Barclaycard Commercial Purchasing card
Barclaycard Business Purchasing card
Increase efficiency and cut costs
Barclaycard Commercial Purchasing Cards will help your company make significant savings, in time and money, by streamlining the overall procurement process, with staff and suppliers reaping the benefits too.
Employees are empowered by the ease of making business purchases through a variety of channels – in person, over the phone or on the internet. This eliminates the need for manual or duplicate data entry, and invoice settlement is greatly simplified.
Visa purchasing solutions make all expenditure highly visible, leading to improved compliance with company procurement policies. Protective and preventative measures also give an even higher degree of control. In-depth Management Information can be used to identify beneficial sourcing opportunities and improve negotiating power with suppliers.
All of these benefits are delivered via a selection of individual features that work together to make Visa purchasing a winning procurement solution.
If you or your cardholders currently hold a Barclaycard Business Purchasing card, we will issue you with a Barclaycard Commercial Purchasing card to replace them when they expire.
Your Purchasing Card is one of the easiest ways to pay for your business purchases. It can be used wherever you see the Visa sign, at more than 27 million outlets worldwide*.
Simpler, faster and more convenient
Your purchasing card is the quickest way to pay for your high-volume, low-value purchases whether online, in person, over the phone or by mail order. Your card should always be used in accordance with your organisation’s specific purchasing policy.
Your card makes it easy to keep track of your expenses , because each month we will send you an individual statement detailing all the purchases made with your card. Your company will also receive a summary of all expenditure on its account, so if you have any queries, please raise them promptly with your account supervisor.
