What are the benefits of virtual cards?
Need to stick to a budget? Let’s say you’re making home improvements. Set money aside in a ‘DIY’ Space, and use your virtual card every time you buy materials.
One look at your Space shows what you’ve spent, and what’s left. When the money in your Space is used up, your virtual card will decline (until you top the Space up) instead of dipping into your main balance.
It’s ideal for holidays, retail therapy, a night out or, well, anything you can think of really.

Buying from a website you’ve not used before, or making a payment over the phone? Use a virtual card - the details are only linked to the money in your Space, and not your main balance. Just in case.
You can also delete or lock your virtual card once it’s been used - even more reassurance your money is safe. Remember, your money is guaranteed up to £85,000 by the FSCS, and that includes money in a Saving Space.
Better subscriptions management.
Use Bills Manager to pay Direct Debits and standing orders from a Space. Add a virtual card to your Bills Space to pay subscriptions - such as Netflix and Amazon Prime - from your Bills Space too.
All you’ll need to do is update your card details with the merchant.
Paying subscriptions from a Space helps you spot price fluctuations more easily too - since the payments aren’t buried in your main transactions feed.
