Brisbane-based fintech unlocks BPAY bill payments for American Express card members
Mobile bill payments platform, Sniip has today partnered with American Express to enable Australian American Express card members to easily pay bills.
The move unlocks BPAY’s 60,000-strong network of billers that can now be paid via American Express through Sniip.
“Until now, customers have often not been given the option to pay their household bills using an American Express card, as many businesses have not made it available for their customers. Through our new partnership with American Express, card members now have the ease and convenience of using their American Express card through the Sniip app, at the same cost as other card providers,” said Damien Vasta, CEO of Sniip.
Robert Tedesco, Vice President of American Express Global Merchant Services said, “Sniip has a customer-centric approach to the bill payment experience. Our partnership with Sniip allows American Express card members to use their card to pay any biller that accepts payments through BPAY and still have the benefit of accruing all the same great rewards points.”
Sniip’s customer first approach allows time-poor consumers to pay and manage any bill on their mobile. The app revolutionises bill management, a task that is still performed manually 74% of the time.
Users can scan the BPAY Biller Code or import a bill from their email using the Sniip app and pay in less than 10 seconds, using any debit or credit card.
The partnership is expected to help Sniip rapidly scale its business, building on its strong foundation of more than 30,000 customers already using its platform which has processed more than $80 million worth of bill payments.
“As part of the agreement, Sniip will be promoted via the Amex Offers Program to all Australian American Express card members. This is a great way to offer the benefits of the Sniip app to a large network of people, all of whom pay bills, with an added incentive for first-time users” said Sniip Chief Executive Damien Vasta.
The partnership follows Sniip’s recent enablement as a BPAY Payer Institution Member (PIM) earlier this year, having been sponsored into the BPAY scheme by e-payments giant, Indue Ltd.
