YouBiz: How SME Businesses Can Use This Corporate Card To Improve Their Business Transactions

Running a small business isn’t easy. For first-time business owners and freelancers, the transition to managing business accounts, invoices and transactions may be more daunting than expected. Aside from business bank accounts, SME businesses can also tap on corporate cards, such as YouBiz, to facilitate their business transactions.

YouBiz is a SME corporate card developed by the same people at YouTrip, the multi-currency mobile wallet (with a pre-paid Mastercard) that allows consumers to pay in over 150 currencies when shopping online or travelling abroad, without incurring currency conversion fees. Similar to the YouTrip card, the YouBiz card allows businesses to enjoy 0% FX fees and make seamless bill payments with a free multi-currency account.

SMEs Can Earn 1% Cashback

For freelancers, the switch from personal accounts to business accounts may be most jarring when it comes to corporate cards. While there are plenty of cashback options for personal credit cards, it is hard to find a business account that offers cashback rewards for spending.

However, YouBiz changes this by offering an unlimited 1% cashback on all card spend with no cap. In fact, this card may be more powerful than many personal credit cards because of the lack of hurdles in obtaining the cashback. There is no minimum spend requirement, or cap in the maximum cashback you can earn. Similar to other cashback cards, there are transaction exclusions such as bank or payment wallet, bill payments, brokerages, etc

The unlimited cashback is calculated on a monthly basis for each calendar month and will be credited to your YouBiz account on or before the 15th of the following month.

For SMEs, this may be one of the best savings (1%) you can easily apply to your business expenses.
