Top Corporate Card Tips

1. Card-to-card transfers

Use free card-to-card transfers directly from the online platform to remove funds from a card you intend to cancel or share funds to give a staff member instant access to spending money.

2. Easy international payments online

Make international payments to bank accounts abroad directly from your corporate card account using the funds from your company account balance. Easily add and amend beneficiaries for international payments through FairPay online.

3. Keep an eye on activity

See when orders were placed and by whom with access to real-time order reports. Company controllers can register to receive email notifications every time one of your users places an order on the account so you can have a much or as little oversight as you require. Once transactions have been annotated by card users, filter data by user, spend category, project code, currency, date and more.

Access support through the FairFX support team, out of hours Mastercard support, a platform userguide manual and social media. Make sure you have our Corporate Customer Service details to hand - +44 (0) 20 7778 9355/7514.

6. Pay staff abroad

Pay staff based abroad, contractors or freelancers by issuing them with corporate cards and loading funds for them to spend whenever and wherever they are in the world.

7. Stick to the budget

Agree trip budgets for staff travel and expense costs up front and load it on their cards to encourage staff to spend wisely and stick to the budget. Benefit from the "prepaid mentality" of our corporate cards that automatically reduces unnecessary spending as staff can only spend what you load.

8. Keep your account topped up for emergencies

Keep funds in your account pot in case staff abroad urgently need access to funds, so that you can transfer instantly.

9. Use it as a purchasing tool

Provide key staff a P-card for purchasing everything from office condiments and stationery to flights and specialist goods online. If you're buying goods from abroad, you'll save on the exchange rate with a low 1.5% currency fee compared to 2.5 - 3% from typical credit cards.

10. Get organised

Categorise spend by team, department, local or international office as well as by project code or client. Your view on every line item of spend has just been transformed.
