Virtual Cards
Credit or debit cards, linked to your Collective's balance
Virtual Cards can be issued to hosted Collectives for paying recurring payments, bills, online resources and tools, subscriptions, vendors (e.g. hosting providers), etc.

How it works

  • Funds are spent only as transactions occur. - Setting up a card does not remove any money from your Collective's budget.
  • Submit a virtual card request (click 'Actions' > 'request virtual card on your Collective's page) with the intended use of the card and the amount budgeted for that monthly. The virtual card with that limit will be set up for your collective.
  • If, at any point, your collective needs a higher limit on your virtual card, please request a limit increase by contacting us at [email protected] with the intended use and the amount increase needed.
  • Cards must be used in compliance with our policy below.

Requirements / Policy:

  • Collectives must have a minimum of 2 admin members
  • These are virtual cards. No physical card will be issued, so these cannot be used in-store.
  • Receipts must be submitted within 30 days. If a receipt is not submitted within 30 days, the card access will be paused until you do submit the receipt
    • The card's Assignee is responsible for collecting and uploading the receipts.
  • All transactions should comply with normal usage of Collective funds as outlined in our Terms of Fiscal Sponsorship
