To manage your payment transactions with ease and comfort, having a corporate credit card for your business is the best option.
A credit card is a payment card issued to a certain cardholder or individual as a means of payment channel. It enables the cardholder to purchase goods and other services on the guarantee that he/she will pay for them.
A bank, which is the authorized entity to issue the card, grants a credit line to the cardholder. This line will allow the user to borrow money for payment to the retailer/provider that will serve as a cash advance.
