Have you asked yourself what is tokenization and how a tokenized card can be used for B2B purchases?

These are just some of the questions that we’ve discussed with our special guest Clive Cornelius, Head of Travel at Visa Europe in Virtual Cards Explained. Together with him, we did a deep dive into the world of payments and discussed different trends and use cases.
Businesses use virtual cards mainly to:
- manage online subscriptions,
- control advertising spend and
- as a payment method for procurement teams.
- the ease of issuing,
- having access to company funds remotely and
- the transparency of all transactions
make this payment method an essential tool for companies of all size. They can be used in all departments, but are particularly useful for Marketing.
On top, virtual cards are a pretty secure payment method for businesses – not a very well known fact. One of the reasons herefor is that it’s harder to get stolen like its physical equivalent.
