American Express has brought to the market Amex Express Checkout, a first-ever, fast and secure way for U.S. cardholders to check out quickly at participating online merchants by using their americanexpress.com account login.
With Amex Express Checkout, Card Members simply use their existing americanexpress.com User ID and Password, and American Express auto-fills the checkout fields with their American Express® Card details and relevant account information in just a few clicks. Unlike other online payments tools currently in the marketplace, Amex Express Checkout is not a wallet, and does not require a Card Member to create or manage a new account.
Amex Express Checkout is available for Card Members to use online today at BarkBox, Burberry, Ledbury, Newegg, Sabon, Ticketmaster, Warby Parker and The Wall Street Journal. American Express and Stripe are working together to allow merchants using Stripe as a payments platform to easily enable Amex Express Checkout for their customers. And, Amex Express Checkout is expected to be available in the coming months on websites for Avis Car Rental, Banana Republic, Cole Haan, Hulu, Gap, Intermix, Old Navy, POPSUGAR Must Have, Rocketmiles, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM and others.
With Amex Express Checkout, a Card Member’s account information is transferred to the merchant through a token allowing for safer transactions than traditional online checkout. And because American Express auto-fills account information in real-time for every online transaction via Amex Express Checkout, both Card Members and merchants are assured that the Card number and billing details provided are current – eliminating the need to manually update those details, as may be required with an online wallet.
To shop with Amex Express Checkout, Card Members just enter their existing americanexpress.com account login and choose their Card. American Express securely auto-fills the checkout fields. Card Members can confirm or edit their information on the merchant site before submitting an order.
Starting today, Card Members also will get a one-time $10 statement credit per merchant when they use Amex Express Checkout online at BarkBox, Burberry, Ledbury, Newegg, Sabon, Ticketmaster, Warby Parker and The Wall Street Journal through 9/7/15.
