Due to their ridiculous policies toward Internet merchants in many areas, but especially in regards to chargebacks, we no longer allow sellers to guarantee their accounts here with any American Express card. This includes the original American Express card, Blue, and Optima cards.
To be allowed to list items for sale on this site, you must either place a VISA, MasterCard or Discover card on file with us via our Place a Credit Card on File page, or you must place a bank account on file via our Place a Bank Account on File page. Doing any of these will allow you to list items for sale.
Once you place a credit card or bank account on file, we give you until the 20th of each month to pay your prior month's bill. You can mail in a check, or manually make a credit card payment with any card (including American Express) and your credit card on file will not be charged as long as your payment is received prior to the 20th of the month.
If you wish to pay your monthly bill via American Express that can still be accommodated. You will need to place a VISA or MasterCard card on file with us via our Place a Credit Card on File page, or place a bank account on file via our Place a Bank Account on File.
Then, after you get your statement each month, you can login prior to the 20th of the month to our Make a Credit Card Payment page and pay your current balance with your American Express card.
We are sorry if you are an American Express cardholder and this means more hassle for you. American Express rips off Internet merchants like ourselves with the highest rates, worst customer service, and total lack of support in fighting fraudulent chargebacks. We have eaten thousands of dollars in fraudulent chargebacks and are no longer willing to do so.
If you wish to complain, first go to AmexSucks.com and read about the problems other merchants have had with American Express, then contact American Express and tell them their policies need to be changed.
Thank you for your continued support.
