AmEx Offers Small Business an Entree to E-Commerce
If you're a small business or firm, chances are you or your clients may accept American Express for payment. If so, the credit card and financial services giant is making it easier for you to begin an e-commerce effort by helping supply some of the tools.
The move by American Express to provide these services is another step the company has taken to partner with small business.
One of the primary components of this new e-commerce effort is providing businesses with the ability to accept American Express for payment over the Internet. Also provided are free Internet access, Web design tools, marketing assistance and a method to gather sales leads.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
