You can connect your business Visa card to Expend and create expenses from transactions in a few simple steps.

Before you start

  • Only Visa cards are currently supported.

  • When adding a card, a “microcharge” (an amount of less than £1.00) is authorised for verification. This is immediately reversed, so it is never actually taken from your account.

  • Only transactions done after connecting the card will be imported. Earlier transactions cannot be imported.

Adding your card

On the web dashboard

  1. In the dashboard menu, click Cards, and then click Corporate Cards.

  2. Click Connect Card.

  3. Select the type of card and click Continue.

  4. Enter the Bank Name and, optionally, a nickname to help you recognise the card.

  5. Please read the “Get Started” dialog, and then click Continue.

  6. Enter the Card number, Expiry date, and Country of issue, ensure that the checkbox is selected, and click Next.

  7. Check your card statement for the microcharge amount. Enter the amount on the “Verify your card” dialog and click Verify.

Your card will be shown on the Corporate Cards page.

In the mobile app

  1. On the Cards screen, tap Corporate Cards (at the top of the screen).

  2. Under Connect a New Card, tap the picture of an empty card with a . If you already have a card, you can add another one by scrolling to the right until you see the .

  3. Select the type of card and tap OK.

  4. Enter the Bank Name and, optionally, a nickname to help you recognise the card.

  5. Please read the “Get Started” dialog, and then click Continue.

  6. Enter the Card number and Expiry date, ensure that the checkbox is selected, and tap Done.

  7. Check your card statement for the microcharge amount. Enter the amount on the “Verify card” dialog and click Verify. (Please also see the note below.)

    If you are not able to get and enter the amount right away, you can tap Cancel and repeat step 2 again later (leaving the unverified card as it is) – you will be prompted for the amount again. If you are still unable to verify, please delete the card and start over.

Your card will now be shown under Corporate Cards.

Troubleshooting verification

If your card cannot be verified, you can easily delete it and add it again. Please ensure that your card is verified before you start to use it with Expend.

Managing your expenses

Please see the following article: Raising expenses from corporate card transactions

Since they are raised from a card managed within Expend, these expenses are classified as expense reports.

Once created, they are listed on the My Expenses page, and can be managed in the same way as all your other expenses.

Deleting your card

Please note

  • After deleting a card, you will no longer be able to raise expenses from existing card transactions, even if they were done before the card was deleted. Please ensure all expenses have been raised before deleting your card.

  • You can add the same card again after deleting it. However, transactions done during the time that the card wasn’t connected will not be imported.

On the web dashboard

  1. In the dashboard menu, click Cards, and then click Corporate Cards.

  2. Find your card, click the horizontal three-dot menu on the right, and select Delete card.

In the mobile app

  1. On the Cards screen, tap Corporate Cards (at the top of the screen).

  2. With your card selected, tap Delete Card.
