Frequently Asked Questions
For refunds, MOTO transactions and access to certain terminal functions, you may need your merchant password to be entered into the terminal.
Note: If you are unsure or have forgotten your merchant password, you can contact the Merchant Helpdesk on 1800 029 749 to create and set a password of your choice.
Make sure to keep this password confidential and secure.
Do you have an AMEX Merchant ID number (MID)? Your Merchant number is a ten digit number, beginning with 979 or 803.
If yes - contact the Merchant Helpdesk so that they can enter this MID number on to your new terminal.
If no - organise your MID by calling Amex on 1300 363 614 (select option 5 for new merchants). Then contact the Merchant Helpdesk on 1800 029 749 so that they can enter this number onto your new terminal.
Note: Let the Helpdesk team know which terminals you want to accept Amex on as the Amex MID must be individually entered on to each new terminal.
