American Express has launched the use of Apple Pay in the UK for its corporate card members.

The move allows Amex card holders to tap and pay for goods and services using their Apple devices. Amex had already launched Apple Pay for its US customers in August 2015.

Karen Penney, general manager UK of American Express Global Corporate Payments & Small Business Services, said: “As businesses look to make life simpler for their employees, allowing them to use the same technologies for business as they are accustomed to in their personal lives, will have a positive impact on the organisation’s expense management process.”

Individual card holders using a corporate card with Apple Pay will also receive “real time” notification and details of all purchases. Customers can also use the Amex Mobile app which features account monitoring, transaction details and servicing “on the go”.
