For business-critical expenses, Airbase will monitor the charges more closely and send a warning to the card owner and Admins if a charge does not come in the expected time.
To set a recurring expense as Business Critical:
- Find the card in Virtual Cards > Recurring Expenses.
- Select Edit Information on the Virtual Card details page.
- Select Business Critical.
- Click Save.
Examples of some vendors that our customers mark as Business Critical are:
- Amazon Web Services
- Google Analytics
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.
To set a Recurring Virtual Card as Business Critical, the Spend Owner needs Manage Card Spend Controls User Permission enabled for their user role.
