Plastiq Working with Amex Cards Again

Plastiq reached out to let us know that they started again allowing payments with an Amex card. For the past couple of weeks it hasn’t been working, but it’s now been restored.

As before, there are still more restrictions with Amex than others, for example, you can’t pay a mortgage with an Amex card. It seems they broadened the restricted payees a bit too. They updated the terms (4.1C) to indicate the following:

For Recipients in the United States, the use of American Express cards is permitted for the following industries: Government, Utilities, Education, Residential Rent and Club Fees and Memberships.

Check this Frequentmiler post for a handy chart of what works and what doesn’t now.

    Small win on a rough day given the USPS news..

    Some payments that were denied changed to accepted after slightly altering some of these fields: Name, phone, and type. One only had to change the type to other category.

    Any recommendations for paying a mortgage with an Amex? Looks like all the avenues have dried up.

    No car payment I’m guessing?

    I have made car payments with Amex for the last three months. Has that changed?
