping carts when they can checkout quickly and seamlessly, and Amex Express Checkout allows them to do this.

Prepaid cards can be used like credit cards

For people who prefer a prepaid card to a credit card, Amex offers the Bluebird and Serve cards; these cards can be used online or in stores, just like credit cards. The difference is, prepaid cards are loaded with money before you can use them, rather than having a line of credit that you have to pay back later. Prepaid cards come in handy for people who want the convenience of using a card, but don’t want to take the chance of going into debt. They can also be used in place of traditional checking accounts; this is especially popular with American Express prepaid cards, which have very low fees.
