Commercial BankingVirtual Card

A secure payment tool for goods and services using virtual card number technology

Our Virtual Card solutions provide secure payment for goods and services, giving you the ability to use Virtual Card numbers to settle suppliers without the need to deploy physical cards across your organisation.

Increased control over spend

  • Increased visibility and accuracy of actual spend
  • PCI DSS Compliant for secure card management
  • Limit spend to purchasing policy

Easy to use and implement

  • No change to current processes
  • No need to issue cards to all employees

Work more effectively

Our Virtual Card options provide simple solutions with just one statement and payment. The reporting tools make it easy to monitor costs and ensure that expenditure is matched to booker details, invoice number, cost centre or traveller details as required.

Three flexible options

  • An online portal with the ability to set-up an approval flow, restrict users access to specific supplier profiles and an unlimited amount of custom data fields
  • A Central Travel Booking system which integrates with your Travel Management Company (TMC) to support hotel spend capture with travel agents or procurement systems.
  • A batch payment process gives you the option to enable automatic invoice settlement through your card programme
