Global Fintech SUNRATE Partners with Visa to Offer Virtual Corporate Cards

Sunrate | January 05, 2023

As a part of its online travel service, the fintech company SUNRATE has teamed with Visa to offer virtual corporate cards. With the introduction of virtual corporate cards, SUNRATE's travel stakeholders now have a more streamlined and effective method of making payments to their partners, like airlines and hotels. In addition, close to the end of last year, SUNRATE also shared news of a strategic alliance with Agoda, a global digital travel platform. SUNRATE believes that virtual corporate cards are revolutionizing travel payments. Online travel agencies can set expenditure restrictions, specify usage, and designate vendors using virtual cards. The travel partners of SUNRATE are in charge of allocating and keeping track of expenses. Besides, security is a crucial component of the virtual card. By allowing for a constrained window of use for a single card, technology such as application programming interfaces (APIs) has reduced the risk of card information being misused when presented. SUNRATE said that the company's decision to offer Visa virtual corporate cards is a significant step because it strengthens its position as a one-stop B2B payment partner, especially in the travel industry. After announcing its partnership with Agoda, SUNRATE has worked with many other players in the travel industry, including other OTAs, and is proud of being able to meet all business needs. Visa Business Solutions stated that the partnership's timing is excellent, considering the global rebound of business and leisure travel. Visa supports fintech companies like SUNRATE in their efforts to develop innovative solutions that make it easier for businesses to control their expenditure and make secure and seamless business-to-business payments. About SUNRATE SUNRATE is a global company payment and treasury platform. It is licensed and regulated as a major payment institution by the UK's Financial Conduct Authority, Indonesia's Bank Indonesia, Hong Kong Customs, and Singapore's Monetary Authority. Since 2016, its cutting-edge proprietary platform, vast global network, and robust APIs have helped over 130 firms scale local and worldwide growth.
