Incorporated spend limits with virtual card

Our virtual credit cards in Australia are not just handouts with unlimited access to funds. Instead, they have very precise spending limits so that you can control how each card is used. Company expense policies are applied by default, which includes auto-decline for transactions over a certain limit. 

But aside from that, you can also have a fixed budget and expiration date on these cards. You choose whether they get reloaded each month, or if the funds are only for one-time use. Your business virtual cards are powerful and smart.

Approval flows with multi-level verification

The security of your cards also comes with multi-level approval systems. You can set up 5 tiers of approvers, all of whom verify expenses and fund requests. This is a one-time setup, after which push notifications and instantaneous payouts ensure that everything happens with transparency. 

Any non-compliant transactions on these cards automatically get declined, saving effort even for approvers.

How do virtual cards work?

Virtual cards work just like any other payment card such as a credit or debit card. They have a unique 16-digit code, expiry date, and CVV that you must enter to make payments online.

The difference is that you can only use these cards for online payments as they are not tangible in nature and only exist virtually in a digital format.

Another unique aspect of prepaid virtual cards or virtual cards, in general, is that they are made through a method called tokenization.

Tokenization is when a card’s details are replaced with a unique code or token, allowing you to make online purchases without revealing sensitive card details.

A great benefit of this is that you can do this as many times as you like and create unlimited virtual prepaid cards for your business to handle different types of expenses in a secure manner.

How are virtual cards used in business?

1. Employee expense management

In a specific company there may be many employees that need access to the company budget on a day-to-day basis. It can become tedious to manually give them approvals to fund requests for each task.

Instead, a company can issue prepaid virtual cards to their employees and give access to funds in this manner.

2. Supplier and vendor payments

Paying your suppliers and vendors are a critical part of the business to keep operations running smoothly. You can issue virtual cards to make payments to your suppliers and vendors.

These are great payment tools even if your vendors or suppliers are abroad as you can make international payments using your virtual cards.

3. Subscription services and recurring payments

One major area of payments for any modern business is for all the SaaS tools or subscription services that you use. Many teams and employees might be using different subscriptions across the organization.

You can use virtual cards to track and ensure that there is no duplicate purchase of a software service and that all payments are being made with efficient utilization.

4. Online and international transactions

Virtual cards are the perfect tool for making payments online. The reason they are better than using a traditional card is because of the added safety and security that is provided by them.

Because a virtual card is tokenized, it is safer to use it online for domestic and international payments as your actual card details won’t be compromised. Plus you can easily freeze or block the card instantly if the card is compromised.

5. Employee & business travel expenses

While a virtual card cannot be used physically while traveling for business purposes, it can still be used to make bookings for corporate travels online.

Things like booking flights and accommodation is a great way to use the virtual card for business travel while keeping your payment and financial data safe and secure.

Advantages of using a virtual credit card

Simplifies the reconciliation

Virtual card payments make it easier for finance teams to track and understand transactions with the help of labels and codes that are attached to them. Further, they do not need to rely on the accounting team for receipts or explanations.

The automatic syncing of these payments with the general ledger also helps to eliminate the need for manual efforts to reconcile card payments.

Easy to manage vendors

How to implement virtual cards for your business?


Defining spending policies and guidelines

Implementing virtual cards for your business might be easy, but if it is not done in a proper way, it can lead to more issues.

You need to ensure that you also establish concrete spending policies and guidelines for how an employee can and cannot use a virtual card that is issued to them.


Monitoring and tracking transactions

Once your organization gets in the flow of using virtual cards for business, the finance team or administrative team must start tracking and monitoring these transactions.

This way you will be able to ensure that the employees are using the payment tool correctly or not.


Training employees on virtual card usage

Once the necessary policies and spending guidelines have been established, the company must also ensure that each employee gets trained on its usage.

Different aspects such as how to request a new card, how to use it online, whether it can be used multiple times or it is a single-use card, etc. must be taught to the employees.


Regularly reviewing expenses

Another reason to regularly monitor and track all transactions is to use this data to analyze the spending behavior of employees, teams, and the organization as a whole.

This will help you get insights regarding the spending patterns and behavior which in turn will help the company make smarter financial decisions and optimize its processes.

Streamline your business spend with Volopay virtual cards

Individual virtual cards

Allocate individual virtual cards

Many employees find expense reporting to be a tedious and time-consuming process, but virtual cards can help streamline business spending.

By creating unlimited cards, each authorized employee can be assigned their own card, which can also assist in tracking and regulating employee and department expenses.

Assign budget

Assign a unique budget

Each business virtual card can be connected to a departmental budget for more precise allocation and to monitor spending within specific departments.

By routing departmental funds to card payments, you can get a clearer view of how your company's funds are being used and can have more control over their utilization to avoid overspending.

Track employee spending

Track your employee spending

Virtual cards can provide employees with the ability to handle their own business expenses without depending on the accounting teams.

At the same time, these cards can also assist accountants in monitoring how employees are spending their money and can be useful for maintaining compliance with expense policies.

Implement spend limits

Implement spending limits

Giving employees their own cards empowers them to make business purchases on their own, while also putting limits in place to control spending.

For expenses that may be unpredictable, you can create virtual cards with adjustable limits to provide the flexibility.

Multi-level approvals

Set multi-level approvals

If a cardholder needs to exceed their assigned spending limit, they can request additional credit and get it approved from the authorized person.

To ensure compliance with your company's spending policy, you can set up multi-level approval processes for these requests.

Automate payments

Automate payments

Paying for subscriptions can be more challenging to keep track, as forgetting a payment can result in loss of access to the product.

However, virtual cards for businesses can help you to automate these payments, eliminating the need for manual payment.

What are the security features of virtual cards?

1. Dynamic CVV (Card Verification Value)

Generally, payment cards have a 3 or 4-digit CVV code printed on the back to authenticate and execute payments.

A dynamic CVV is one that keeps changing on a frequent basis allowing the user to stay safe from theft and fraud online in case the virtual card’s details are leaked.

2. Time-limited usage

Unlike physical cards, a virtual card can be created according to your specific needs. For example, virtual cards can be single-use or multiple-use in nature and you can also set a custom expiry date for each card.

Single-use cards can be time-bound or even expire immediately after a payment has been made through it.

3. Geographical and merchant restrictions

Similar to how merchant category blocking works on physical and virtual cards so that employees can’t use a card to spend on certain categories, virtual cards can also be restricted to be used only for specific merchants or in a specific geographical location.

4. Two-factor authentication

Probably the most important and prominent security feature is two-factor authentication. This is a system such as receiving an OTP(one-time password) on a mobile number or email to confirm a payment request.

This ensures that even if someone else gets access to your virtual card details, they cannot confirm the payment if they do not get the OTP you received.
