Any questions?

How can I activate American Express as quickly as possible?

We will do the online registration with you comfortably on the phone. Then, you will receive an email from American Express for a POSTIdent, which you can perform directly online. Alternatively, you can print out a coupon and proceed with the identification at the closest post office. The activation will be confirmed shortly afterward by American Express. After that, we will switch Amex on in the backend of your card payment system, and you will receive an email after the successful activation with the subject “orderbird Pay - Let’s go with American Express.”
