AmEx introduces Apple Pay support for US corporate cards
American Express has added Apple Pay support to its US corporate card members, enabling them to pay on the go with compatible Apple devices.
Apple Pay will enable American Express card members to add their eligible corporate card and pay with their mobile devices at contactless merchants in stores, or within participating apps that accept AmEx.
Moreover, Apple Pay ensures security by not storing the actual card numbers on the device, or on Apple servers when a user adds a card to Apple Pay.
It instead assigns, encrypts and stores a unique device account number in the secure element on the user’s device, with every transaction authorised with a one-time dynamic security code.
American Express executive vice president of global corporate payments Greg Keeley said: “Businesses today are going digital, and American Express is at the forefront of digital innovation, helping companies to streamline their payments systems and simplify their processes.
“We continue to invest and expand digital offerings for our corporate customers in ways that maximize security and enhance the user experience.”
