Like most credit card companies, American Express gives you the option to pay your bill online. Paying online takes a little upfront preparation. You must register for the service, create a password and enter your bank account information, for example. Once you are set up, though, making online payments is easier and much faster than writing a check.

Go to the American Express website and log in to your account. If you do not have an account as of yet, create one by choosing "log in help & registration" on the upper left side of the screen above the log in section.

Once your account is created you can log in by typing in your user ID and password in the log in space provided on the upper left side of the screen.

You will then come to a screen where you will be able to click on the "check and pay bill" button.

Now you will be presented with five choices: 1)statement balance 2)recent payments 3)recent activity 4)outstanding balance or 5) payment due.

From here you will be able to click on a button labeled "pay bill". You will now need to enter in some information. 1)the amount you wish to pay 2)your bank account information 3)payment due date. Choose continue when all of your information is filled out.

Now you will be asked to verify the information you have just submitted. You can choose "cancel" if the information is not correct or "submit" if you wish to go ahead with your payment.

You should now be viewing a confirmation page where you will be thanked for your payment.

Tips & Warnings

  • If you feel your transaction did not go through, call the 1-800 number on the back of your card to verify the information. If is better to be safe and check on your payment than to assume it went through and end up paying finance charges.
  • Always make sure the beginning of the web address contains https instead of http when you are making a payment or giving out bank information. It indicates the site is secure.
