Irish fintech firm eCOMM Merchant Solutions has been chosen as a payment aggregator for American Express (AmEx) cards across Europe.

The agreement enables eCOMM’s merchant network in Europe to accept payment through AmEx.

AmEx vice president, partner management, Tania Platt said: “We are confident that this announcement marks the start of what will be a long and successful partnership between our two companies.

“As eCOMM continues to expand its base of operations across Europe, and adds to its range of services, this will deliver more choice and convenience for our Card Members.”

Furthermore, apart from Ireland, eCOMM currently trades in the UK, Greece and Cyprus.

eCOMM CEO Noel Moran said: “American Express brings with it a substantial base of Card Members from around the globe. It’s key for us to be able to support our sponsored merchants in allowing their customers to pay however they choose.
