Pivotal Payments joins American Express OptBlue® Program

U.S. program to streamline American Express® Card acceptance for small merchants

PLANO, TX, May 12, 2015 – Pivotal Payments, a leading provider of technology-driven global payment processing solutions, announced today that it is now participating in the American Express OptBlue program. Small merchants can accept American Express Cards and enjoy the simplicity of a consolidated relationship with Pivotal Payments, no longer needing to open a separate account or be billed separately, providing a streamlined workflow and reduced back-office management.

Pivotal Payments continues to market innovative solutions that deliver higher value to its merchants and sales partners, and will now be able to sign and fully service small merchants who wish to accept American Express Cards the same way they do all other payment cards from major card networks. The OptBlue program, which is available to eligible small merchants in the United States processing less than $1 million annually in American Express transactions, makes it easier for Pivotal's clients to focus on marketing, customer service and the other tasks critical to running a successful small business.

Benefits include:

  • One customer service contact for all card processing needs
  • Single deposit for all card transactions
  • Same statement for all card networks
  • Simplified reconciliation for all card transactions
  • Rapid initial set-up

"Pivotal Payments is excited to be joining the OptBlue program and to provide small merchants with improved credit card acceptance options," said Philip Fayer, president and chief executive officer of Pivotal Payments. "We're pleased to be able to offer our clients time savings, value added tools and improved processes to more effectively manage their payments."
