TORONTO, Nov. 30, 2016 /CNW/ – American Express today announces the launch of Amex Pay, a smart, secure, and simple way to pay using mobile contactless payments on eligible Android devices wherever American Express contactless payments are accepted. Amex Pay is available exclusively through the Amex App for eligible Consumer, Small Business and Corporate Cards issued by Amex Bank of Canada.1
“The launch of Amex Pay is another example of our commitment to innovation and providing our Cardmembers with more ways to use their Cards,” says Suat Alaybeyoglu, Vice President Consumer Acquisition & Management at American Express Canada. “Cardmembers can shop with ease using their mobile devices, while continuing to experience the service they’ve come to expect from American Express.”
American Express, which has always been known for its exceptional service, is focusing its attention on taking that service to another level and reaching its mobile-first customers. This includes an increased focus on the Amex App (with revamped, new features, like Use Points for Purchases2), and providing more options to pay with an American Express Card using a mobile device.
The launch of Amex Pay allows American Express Cardmembers in Canada to shop with speed wherever American Express contactless payments are accepted using an eligible Android device. In addition, Cardmembers can rely on the trusted safety and security of American Express, whether they pay in-store with their eligible mobile devices or their plastic American Express Cards, or use their Card online. American Express’ intelligent security systems can help detect fraud by spotting something unusual in a Cardmember’s spending pattern, and our Fraud Protection Guarantee3 lets Cardmembers shop with confidence.
To get started, Cardmembers can simply activate an eligible American Express Card with Amex Pay on an eligible Android device by downloading or updating the Amex App.
