Virtual solutions

Create unique virtual cards for individual users, purchases, dates or locations

Virtual cards are a convenient way to make payments to your suppliers using specific transaction dates and values. They can be used face to face, online, by phone or embedded into your systems. So both you and your suppliers know they will be paid on time and on budget.
