In addition to your personal cards, you can now add your Airbase business card to Apple Pay or Google Pay. If you’re not already a Digital Wallet user, now might be the time to consider becoming one.

Digital Wallet provides contactless payment to eliminate risk.

Digital Wallets are convenient and are more secure than using a physical credit or debit card. This is because card details are not shared with a merchant when a purchase is made. Instead, a unique token is generated to approve each transaction. 

Digital Wallet purchases are “contactless” which adds another type of security for our cardholders. As businesses work to provide safer environments by minimizing physical contact, we expect to see a continued surge in demand for contactless payments from retailers and consumers alike.

Avoid touching a POS card terminal or using a pen for a signature. A Digital Wallet for contactless payment keeps you safer. 

Digital Wallet vs Virtual Cards

Digital Wallets are a consumer-based product and are increasingly accepted by retailers, restaurants, taxis, and public transportation. The B2B sector also has other payment tools like virtual cards, that carry additional benefits for company card spending notably, helping with spending controls and automated accounting entries. 

At Airbase we also know that there are times (for example, when traveling or at a restaurant) that a physical card is easier to use than a virtual card. Now, you can make your physical Airbase corporate card contactless so you don’t have to carry it around, hand it to people, or sign for it.

A Look at Mobile Payments.

Digital Wallets, also referred to as mobile payments, have existed in various guises for many years, but they’ve only gained popularity since Apple Pay announced its Digital Wallet in 2014.

Samsung Pay is available for use on their devices. Apple Pay and Google Pay have broad retail acceptance making them convenient platforms for your Airbase business card.
