Process an American Express credit card payment

Merchant Account Services lets customers pay you by credit card. Your bank deposits this payment amount into your checking account several days after the customer pays you, so you'll want to add a cash account to keep track of the fact that your customer has paid you and your bank still owes you money.

How you process credit card payments depends on whether you use invoices. Select the appropriate option:


  • Information is also available about how to receive credit card payments through Visa or Mastercard.
  • When you download deposits for more than one credit card payment, Intuit Payment Solutions can show you which payments were part of the deposit. Then you can reconcile the cash account where you record your payments to find out which deposits your financial institution still owes you.
  • Sometimes a bank groups together several payments from the same customer into a single deposit. To keep your records straight, you might want to use the information from your paper statement or the Intuit Payment Solutions website to manually enter each payment separately.
