We’ve come across American Express AccessLine which is a payment service for companies who want to pay any supplier with a charge card to help their cash flow. Obviously this only appeals to a small number of HFP readers who are small business owners, but we thought it was worth mentioning regardless.
Corporate card members with an American Express Corporate Green Card, American Express Corporate Gold Card or American Express Corporate Platinum Card can use this payment service for domestic and international payments.
It is basically a corporate version of Billhop, scaled up for the demands of small companies. Amex pays your suppliers directly into their bank account and then adds the cost – plus a transaction fee, of course – to your card bill.
As well as having up to 55 days to pay the Amex bill, you will earn 1 Membership Rewards point for each eligible £1 spent. This is clearly of appeal to our readers!
If this is of interest, the website with more information and to sign up is here.
