1 Business Alliance Program Disclosure

The American Express® Business Alliance program is open to all companies in the United States with a federal tax ID number that can refer companies engaging in business to business (B2B) payments to American Express Global Commercial Services. Authorized officers of eligible companies can enroll in the program as a referring partner at the Business Alliance portal, available at: www.americanexpress.com/businessalliancepartnerportal.

Only Qualified Leads referred to a Global Commercial Services program account via the online Business Alliance portal can lead to a one-time incentive payment from American Express. A one-time incentive payment will be issued only for a Qualified Lead that becomes a Global Commercial Payment customer in the United States (a “New Client”) and spends on a Global Commercial Services account, within one year after the referral was submitted via the Business Alliance portal. Incentive payments are based on each separate referral and will be paid by check or ACH to the company registered as the referring partner. Incentive payments will be made approximately 180 days after spending occurs on the New Client’s Global Commercial Services account. The amount of the incentive payment is based upon the estimated annual charge volume of the New Client’s Global Commercial Services account, to be estimated by American Express in its sole discretion. Notwithstanding the above, American Express has the sole discretion regarding acceptance of all referrals, including Qualified Leads. Additional terms and conditions apply.
