What’s New With OptBlue?

November 20, 2017

OptBlue, the small business card acceptance solution from American Express, has undergone some recent enhancements. Here’s a look at why there’s never been a better time for your business to accept American Express.

  • New pricing and policy changes have been made to Government, Education and Hospital industries so it’s easier to enable more merchants on OptBlue.
  • Disputes policies were updated to maintain fairness and transparency. In the first three months the new policies were in effect, disputes were down 11%, and merchants saved over $5MM in chargebacks.
  • OptBlue wholesale fees for small restaurants transactions were reduced
