New Square Amex Card Coming Soon for Small Businesses
American Express and Square announced today plans for a new credit card built specifically for Square sellers.
The new card will be the first credit card Square offers to its community of small business owners in the U.S. It promises to integrate directly with Square’s broader ecosystem of solutions, meaning that business owners can 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, in the press release. “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 and General Manager 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.”
The Square Credit Card will be available to eligible Square sellers in the U.S.. The card will be powered by i2c Inc. and issued by Celtic Bank. Square will announce additional details about the card and benefits next year.
