Deep Dive: The Expensify Card

What is the Expensify Card? 

The Expensify Card is the world’s smartest corporate card in town, thanks to market-first daily settlement, unapproved expense limits, and realtime compliance features that enable the highest spend within the safest limits.  

How is the Expensify Card different from other card programs? 

  • Ultra-smooth employee experience: When employees swipe the card, the app reminds them to SmartScan the corresponding receipt and take care of any coding. With just a tap, the expense can be coded and submitted before the employee even leaves the table. 
  • Maximized eReceipt Coverage: Just swipe the Expensify Card, and the transactions will appear instantly in your Expensify app along with full IRS-ready digital eReceipts for all but the largest of purchases.
  • Realtime compliance: Capturing expenses in realtime is only part of the picture!  Scheduled Submit, Concierge DoubleCheck, and automatic approval features mean that expenses are submitted on time and within the rules of your tightly enforced expense policy. 
  • Automatic daily settlement: The Expensify Card balance is paid in full each day, automatically from your business bank account. No need to remember to pay off the card or worry about getting a supersized bill at the end of the month.
  • No additional fees and no interest: That’s right, the Expensify Card comes completely free with your Expensify account, with no fees, no interest, and no commitment.
  • Perks included at no cost: Expensify cardholders get special access to our industry-leading partners’ discounts and perks when they sign up using the Expensify Card.

    Hello,   I'm really interested in this credit card for the non profit I serve.  How do you deal with fraud on credit cards with a daily settlement.  For example, our offices were closed on Black Friday and fraudulent purchase were made on one users card.  They didn't call the bank until Wednesday the week after Thanksgiving and the credit card company alerted them.  We wouldn't have noticed that until that until the user went to do his credit card report.  Do you offer similar alerts?   Also, we ask employees to settle their last 30 days of purchases to tie to the credit card statement. Since its all integrated with the accounting software, what have you seen large non profits do in asking people when to do their expense reports?  Do they now just use the unapproved expense feature to determine when people should reconcile?  Thanks so much!

    Hi Tim!

    Thanks for your interest. I am going through your questions one by one:

    How do you deal with fraud on credit cards with a daily settlement? Do you offer alerts for suspected fraudulent transactions?

    1. A user receives real-time notifications on their expenditure which would mean they are immediately alerted if there are transactions they do not recognise. 
    2. We offer 24/7 charge cancellations via Interactive Voice Response.
    3. Users can also dispute charges via our Concierge platform.
    4. We offer immediate credit return upon investigation on disputes.

    Regarding your unapproved expenses limits when using the card:
    Your assign unapproved expense limits should be assigned with what's in line with policy for general cash expenses.

    Regarding your question about when people should reconcile:
    I need a little more context as to what you mean here. Are employees responsible for reconciling their own credit cards at present? When you say 'when' people should reconcile, what exactly do you mean?

    Looking forward to hearing back from you!

    Our company is expanding internationally, is the card a good option for employees who do not have an US bank account?

    @TSachs @ScotMosley There is a more appropriate thread for this here. I think it'd be a good idea to add your comments there as well so they are all in one section for everybody to see.

    Echoing the above sentiments, but adding another one: your support on this product is atrocious. I've been trying to get help with an issue regarding all transactions being declined, but for two days I haven't even gotten an acknowledgement that they're investigating it.

    We need a way to stop the notifications to all of our users! We do not plan to use the Expensify Card. We do not even reimburse through Expensify. Yet, I am getting inundated daily with the email below. Then having to explain that we don't use the Expensify Card. 

    I'd like to use the Expensify Card to manage my work expenses. It will remind me to scan receipts when needed and so much more!

    Hi @SashaWilliams1, I am an Expensify employee based in New Zealand, and I use the Expensify card. As long as your bank account is within the US, you can have the cards shipped to those internationally. NB: The transactions will all be in USD.

    Hi @Grenouille, @BenDH, @WooHooWu, @TSachs, @ScotMosley, and @Kimberli — thank you all for taking the time to reach out on this! 

    I want to clarify -- we don't have the ability to disable the Expensify Card Inbox task right now, but I will make sure your voice is heard by the product team. In case it’s helpful, this Community post has more details on the update and why we made this change.

    If you all have any other questions, please let us know.

  • Cortney OfstadCortney Ofstad Posts: 57Expensify Success Coach - Admin Expensify Team
    Hi @avm5689 — sorry to hear this! I checked our system and it shows that our Success Team has been in contact with you recently, but if you have any other questions or need anything else, please let us know.

    Thanks for taking the time to reach out!
  • KimberliKimberli Posts: 4Expensify Customer Expensify Newcomer
    Understanding "why" you made this update does not stop the emails that I am getting requesting a card. What an insanely poor decision to try to sell us something through our users. The announcements in their inboxes are misleading. I've had every person in our senior staff contact me to make the announcements stop. Please fix this mess! 
  • WooHooWuWooHooWu Posts: 13Expensify Customer Expensify Newcomer
    I think everyone who is complaining about the tasks, emails, notifications, etc has had their senior staff contact them correctly?

    Hi everyone,

    If you're interested in casting your vote on the suggestion to include the ability to turn off notifications/and or features for the Expensify Card, you can do so here.

    How do you turn off these horrible soliciations for credit card and invasion of privacy of our employees and complete disrespect to the company's wishes, rules and policies! This is ridiculous. We do not want you card pushed into our employes faces. These people don't even have a live person to talk to. Absolute junk!

  • gschwarzergschwarzer Posts: 3Expensify Customer Expensify Newcomer

    I'll put this on as many threads as possible until it stops QUICKLY or we opt out of our contract.

    I am President of our company and have decision making power on technology we use.

    STOP sending emails to my employees that they cannot opt out of and promoting your card in the app. If not, attrition is coming your way quickly.

    This is NOT OK.

  • Expensify_Admin_NYExpensify_Admin_NY Posts: 1Expensify Customer

    I agree with the others posting here. Stop these unsolicited advertisements of your Expensify Corporate Cards! I am the admin for Expensify at my company. Our company is not interested in your card, so our employees cannot and will not sign up for it. It is causing nothing but confusion and more work for our employees. STOP THE ADVERTISING..TAKE IT OFF THE LOGIN AND HOMEPAGE OF THE PRODUCT!!!
