For non-recurring payments, most of our customers find it useful to create a thematic application with an associated card.
This is because when every payment falls into the correct team and application, you will have:
- a designated card created specifically for the vendor or purpose
- better visibility on your spending
- more control over your budget
Say you have several one-off payments to make for an upcoming event. You might want to create a separate application to group together all your expenses on ads, event management and design tools that you use just for this particular project.
This way, you will be able to set the budget limit, team, and tags like you would for regular subscriptions, and the payments will be reflected correctly in the Spend breakdown analytics.
You can also create supplementary cards for various users to make sure the total spending on this event does not exceed your fixed budget.
Once the event is over, you can disable the application and cards, or even delete them permanently and move on to your next project.
Optimise your settings
For multiple payments between top-ups, remember to disable the automatic flush so that you have money on the card after the first payment.
Also, depending on how much funds you want to commit on the card, tweak the budget amount and top-up frequency to maximise your available balance.
