Sprint Customers Get Easy Access to Digital Payments with Amex’s Serve

July 21, 2011

American Express this week announced an agreement with Sprint to provide the mobile carrier’s customers with easy access to its Serve digital payments platform, which was launched in March. American Express said the Serve mobile wallet application will be available to Sprint customers on select Android devices by the end of the summer. Serve, according to American Express, “is an easy-to-use digital payment platform that unifies online, offline and mobile payment options into a single account.” The account, which can be used to make purchases online and via mobile phone, can be funded via credit card, debit card, ACH transfer or from another Serve account. “Sprint is a forward thinking company that is constantly looking for new ways to simplify processes and provide the best solutions for its customers. Their decision to promote Serve in the Sprint Zone is a reflection of that philosophy and we are excited to move forward with this relationship,” said David Messenger, executive vice president, Enterprise Growth, American Express. “We believe that customers will benefit greatly from taking advantage of Serve’s functionality as a quick, user-friendly way for tackling the often tedious task of paying bills and making mobile payments.” While this is the first partnership with a mobile carrier, the platform is available across all carriers and supports payments via Android and iPhone with applications for BlackBerry and Windows mobile devices on the way.
