Airbase will monitor the charges of Recurring Virtual Cards marked as Business Critical more closely. If the card is not charged at the expected time, Airbase will alert the Card Owner and Airbase Admins.
Examples of some vendors that our customers mark as Business Critical are:
- Amazon Web Services
- Google Analytics
To set a Recurring Virtual Card as Business Critical, the Spend Owner needs Manage Card Spend Controls User Permission enabled for their user role.
To set a recurring expense as Business Critical:
- Find the card on the Virtual Cards > Recurring Expenses page.
- Click Edit Information on the Virtual Card details page.
- Check the Business Critical option to Yes.
- Click Save.
Even if a service is marked as Business Critical, the charge will not be processed if it's above the Spend Limit.
It only lets Airbase know that a notification has to be sent to the Card Owner and Admins when a charge is declined to allow them to take immediate action.
