The Virtual Card for Commercial Clients

Salt Lake City, Utah //

Virtual card demand and use continue to expand, and recent research shows that virtual cards are one of the fastest-growing payments products, with more than 20 percent growth per year and $132 billion spent on virtual cards in 2017. It is timely, then, that Galileo Processing Inc. has launched its virtual commercial card solution, which facilitates e-commerce, in-store payments, accounts payable and expense management for companies across various industries.

“Galileo’s virtual cards are beneficial for many payment environments where using plastic cards is time-consuming and inconvenient,” said Clay Wilkes, Galileo’s CEO. “Our virtual cards streamline payments operations, help reduce errors and fraud and generate new revenue through interchange on every transaction.”

The card is a randomly generated, single-use token that handles a single transaction in a specific amount. The payment is processed through a card network and may be issued on Galileo’s credit, debit or prepaid platforms. Galileo claims the card enhances security and reconciliation, cuts the cost and time required to process checks, and eliminates the setup and information-sharing required for ACH payments.
