It's much easier to set up on the Amex side with your bank account and routing number information. It lets Amex control when they pull your payment and you can do multiple payments in a month if you choose. Chase routing numbers can be found here.

I was looking for the information on how to push the payment. I would like to be able to over pay leaving a credit balance making my limit larger.

You can push through the Amex site. Your payment amount is not limited by your reporting balance or payment required.

It's telling ne that I can't pay until I have a statement. There is an outstanding balance but no statement yet.

I've never had an issue paying either card before a statement issued. Give customer service a call.

It might be because you're still new, you should be able to pay it whenever after a little time I think...
Wallet: Amex BCE & Chase Freedom. (Credit Card dieting since 2014)

You have a charge card, hence you do not have a pre-determined credit limit.
In My Wallet:
Citi Forward (12/2010) | Citi TY Preferred (05/2011) | Chase Freedom (11/2011) | GECRB/PayPal (05/2012)
Discover it (07/2012) | AMEX BCP (09/2012) | TD/Target REDCard (10/2012) | Chase Ink Classic (11/2012)
BofA BBR (04/2013) | FNBO/Overstock.com (02/2014) | Barclaycard Arrival (04/2014) | FIA/Fidelity AMEX (04/2014)

Kak is right. This is a method to create a credit balance that gives you more spending power. More importantly it is a method to increase your NPSL limit quickly. I used this method to push my NPSL spending limit from 3.5k to over 70k in 2-3 months. Pulling a payment via AMEX interface will not allow you to pay over a certain amount of outstanding balance (1k?).

Kak, to push a payment from Chase. The easiest way is to set up a bill pay for AMEX using their mailing address and your account number. No need for Amex receiving account information. It will look like you are trying to set up payments to pay by mail. However almost for sure that Chase and Amex will do so electronically. Should take a couple of business days to post.
Amex Centurion, Amex Platinum, Amex BCP 8k->24k (5/23/12), Amex TE 15k, Cap One 1.5% 15k->20k (8/7/13), CSP 25k, Chase Palladium 100k, Citibank AA 35k (AU), Firestone 1.8k->2.2k->2.4k (8/20/12), JFCU Jloc 30k, PenFed Plat Rewards 30k, SF Fire 30k, US Bank Cash+ 25k

Thank you, this is what I was looking for. I used the spending power thing on the amex site and despite the no CL hype I am limited to right around 5k from what I can tell. I eventually want to pay employees through a payroll company that takes amex. A second business card of course. But this will be a quick route to a centurian if I can charge my single largest business expense. It will no doubt have to satrt via the method described.
