How to issue a card?

Team member account

Card Wizard from Spendge is a new tool that allows you to easily issue cards that are perfect for paying for advertising.

Card Wizard features

  • Easily select bins, currency, card type (Visa/Mastercard), and 3DS functionality.

  • Transparent view of merchants for payment and recommended geographic locations to specify in accounts of services.

How to issue cards

Go to the Cards, and click New Card.

For a team member to issue cards, the Team Administrator needs in the Team > Edit Profile tab to select Card Issue > Enable and specify the number of cards the team member can issue.

  1. Select the BINs that match your preferences. The BIN is the first 6 digits of the card. Next to the BIN number is the currency in which the card will be issued.

    You can filter BINs by preferred merchants, geo for accounts, and 3DS availability for a more accurate choice. When filtering, Spendge's recommendations are provided in the Recommended section, but you can also experiment with different combinations to find the best fit.

Important: EUR cards can only be topped up with User Account EUR. GBP from User Account GBP.

  1. Select Balance type:

    • Card - when paying, money is debited directly from the card balance. You transfer the required amount to the card. An amount greater than the balance on the card cannot be spent from the card.

    • User Account - money is debited from the Card Account when paying. The card does not require additional replenishment, you only replenish the Account.

  2. Fill in the number of cards and the balance you want on them (with the Card balance type).

  3. Fill in the Description field to personalize the card. You can enter any text in this field.

For example, you can give any name to cards for advertising companies or payments, Facebook, Google Ads, and TikTok.

Click Create.

Important! Once issued, you cannot change the card's BIN.

Change the Balance Type in Actions > Update Card.

Card Data
