By Aaron Humes: American Express credit card holders can now enjoy ease of purchase in Belize through the Belize Bank Limited network as of January 13.
The Bank has agreed with the U.S. company to process its credit card transactions using its merchant acquiring service at point of sale, joining Visa and MasterCard.
It’s considered a boon for tourists as most of the nearly 77 percent of visitors from the United States prefer to use American Express to buy at point-of-sale at hotels, restaurants, and tour companies in major tourist destinations in Belize – San Pedro, Caye Caulker, San Ignacio, Hopkins, and Placencia.
The Bank promises to develop secure and efficient payment solutions to help merchants adapt to their customer’s needs and payment methods, resulting in, according to Chief Operating Officer Agata Ruta, “lower[ing] the cost of processing in Belize and provide robust, reliable services bringing modern financial services to the Belizean market”.
Mario Luna, Regional Vice President Latin America & Caribbean, Global Network Partnerships at American Express, invited “local merchants to experience the powerful backing of American Express Card Acceptance, where their businesses can benefit and grow by having access to a group of higher spending customers and at the same time, improving their payment experience.”
For merchants wanting to find out more information or how they can sign up, please contact one of the Belize Bank Sales & Business Development Managers in your area or visit the Bank’s website at www.belizebank.com.
