Successful Partnership

Remember that you don’t have to actually sell our Global Corporate Payments program. We only ask you to identify clients or business contacts who can benefit from our products, and then warmly refer them to us. Our sales team will then follow up with your contact and do the rest.

You'll have more success, however, if you know how to (1) start the conversation; and (2) talk to clients about American Express and can articulate all the benefits of our customized commercial card solutions.

Conversation starters

  • How do you currently manage expenses at your company?
  • What challenges or issues do you have with your current expense management solution?
  • Are your employees using their personal cards for business expenses?
