    This was a very helpful review, thank you. Can you clarify in case I missed it, are there baseline monthly fees a business will be charged if opening an account w/ AMEX Merchant Services, or would it be more like Square/Stripe where you’re only charged when transactions are made?

    Hi Andrew,

    At the time of our review, a flat-rate pricing option was available for some low-volume businesses that cost $7.95/mo., but did not charge for individual transactions. Otherwise, merchants would only pay for Amex transaction processing, like Square. That said, this review is due for an update, so it’s possible that this pricing option is no longer available, and it’s also worth pointing out that Amex doesn’t appear to mention it on their website. However, most merchants sign up for Amex processing through their current payments processor, and we’ve never heard of any provider charging a monthly fee for this. I hope that helps to answer your question!
