for managing cash flow
Pay Over Time Option The Pay Over Time option on the Card lets you carry a balance with interest on purchases of $100 or more.
How it works:
Purchases of $100 or more are eligible to be paid over time, up to the amount of your Pay Over Time limit on your account. You can choose to pay for these purchases over time with interest, or you can pay your full balance, whichever is best for your business. All purchases under $100 are due in full each month.
No Pre-Set Spending Limit The Business Gold Card has no pre-set spending limit, which gives you purchasing power that adjusts with your use of the Card and other factors.
No preset spending limit does not mean unlimited spending. Purchasing power adjusts with your use of the Card, your payment history, credit record and financial resources known to us, and other factors.
