Watch this one minute video to learn how Emburse Cards works.
A verifiable business and business banking information are required to use Emburse Cards. This information includes a legal business name, Employer Identification Number (EIN), physical company address, and a legal status of Inc., LLC, and/or Partnerships.
Only companies incorporated within the U.S. may register for an Emburse account. In addition, the primary account owner must be a resident of the United States with a Social Security number and a verifiable physical U.S. street address (no P.O. Boxes). We do not offer Emburse accounts to residents of Puerto Rico, Guam, the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and other U.S. territories.
Once your account is created, Emburse will verify this information. The verification process can take several days to complete.
Federal regulations require Emburse, on behalf of our card processor and bank partner, to collect, verify, and record information about the key person(s) who own or control the legal entity of your business. The disclosure of this information helps FinCEN, a bureau of the United States Department of the Treasury, and law enforcement fight financial crimes.
The identity of one individual with significant managerial control must be verified in order to create cards and fund the account. Verification is done using name, personal address, Social Security or tax ID number, and date of birth. No correspondence is sent to the individual's personal address. This information is only used to verify the individual's identity.
All that is required for any Emburse cardholder or non-administrator is a name and email. A phone number can also be added to receive instant notifications for receipt capture after a transaction is completed.
Emburse Cards offers a free 30-day trial. After the trial, pricing is based on the number of active cardholders each month. Emburse charges $15/month for each active cardholder (minimum of 3 users). You're allowed an unlimited amount of users per Business Account and each cardholder may be assigned multiple cards at no additional cost. More pricing details here.
If an Authorized User makes a purchase using a Card in a currency other than in U.S. dollars, the amount deducted from the available funds in the Card Account will be converted by MasterCard into U.S. dollars. Please refer to the Emburse Card Program Agreement for additional information.
Emburse Cards can be used anywhere VISA/MasterCard is accepted. Banks reserve the right to limit or block the use of the Card in foreign countries due to fraud or security concerns or to comply with applicable law.
Emburse Cards may not be used at ATMs, for cashback transactions, online gambling, and other restricted activities.
