What are prepaid business cards used for?
Prepaid business cards are used to give management and finance complete visibility over spending, without taking accountability away from staff. A loaded card can be used in any situation in which you could otherwise use a debit or credit card. You might, for example, use them to give a budget to salespeople on the road, removing the hassle of expenses. Or you could give every employee an individual learning and development fund.
What are prepaid credit cards?
Prepaid credit cards, or prepaid business credit cards, are another term for prepaid business cards, a spending solution that gives your teams control over how they spend their budgets. While often referred to as prepaid credit cards, there’s no credit involved – instead, you load up each card with funds that staff can then spend.
How do prepaid business cards work?
Prepaid business cards work by enabling you to give cards to employees and departments. You decide how much cash gets allocated to each card, and where it can be spent. Then you can manage every aspect of the cards, for free, from an online payment console. After that, it’s up to your staff to decide how to spend their budgets.
What is the difference between a prepaid card and a credit card?
The biggest difference between a prepaid card and a credit card is that prepaid cards don’t require any credit to function. This brings two significant advantages for prepaid cards: there’s no debt involved, and no restrictions on who can use them – all you need is a registered company name.
Are prepaid business cards safe?
Yes, prepaid business cards are one of the safest ways of managing business spending. Unlike business debit cards, prepaid cards don’t give users access to the main company account, so you have complete control over how much staff spend. And unlike credit cards, there’s no chance of going into debt.
