American Express, one of early Apple Pay backers, today announced it is adding Apple Pay compatibility for corporate credit cards issued in the United States. Available today to eligible U.S. corporate cards, the system allows owners of the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and Apple Watch to pay for services online and for goods at contactless merchants in stores with Apple Pay and their corporate credit card on file.
With Apple Pay, AmEx corporate cardholders can enjoy the same strong security and privacy like other cardholders, including Touch ID authentication and tokenization.
Eligible corporate cards include the American Express Corporate Green Card, Corporate Gold Card, Corporate Platinum Card, Corporate Centurion Card, Business Extra Corporate Card and Corporate Defined Expense Program Corporate Card.
Prepaid cards are not eligible.
More information is available over at the AmEx website.
Last week, Pei Wei restaurant chain rolled out Apple Pay to all of its nearly 200 U.S. locations.
Apple Pay expanded into the United Kingdom this summer with support from major banks and more than 250,000 merchant locations after debuting in the United States last September. Later this year, Apple’s mobile payment solution is said to hit Canada, China, Germany and other markets.
