Emburse virtual cards can be accepted as any other card payment.

Exact value at the exact time

Cards are only active when orders arrive for the exact amount of the order. Merchant restrictions are also available.

Virtual or physical cards

Cards do not need to be assigned to specific individuals – Emburse supports “non-bearer” cards such as “Driver 321”.

Card Issuance

Cards may be batch-ordered ahead of time and programatically assigned via email.


The first card platform with app integrations.

Integrated Purchase Order Flow

Slack users will soon be able to ping @emburse to request a new card for a specific amount. When an administrator approves, a virtual card is created instantaneously and shared via Slack.

Seamless Reconciliation

Users can also upload receipts, request balance updates, and categorize transactions.
