For people who are interested in making a payment for an American Express bill online, there are several resources available. The company's website, independent bill pay sites and similar services offered by investment banks give clients of the credit card company an alternative to paying through the mail or by telephone.
All three resources require that an American Express cardholder create an online account. Each service is geared towards making digital payments easy to manage and pay. Once signed up, balances can be checked and bills can be paid online with a bank account or credit card.

To use the American Express site, clients need to follow a simple online set up that requires them to enter a card number and security code. Alternatively, there are similar forms that need to be completed with ChargeSmart.com, banks and brokerage houses.
To pay an American Express bill using the company's site, users need to login, navigate to the section that covers statements and select the payment method and amount to be paid. With third party sites, there are easy to use procedures that mimic the American Express site. Depending on the portal, the time that the transaction takes to process will vary.
