1 61% of consumers surveyed report they’re more likely to make a purchase from a small merchant when they see on the storefront that their payment method is accepted. American Express commissioned internet panel survey conducted in April 2017 based on purchases made at small merchants in the 3 months prior to the survey. “Consumers surveyed” consists of survey respondents who typically look on the front door or front window to see whether or not their payment method is accepted when making purchases from small merchants and who either (1) reported that they have an American Express card and used that card to make purchases at small merchants in the prior 3 months; or(2) reported that they do not have an American Express card and used Visa, MasterCard, a debit card, or payment services to make purchases at small merchants in the prior 3 months.
