Expanding Square’s suite of financial services offerings, forthcoming Square Credit Card will run on the American Express network, deepening the two companies’ ties and commitment to empowering small businesses
American Express (NYSE: AXP) and Square announced an expansion of their relationship and plans to launch a new credit card built specifically for Square sellers on the American Express network.
The new card will be the first credit card Square offers to its community of small business owners in the U.S. It will integrate directly with Square’s broader ecosystem of solutions, empowering sellers to organize their finances and manage their cash flow from the same platform they use to run their business.
“Small businesses can struggle to find fair and simple solutions for their credit needs. Square has spent years building a successful lending program to eliminate this barrier for sellers, and we’re uniquely positioned to innovate even further in this space to expand access to new types of credit products,” said Luke Voiles, General Manager of Square Banking. “We wanted to create a product on a payment network that has a strong track record of supporting small merchants, making this card a natural progression of our existing relationship with American Express.”
“As champions of small businesses, our brands will offer a credit card product specifically designed for Square sellers, backed by the trust and security of the Amex network,” said William Stredwick, Senior Vice President of Global Network Services North America at American Express. “Millions of small merchants already welcome American Express Cards through Square, and we look forward to expanding our relationship to further support the Square seller community with this innovative product.”
