Paying for gifts is a prime example of what Qonto's Instant Card can do that no other disposable payment card can. You can either:
- set a predetermined budget for a gift that will be chosen later on (in the same way you buy gift vouchers to be used in certain shops or on Amazon, for example);
- or you identify the gift in advance and set that price as the limit on the Instant Card card.
Either way, you make life easy for the card user, whether the purchase is online or in-store.
Instant Cards are far more flexible than gift vouchers as they are payment cards that are accepted anywhere and not just in one particular shop or e-commerce site. There is, as they say, no accounting for taste, and the beneficiary of the card will no doubt appreciate being able to buy whatever takes their fancy (within the budget you set).
You can even cater for those people who like small treats on a regular basis rather than bigger, one-off gifts. Just set your Instant Card's life span at 3 or 6 months (in fact, the period of validity is entirely up to you within a 12-month maximum) and let the lucky user dip in and out of that budget at their leisure. After all, who doesn't like a gift that keeps on giving? You can learn more about our Instant Card services, which are unique in France, right here.
So, all of this goes to show what 'burner' cards (including Instant Cards) can do in terms of making expense management that little bit easier. They're simple, supple and secure.
With Qonto's Instant Cards, you get an added layer of flexibility. You can customize them however you see fit: for one or several purchases, to be made on one day or over the course of a year. Once you've set up the card, you can stop thinking about it. Forget about expense reports and paper receipts. Simply let the Instant Card do its job and then self-destruct once its mission has been accomplished.
Your expense is managed before it is even created.
