Restrict American Express

This article provides information on the use of American Express as a form of payment.

Most organizations are approved for all types of credit cards, but some choose to restrict American Express, due to a slightly higher fee structure, and the use of American Express for both Online Giving and Payments in Forms can be restricted. 

Here are the steps to turn off, or restrict American Express:

1 Go go to Settings.

2 On the Giving Settings card click on the ellipses (3 vertical dots).

3 From the drop down menu, select Edit Giving Settings.

4 On the side sheet, turn on or off the ability to use American Express with the toggle. This will affect all future payments and donations, it will not stop current recurring gifts that are using an American Express card. This limits the card type for giving and for forms.

5 Click on Save to process changes.
