Integrated Payments Providers Program


The Integrated Payments Providers program is designed to help third-party solution vendors develop, certify, and market their products or services that are compatible with American Express requirements. The program provides a central point of contact for technical and specification guidance, certification assistance, and production support.


The program helps better serve and foster relationships with the organizations that service American Express Merchants at the Point of Sale (POS) in the form of software, products, and services. Through this initiative, it is our goal to provide clear insight and direction for future interactions with American Express.
