Today, American Express announced they are giving their corporate cardmembers the ability to make transactions with Apple Pay.

In a press release, American Express says it is the first major corporate card to be integrated with the Apple Pay mobile payments system.

Corporate American Express cardholders can now pay with their mobile device at contactless merchants in stores or directly within participating apps that accept American Express. The cards that will work with Apple Pay include the Corporate Green, Platinum, Centurion, Gold, Business Extra and the Defined Expense Program.

“We continue to invest and expand digital offerings for our corporate customers in ways that maximize security and enhance the user experience,” Greg Keeley, Executive Vice President, Global Corporate Payments for American Express, said in a statement.

Apple Pay was added as a payment option to the American Express consumer credit cards and OPEN small business cards in October 2014.

Apple Pay was introduced in the United States market in October of last year. And last month, Apple Pay expanded to the United Kingdom. It is estimated to be compatible with 70% of credit and debit cards in the UK.
