I hope they do it. Refusing to enable contactless, filling lawsuits, etc is petty and refusing contactless hurts consumers so badly.

If you don't think the services Visa provides are worth the...

American Express contactless is very hit-or-miss even in countries like the UK with high Amex use and high contactless use. Hasn't affected overall contactless adoption. Tbh, I think it has hurt...

But then you're trusting the shop to do so. I won't present my card until I get an amount on the terminal if at all possible.

I hate when shops (like Target) don't allow you to do this.

It seems sane. Agreeing to pay by presenting your card before you know how much you're paying, has always struck me as absurdity.

Did they introduce Amex Pay in the US? I thought they'd given up on that entirely.

You should report this to the card network and write a complaint to the shop. It's exposing everyone to the risk of a clone of their card being used there.

American Express recently has really gone downhill. At a time when they're losing partnerships they're responding by treating their customers as if their custom is worth nothing to them?!?!?!

American Express is either quite good or absolutely awful to deal with. Even a suspected fraud block gets YOU treated like a criminal.

The contact pad design is one I've never seen on a contactless chip, I'm afraid. Not saying it's impossible - but highly unlikely. Chase turned anti-contactless when they introduced metal cards...
