    We have always accepted American Express, not sure what you mean? Unless this means the fees for AMX will be included now on WindRiver statements.

      Thank you for the question as others might be wondering that themselves. Eventually all of our clients will enjoy the benefit of having all their card brands on one Wind River monthly statement.

      American Express is stepping us through a process with the end result being that all the information will be on one statement for our clients. One of the beginning steps in the process is allowing all of our clients currently not accepting American Express to start accepting American Express if they would like. This is a reminder blog for those merchants.

      We are very pleased to be heading in the direction of one statement as fast as American Express will allow us to move and we are targeting that feature for existing American Express acceptors as early as possible in 2016. Thank you for your patience as it won’t be long. Sorry for any confusion. Thanks for reading our blog.
