Our Private Bank Account gives you all the benefits of a credit card with full transactional functionality - in one account. And now, in collaboration with OfferZen, you have access to Programmable Banking, giving you full access to your transactions and the ability to customise your card spend limits.
By launching Programmable Banking, we aim to create opportunities for IT professionals and software developers to solve problems and unlock new possibilities by revolutionising businesses, empowering consumers, and uplifting economies.
Write your own rules
You can limit your fast-food spend, track your coffee intake on the fly or mitigate your company’s risk by limiting the merchants where your card will work.
Full access to your card transactions
Track spending behaviour in real-time by posting your card transaction data to external sources.
Set up custom budgeting and notifications
Integrate and build push notifications, SMS or emails for a fully customised experience.
Limit spending on products
Control where and when your card can be used and set spend limits based on the transaction type.
