Always load a little more money

Spendesk cards are preloaded thus suppliers can only charge what's loaded on the card (no overdraft). We automatically add €/$/£2 to cover extra fees. Still, you should always round the requested amount up to the nearest euro/dollar/pound. The remaining funds go back to your Wallet as soon as the payment is settled.

Approval needed for recurring payments cards

Recurring payments cards are valid for 4 years and you can make multiple payments within your monthly budget. As a consequence, recurring payments cards requests are always subject to approval, whatever your individual spending policy is.

Can I set up quarterly or yearly budget for my subscriptions card?

Unfortunately no. At the moment, we only offer monthly budget. If you have a quarterly or yearly subscription to pay, you can still set up a recurring payments card and pause it between two payments.
