Sage Pay, formerly Protx, announces deal with American Express

Optix Solutions would like to bring to your attention a recent deal between Sage Pay (formerly Protx) and American Express for customers wishing to accept American Express cards.

The agreement means that if you apply to accept American Express through Sage Pay, not only will American Express waive the standard £150 joining fee, but you will ONLY pay a merchant service fee of 1.5% on the first £5,000 of American Express transactions you process.

Recent research conducted by CyberSource found that merchants who support payment types beyond credit cards, such as gift certificates, typically see significant increases in online sales.

It also concluded that merchants who offer more payment methods have lower shopping cart abandonment rates and on average up to 20% higher order conversion.

No additional development work is required by Optix in order for you to start accepting American Express Cards unless you wish to add the American Express credit card logo to your website and or make reference to its availability.

Further details of this special offer can be found on the Sage Pay website by logging on to: or by calling the Sage Pay team on: 0845 111 4455.
