CardValet can report or restrict PIN and signature transactions preformed by debit cards, enabling you to manage, track, and report specific types of transactions and quickly detect unauthorized activity. You can customize your experience by choosing from a variety of options. Transactions can be monitored or controlled for specific merchant categories such as gas, hotel, travel, restaurants and groceries.
CardValet gives you the capability to turn your card “off” and “on”. When the card is “on,” transactions are allowed in accordance with your usage setting. When the card is “off,” all transactions except recurring payments will be denied until the card is subsequently turned back “on.” This control can be used to disable a lost or stolen card.
Alerts can be set up to inform you of specific types of transactions. CardValet can send an alert when a card is used, when a transaction is approved and exceeds any of the permitted use policies, or when a card transaction has been attempted but is declined. The alert is sent in real time, immediately after the transaction has taken place or has been declined.
