Now you can use your American Express credit card to make any business payment for Super, tax, rent, contractors, or any supplier who doesn’t accept American Express, and earn reward points.
RewardPay and American Express have teamed up to bring you this payment service. It’s extremely easy to use, just sign up (it’s free and you just need an ABN), add the BSB and account number of the supplier you want to pay and add the amount to pay. Then input your American Express credit card number and we will make the payment to your supplier.
Fees start at 2.15% + GST (1.51% after tax deductions and claiming GST assuming a 30% tax rate) so start using your everyday business spend to earn more reward points for you and your business.
Plus for larger payments we offer rates as low as 1.65% + GST. See table for rates:
