Virtual cards are more convenient, with the ability to start spending straight away from when they’re issued. They’re also more secure, with the ability to see purchases as they happen, pause or block the card if you’re worried they’ve been compromised, and block cards that have been created for specific services without affecting all your subscriptions.
If you’re running a business, employees can take spending into their own hands. You can monitor their spending by watching their transactions in real time, and team members can make purchases themselves without dragging you down in unnecessary admin. You can also generate a virtual card with a specific use-case for your company: for example, you can have one specifically to use for Amazon Web Services that draws from your digital services budget. Spending has clear purposes and limits, giving you total control of your business expenses.
