    What are the rewards on the Stripe Corporate Card?

    You’ll earn unlimited 2% cash back on your top two spending categories in any given statement cycle. On everything else, you’ll earn unlimited 1% cash back. Plus, you’ll get $50K of free processing on Stripe after your first $5K of spend on the Stripe Corporate Card. We have additional cash back and other offers with a number of partners. We’ll automatically apply your cash back in the form of a credit on your monthly statement, ensuring that your cash back rewards never go to waste.

    What categories can I earn 2% cash back on?

    You can earn unlimited 2% cash back on your top two categories of spend, whatever they may be. Frequent top categories from our beta users include software, airlines, hotels, restaurants, ground transportation, and more! We determine the category of a particular purchase by the category code assigned to the merchant by its bank or processor. Similar category codes are grouped together to ensure that you get 2% where it matters most. For example, eating places, fast food restaurants, bakeries, and drinking places are all grouped into a single “Restaurants” category. For additional details, see category groupings and the Stripe Rewards Program Agreement.

    How can I redeem my cash back rewards?

    You’ll earn 1% cash back for all spend, which immediately appears in your Pending Rewards balance. Your pending rewards balance moves to your Available Rewards balance when your billing cycle closes.

    You’ll earn 2% cash back for your top two categories of spend and any bonus cash back earned on eligible purchases with our partners (e.g., Digital Ocean and Notion) in your Available Rewards balance after your billing cycle closes.

    We’ll automatically apply your Available Rewards balance as a credit on your statement each month. You can turn off automatic credits and choose when to apply your Available Rewards balance as a credit for a future statement by updating your settings.

    How do I earn $50K in free payment processing?

    After you spend your first $5K on the Stripe Corporate Card and pay your statement balance for those purchases, we waive the fees for up to $50k of future card payments processed on your account through Stripe. This fee waiver is only available to you for one year from the date that you accept your waived fee benefit in the Stripe Dashboard. If you process less than $50K in card payments through Stripe within the one-year period, your waived fee benefit will not carry over. Additionally, the fee waiver only applies to fees for card processing. The fee waiver does not apply to disputes, reversals, or fines assessed to your Stripe account, or fees for non-card processing

    How does Stripe help with receipt tracking?

    From your settings, you can set the threshold dollar amount that your company requires receipts for (by default, it’s set to 75 USD). We’ll then send text messages to any cardholders who have a transaction over that amount, reminding them to submit their receipts. Cardholders can attach receipts to transactions in one of three ways, and we’ll automatically reconcile receipts to the correct transaction:

    • Upload using the Stripe Dashboard
    • Reply to one of our reminder texts with a photo
    • Forward an email receipt to expenses@stripe.com from the email associated with your Stripe account

    What accounting and expensing integrations does the Stripe Corporate Card have?

    Am I protected from fraudulent transactions?

    Your business is protected from responsibility for fraudulent transactions with the Stripe Corporate Card. At anytime, your cardholders can report a card as lost or stolen in the Stripe Dashboard and dispute any fraudulent transactions that have posted. Any cards reported as lost or stolen will be frozen immediately, and after the dispute process is complete, your account will be credited for any disputed transactions determined to be fraudulent.

    What’s the difference between Stripe Issuing and Stripe Corporate Card?

    Stripe Corporate Card enables your company to receive corporate credit cards to pay for business expenses. Your business can instantly provision cards, manage your company's spending in real-time and get cash back on your purchases.

    Stripe Issuing is the underlying infrastructure upon which businesses can issue and manage their own payment cards. Issuing can support a variety of commercial use cases.
