Pleo Update: March 2019 Product Announcements

As we’re welcoming April (and spring) with open arms, here’s a roundup of what we shipped in March and a sneak peek into what’s coming soon.

See available funds and wallet balance

Since December of last year, employees have been able to see their available funds right from the expense view in the mobile app.

This was built with the aim of increasing transparency, removing the guesswork and ultimately reducing declined transactions due to insufficient funds.

While this has shown some promise and undoubtedly made the spending experience better for users, there was one particular case that was causing confusion for some.

Even if a user’s company’s balance was lower than their individual available funds, they would only see the latter on their expense view. Thus, seemingly inexplicable declined transactions due to insufficient funds occurred from time to time.

With the latest update, employees are able to see their company’s balance on their mobile and web expense view only if it is lower than their available funds.

We hope this will finally put an end to insufficient funds declines! You can read more here.

3D Secure payments are here!

The Pleo cards are part of the Mastercard network, which means they are accepted in over 30 million locations worldwide – in-store or online.

That being said, there have been online stores in the past that didn’t accept Pleo cards because we didn’t support 3D Secure payments, which in short is an added layer of security and fraud prevention used by some online merchants.

However, after tireless work from our Compliance, Fraud, Product and Customer Success teams, we’re thrilled to announce that we now support 3D Secure payments, and the feature should be live by the end of week 14!

This means fewer transaction declines and increased security for our users. Read more here.
