Ever been told “…we don’t accept American Express?” Well, you won’t have to tell that to your members anymore. We are pleased to announce that your organization can now accept American Express as a form of payment. This is an option that is configurable by administrators, and can be easily “turned on” if your organization elects to add this for convenience of its members.
Login as administrator. From the Admin Home page, go to Manage Account | Manage Organization | Payment Info, and change the settings for credit cards. If your organization already accepts Visa and MasterCard, and you don’t want to add American Express – no changes are necessary. To add American Express, simply check the box. (click on image to the left for larger version).
The standard fee of 2.55% + $0.30 per transaction will apply to all Visa and MasterCard payments. If you activate American Express, the fee is 4.45% + $0.30 per transaction. Note that when you have Visa/MCand American Express activated at the same time, you will be charged based on the type of credit card used. Your account statments will now be broken down by payment type, so you can account for card useage.
Note that the American Express payment option is available only to customers using SportsSignup as their merchant account provider.
