Benchmark Merchant Solutions (BMS) Joins AMEX's OptBlue Program

AMHERST, NY--(Marketwired - February 23, 2015) - BMS announces their participation, along with top credit card acquirers, in OptBlue, the new merchant acquiring program from American Express.

OptBlue allows BMS to offer their merchants the benefit of a single statement, and one contact for all the major card brands. BMS can now determine AMEX merchant pricing in addition to providing payment processing and servicing.

"Joining OptBlue was a no-brainer for Benchmark," said Benny Silberstein, COO of BMS. "The program will help deliver a smart and easy solution for merchants to accept all major credit cards without going through multiple vendors."

Before OptBlue, merchants who wished to accept American Express cards were required to open an additional AMEX Merchant account, and were subject to separate AMEX billing. With OptBlue, all the merchants' accounts are in one place, allowing them to be serviced and billed together.
