American Express has added Apple Pay for its US corporate card customers.

The card company said it is the first major corporate card portfolio activated for Apple Pay, allowing travellers to pay on the go with compatible Apple devices.

Apple Pay allows Amex card members to add their eligible corporate card and pay with their mobile.

“Businesses today are going digital, and American Express is at the forefront of digital innovation, helping companies to streamline their payments systems and simplify their processes,” said Greg Keeley, executive VP, global corporate payments, American Express.

“We continue to invest and expand digital offerings for our corporate customers in ways that maximize security and enhance the user experience.”

Amex said when you add a card to Apple Pay, the actual card numbers are not stored on the device, nor on Apple servers.

Instead, a unique ‘device account number’ is assigned, encrypted and securely stored in the secure element on your device. Each transaction is authorised with a one-time unique dynamic security code.
