Apple Pay now works with AmEx Corporate Cards
As soon as Apple’s mobile payment service, Apple Pay, launched last October, I tried to add all of my credit cards to the mobile wallet so I could test it out. Just as quickly, I was disappointed to learn that though American Express supported Apple Pay for some of its consumer credit cards, it did not work with AmEx Corporate Cards.
AmEx Corporate Cards are among the most widely issued corporate credit cards in America, and as such, lots of iPhone and Apple Watch users have not been able to take advantage of Apple Pay’s payment security safeguards while they’re on the road. Apple Pay adds a security layer because it “tokenizes” payment information, so the card digits aren’t ever shared with organizations that receive your contactless payments.
