Do Not Accept American Express

Should small businesses accept American Express? I highly recommend against it.


Not just because of their higher fees… no there is a much darker side to American Express. American Express’s chargeback dispute center almost never sides with the merchant even when provided with signed contracts and extensive work documentation. Visa and Mastercard are far more fair here and make just decisions.

Avoid accepting American Express like the plague if you are a business owner.
