Easily send a temporary, virtual credit card to pay for business expenses.

Corporate credit cards make expense management easier, but it doesn't necessarily make sense to issue them to everyone in your organization. With Instant Card, you can extend corporate purchasing power to those who need it anywhere, instantly.

IT needs to purchase laptops to deploy to remote employees. A contractor needs to buy materials or tools for a project. Any time anyone in your organization needs to make an unplanned business purchase and doesn't have a corporate credit card – like job candidates, contractors, volunteers, or infrequent travelers – consider sending them an Instant Card instead.

Instant Card is a fast, efficient and easy way to digitally send a temporary, single-use virtual credit card to anyone for immediate use on a mobile device. Not only can Instant Card eliminate the need for personal card spend and reimbursement, it can also create greater rebate opportunities for your organization.
