The Features

Simplified accounting

Save days spent on manual work by AP and accounting teams. Zip’s vendor cards collect coding and vendor information from intake, so all transactions are automatically coded and reviewed before they get to finance.

Flexible controls

Issue vendor cards with confidence. Zip gives you full control over purchase spend limit, merchant category, and time active. Easily freeze and unfreeze cards or transfer ownership when cardholders move roles.

One-click vendor cards

Instant payment setup — just push a button and go. Zip generates vendor cards off of approved purchase requests, so you can create a card for use immediately while maintaining detailed audit trails.

Robust ERP integration

Keep your records as clean as your payment process. Zip’s pre-built integrations sync completed transactions to your ERP, including multi-subsidiary support to simplify inter-company transfers.

"Our employees have adopted Zip vendor cards so easily. That's where we've had the largest wins — because if our employees didn't adopt it, then we would be back to doing the whole payment approval process manually."
