American Express announced this morning that it is expanding its ExpressPay pilot in the Phoenix area.
ExpressPay is an easy-to-use alternative to cash for making purchases at
merchants where speed and convenience are important – such as quick serve
restaurants, supermarkets, drug stores, gas stations, and corporate
cafeterias. Users simply hold the ExpressPay key fob next to a companion
reader at checkout to make purchases. Payment is authorized in seconds and no
signature is required. ExpressPay links directly to an existing credit,
charge or debit card to fund the purchase.
ExpressPay operates in two different modes. You can directly link it to an American Express card account and each payment will be posted to that account. Alternatively, you can load value into your ExpressPay account from an American Express, MasterCard, Visa or Discover Card and each payment will be deducted from the prepaid account balance.
