American Express announces staples center to accept expresspay for contactless payments


The World Class Sports and Entertainment Venue to make Concession Lines Fast and Convenient for Fans.
American Express today announced STAPLES Center, in conjunction with Levy Restaurants as the latest national merchant partner to accept ExpressPay from American Express®. Cardholders can use ExpressPay at more than 20 concession stands throughout STAPLES Center.

“This technology allows STAPLES Center to provide guests with an easy and efficient way to purchase food and beverage items throughout the venue,” Lee Zeidman, STAPLES Center, General Manger. “Ensuring that our fans and guests are satisfied when they visit STAPLES Center is our number one priority, and we feel that ExpressPay from American Express allows us to offer them something that will truly enhance their experience.”

ExpressPay from American Express is a fast contactless payment option that consists of a secure chip powered by radio frequency technology. The feature is an easy-to-use alternative to cash for making everyday purchases at merchants where speed and convenience are important.

“We are delighted about our partnership with STAPLES Center to further expand ExpressPay’s momentum and help customers gain even greater speed and convenience when visiting concession stands at the Center,” said Leigh Malnati, Vice President of Cardless Payments at American Express.

American Express was the first issuer to launch contactless cards nationally with the rollout of Blue from American Express® with the ExpressPay feature in June 2005. ExpressPay is also embedded in the Clear and Starwood Preferred Guest® Credit Card from American Express and available via a key fob that can be linked to any American Express® Card. Users simply hold the Card or key fob with ExpressPay next to a contactless reader near the register to complete a purchase. Payment is authorized in seconds and no signature is required for most purchases less than or equal to $25.00. The chip enables end-to-end transaction security. Blue and Clear and the Starwood Preferred Guest Card from American Express also have a magnetic strip and function as traditional credit cards.

American Express continues to sign national and regional contactless payment merchants. For a full list of merchants now accepting ExpressPay visit,
