Vendor Cards are a type of virtual card created by administrators and budget owners. These virtual cards are a great way to manage one time or recurring expenses with vendors by assigning a specific card and amount to a specific vendor or merchant.

Some things to keep in mind:

  • Vendor cards can be created on both the web and the mobile application.
  • Admins and budget owners can create vendor cards for any role in Divvy (owners, members, or admins).
  • Vendor cards must be assigned to a single cardholder.

Creating vendor cards on the web:

There are two ways to create vendor cards on the web. 1) from Budgets, under Spend Limits. And 2) on the Cards page.

To create vendor cards from the Budget tab:

1. Log into Divvy from the web.

2. Click on the Budgets tab.

3. Select the budget you would like to create a vendor card for.

4. Click on Spend limits.

5. Then click on Create vendor card.

6. Give the vendor card a card name (i.e. a nickname to quickly identify what the card is used for). The active budget will be automatically entered.

7. Under Card funding, select the type:

  • Subscription Card is a type of virtual card that you can create with a monthly recurring limit. When you set a limit for the card, it will allocate funds directly from the associated budget.
  • Burner Cards are designed for one time purchases made online. This type of virtual card expires in 7 days from the creation date of the card. However, you can extend the expiration if needed. You can also change the amount of funds on this card as needed.

8. Set a Monthly card limit based on the funds available in the selected budget.

9. Assign a cardholder who can see and manage this card number in Divvy.

The cardholder assigned to the vendor card cannot be changed later.

10. If applicable, pre-fill the field options that need to be completed on vendor card transactions.

11. Once all information has been entered, click Create Card to create your new vendor virtual card.

Vendor cards can also be created by navigating to Cards in the global navigation and clicking Create New Card. If vendor cards are created using this method, an active budget will need to be selected. Follow steps 5-10 above for creating vendor cards from the Cards screen.

The only person who can see the full card numbers for this new vendor card will be the assigned cardholder. Admins and budget owners can view the last four of the card number to keep track of spending on that card but the rest of the card number will not be visible to them.

Creating vendor cards on mobile:

You can also create vendor cards on mobile:

1. Log in to the Divvy mobile app and select Budgets from the bottom menu.

2. Then press Spend limits.

3. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click +Add next to Cards.

4. Input required information before pressing Save.

The only person who can see the full card numbers for this new vendor card will be the assigned cardholder. Admins and budget owners can view the last four of the card number to keep track of spending on that card but the rest of the card number will not be visible to them.
