Single-Use Accounts

Single-Use Accounts (SUA) is a versatile electronic payment tool that eliminates the need for a physical card. It's an ideal solution for large transactions that you'd traditionally pay with a paper check. Unlike other commercial card products, SUA allows you to customize a single electronic card for each of your payments. It provides a 16-digit virtual account for each payment and lets you set the credit limit to the specific payment amount and the valid date range.

This one-to-one match of card accounts to payments gives you powerful security and antifraud control over your payment processing while automating transaction matching and reconciliation.

  • Increased visibility: Capture better data and run customized reports.
  • Fraud reduction: Eliminate the risks associated with paper checks.

In Our Client's Words

"Single-Use Accounts have helped us to quickly identify duplicate payment requests and reduce the time and cost associated with reconciliation. Plus, accounting tasks that used to require days or even weeks to complete can now be done in a matter of hours. This has resulted in a 1.5 full-time employee (FTE) reduction in personnel and reduced financial liabilities for the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) due to Single-Use Accounts' quick reconciliation features."
