So as it says I don't currently accept Amex over the telephone jut now as when I had taken out my merchant account with my supplier i decided against it due to their stupid fees but recently I've had a few clients/customers asking to use american express is it worth getting it added to my account and paying the almost 5% fee on each transaction ?

I accept all other major credit/debit cards at the moment.

What does every one else think ? Do you accept Amex?

We've never accepted Amex - every other major card is fine. Where clients have requested to use AMex - a subsequent card has always been offered. I've had an Amex card for many years (great bonuses, insurance, etc) and try to use it where I can. It's a clever strategy by Amex - every cardholder is a sales person in practice.

Not my area at all but is there not a precedent for passing on fees to people when they want to pay by more expensive methods (or is that just the kind of wheeze you find with budget airlines)?

I think it applies anywhere when booking something whither it's tickets for a flight or tickets for the cinema LOL

Further more i decided against it too much hassle for what it's really worth.
