Benefits of Bendigo Bank Business Credit Mastercard

  • Low purchase rate. If you don’t plan to pay the account’s balance in full each month, you can benefit from this card’s low variable rate of 13.99% p.a.
  • Increased financial control. In addition to being able to assign individual credit limits, you have the ability to grant ATM access to particular cardholders. You get consolidated statements that detail all transactions, and you also get itemised addendums for every cardholder. Uploading transactional details to accounting software like MYOB is also easy.
  • Flexible liability arrangements. Business with company structures can opt for company liability, where Bendigo Bank assesses the business for the credit facility, and the business accepts liability for all transactions. Individual liability is for employees of businesses and sole traders, where Bendigo Bank assesses the individuals in question and they accept liability for all transactions they make using their individual cards. Joint and several liability comes into play with partnerships, where all partners have to accept joint and several liability for all transactions.
  • Personalise your card. This service gives you the ability to promote your card every time a cardholder uses it, and apart from the embossed name of your business, you can get your card to carry your business logo or any other image that represents it best.
  • Card Security. You can download the free Bendigo Bank Protect+Pay app, which allows you to temporarily block your card if you’ve misplaced it, block specific types of transactions, update your PIN, check your balance, report a lost or stolen card, or cancel the card from your mobile.
