    Amex for Canadian merchants

    I found this information to be usefull when I found out so I thought I would post it for everyone else.

    I wanted to process US american express transactions through my merchant account but to do so you need to have an imprint of the card or open a seperate merchant acount with american express US. Why is it so difficult for Canadian merchants?!

    Well for one US has different rules compared to what Canada has. Just like Visa/Mastercard has a different rules based on global jurisdiction, AMEX follows suit.
    Not to mention US has it's fare share bankcard institution competition, which is not the case for Canada.

    Yes but from previous experience in "brick and mortar" AmEx have always been more difficult to deal with than Visa/Mastercard.
