You might have heard of virtual cards before and maybe you have used one for payment already. Or this is the very first time you give this digital payment method a try. No matter how experienced you are, we will try to answer all your questions about virtual cards.
Virtual cards are simply the digital version of normal plastic payment cards such as a Mastercard® credit card with a card number, expiry date and CVC security code. The big difference: There is no plastic.
Are you looking to make paying day-to-day travel expenses easier for your employees? AirPlus Virtual Cards are an award-winning virtual credit card solution that is simple to use, secure and provides a more convenient method for managing business travel expenses.
AirPlus Virtual Cards are designed to extend the limits of your AirPlus company account to bridge any potential acceptance gaps. As such, your employees will always be able to pay for flights, hotels, train tickets and other travel expenses without ever using their own credit cards. In turn, this reduces admin for your finance department by ensuring the reconciliation process is much more transparent.
The virtual card solution works by creating unique, single-use MasterCard numbers for one-time or a set number of purchases. You are free to set spending parameters, and the generated number becomes obsolete after a set amount of uses. For this reason, it provides the benefit of greater security and convenience than using a traditional credit card.
