ePay Virtual

Next generation business purchasing solution

Our ePay Virtual payment solution provides enhanced levels of control on your employees’ online and card-not-present business spend. It also increases the control and visibility over their purchasing and travel spend, while improving data capture and reconciliation.

ePay Virtual generates a unique card number only when it is needed for a purchase, with controls set on its credit limit, spend validity dates and end merchant. The virtual card will only be generated once approved by a permitted manager.

How ePay Virtual could benefit you

ePay Virtual: How it works

  • ePay Virtual generates a unique 16-digit virtual card number, with associated CVC and validity date, for card-not-present transactions.
  • New unique virtual card numbers are raised for each transaction, supplier or invoice batch as required.

Business benefits

  • Enhanced security of online and card-not-present spend.
  • Greater spend control through predefined rules on what the virtual card can be used for and for how much.
  • Improved data and spend visibility to help develop and negotiate improved prices with a preferred supplier list.
  • Tailored reports integrated with your existing accounting and expense management software systems.
  • Quicker and simpler reconciliation processes for invoice and payments.
  • Available in Sterling, Euro and US Dollar denominations to minimise conversion costs when transacting in those currencies.

    Also ensures transactions undertaken in those currencies are not subject to currency fluctuations.

    To take advantage of these options a Bank of Scotland Current account is required in the relevant currency.

Colleague benefits
