Why people choose DiviPay’s corporate cards over American Express

Issue corporate cards in seconds not weeks

It takes lots of paperwork, credit checks and personal guarantees to issue a single American Express corporate card. With DiviPay you can issue virtual corporate cards in seconds. All with just a click of a button.

Issue unlimited corporate cards

Unless you’re an large corporation, American Express will only let you issue up to 99 cards. With DiviPay you can issue as many cards as you need, which means that you’ll never need to process a reimbursement or chase a card around the office again.

Set corporate card limits and review spending in real-time

When your American Express corporate card limits are running low it can take hours to request an increase. With DiviPay you can update card limits whenever you need in real-time.

Collect receipts, categories, and business codes and save hours.

Managing expenses requires more than just a card. Which is why businesses that use American Express also need to buy expense management software. Whereas DiviPay combines cards with automated expense reporting, saving you hours of expense admin.

Andrew Haynes DiviPay testimonialPattern background

Having corporate cards issued to team members was such a long & tiresome process before... not to mention the number of paper forms we had to fill out.... and trying to track down the signatories is nearly impossible when you are working with a remote & distributed team. Divipay has turned what was a real pain... into a great experience. Keep up the good work Divipay!
