Holiday season wins with American Express via Mollie

It’s no secret that the holiday season is one of the most important sales events of the year for online businesses and ecommerce brands.

If you work in ecommerce, you might have even already launched new products and marketing campaigns or boosted your stock levels to ensure you hit your sales goals during this period.

But, there’s one thing you might have forgotten – an easy shift that can attract high-spending, loyal customers who might be ready to spend big.

So, what is it? American Express.

With more than 135+  million Cards in circulation across more than 170 countries (1), American Express is almost certainly the favoured payment method for some of your most valuable customers.

Simply put: showing customers that you accept American Express at checkout can help you avoid abandoned carts, boost conversions, and increase your average order value. 

In fact, American Express UK ® Cardmembers spend on average 1.4x more per transaction and 3.8x more annually (2). And 77% say they’re more loyal to businesses that accept American Express than those that don’t (3). 

So, showing customers that you accept American Express throughout their checkout experience is vital. If you don’t, you’re missing out on the chance to win as many sales as possible during this holiday season and beyond.

And the benefits American Express offers don’t end there. With unique features like Pay with Points, SafeKey ™, and Click to Pay, you can also reduce friction and boost customer confidence when paying for large transactions.

Now is the perfect time to start leveraging the power of American Express via Mollie, which is why we’re launching a competition with exciting prizes.

Here’s how it works: add the American Express logo to various stages of your checkout experience, or ask your development team to do so. If a customer completes a transaction using American Express as their payment method within two months, you could win several prizes, including agency or digital marketing credit.
