Airbase’s virtual and physical cards provide best-in-class visibility along with control and market-leading cash back.

How virtual cards work:

  1. The employee submits a virtual card request, complete with category of spend, and it is automatically routed to the right approver(s).
  2. Once approved, the employee simply copies the card details and uses them for one-time or recurring online spend. Receipts are uploaded directly to the transaction in Airbase or emailed to a unique Receipt Inbox and automatically attached. OCR is used to populate the details of the transaction.
  3. Transactions are automatically synced to the GL, including vendor coding, GL, category, line and transaction tags.

Note: Physical card transactions can also have automated approval workflows, upfront spend categorization, and will automatically sync to your GL.

Use case example: 

An employee request to purchase a $50 Amazon Gift Card with a one-time virtual card was approved. They simply copy the card details and make the purchase.
