With Pleo, you can have one virtual card and one physical card assigned per user. Here is a guide on how they work.


A Pleo virtual card works just like any other payment card, but it is only accessible electronically. You can use your virtual card for online purchases. If you'd like to use if for in-store purchases, you can do so by adding it to Apple Pay or Google Pay through the Pleo mobile app. Unlock your virtual card from the My cards menu.

Pleo physical cards can be used for company related in-store purchases, as well as online payments. They work just like all other payment cards, and can be used contactless or with chip&PIN.

When you receive your physical card, you can pair the card by going to the My cards menu. If you don't have a physical card, the Pleo admin at your company can order one for you.
