Make your business purchases easier with the Qred business card. The company card can be used everywhere. Whether you use it for purchases or to help employees avoid expenses, you'll always have the money you need.
And the best part? Everything goes on one single invoice that arrives once a month.
Save while you spend
With Qred's business card you save money on all your business purchases! Every time you use your business card - online or offline - you get 1% cashback. The cashback earned is deducted from your monthly invoice.
It's easy - if you've made a purchase of 10,000 SEK, you'll get an invoice for 9,900 SEK.
Unlimited possibilities, no costs
Buying what your business needs with the Qred business card only costs the price of the purchase itself. If you pay your entire invoice at once, there are no extra costs. If you choose to pay by instalment instead, there is an individually determined interest rate starting at 1.95% per month.
With our expense management, you get all your receipts digitally. Once you've bought something, all you have to do is take a picture of the receipt with your mobile. At the end of each month, you will receive a report with all your expenses. Great, huh?
The card is free of charge and has no monthly fee. Purchases have an average interest-free period of 45 days. Once a month you will receive an invoice with 14 days payment terms. You choose whether you want to pay the whole invoice at once (0% interest) or split it up (from 1.95% per month).
How do I manage an expense in the app?
After you have made a purchase with your Qred VISA, go to the last transaction in the app, click on the expense and select "Manage expense". You can then launch the camera on your mobile and take a picture of the receipt. Done!
Once you've taken a picture, enter the category that describes the type of purchase and the amount of VAT in SEK. At the end of each invoice period, you will receive a report of all transactions that have been processed.
Try Qred VISA for free now. You will receive the physical card within 5-7 working days, but you can start using the virtual card right away. You can also add your card to your mobile wallet and pay with your virtual card anywhere contactless payments are accepted.
Why did we create a business card for small businesses?
"Since we launched in 2015, we have helped more than 25,000 companies. Our goal is to constantly develop ourselves and our business to continue to strengthen our offering to help more businesses. Through the Visa membership, our product portfolio can be further broadened to fit our customers' everyday needs," says Emil Sunvisson, CEO of Qred."
The company card is a credit - if you want to use it!
The reason why it is so difficult for small businesses to get a business card with credit is that the traditional big banks do not want to give credit to small businesses. And our business card is a credit. It's as simple as that. The big banks want to make money from fees and not have to take risks. Unfortunately, risks are highest when companies are at their smallest or are just starting out. Therefore, the type of company can be a decisive factor.
Remember never to spend money that you are not sure you will have in the future, it is better to save.
Corporate cards are actually the first solution for BNPL - Buy Now, Pay Later
It is only in recent years that people have started talking about BNPL, but credit cards were actually the first solution for Buy Now, Pay Later. As early as 1914 in the United States, the first version of the credit card saw the light of day.

Why should I have a business card for my company?
Because it's already hard as it is to keep the private and the company apart. Expenses, posting, invoices and more dissolve the boundaries between work and your private finances.
It doesn't have to be that way.
With a business card, you get an overview of your expenses and can make those smaller investments to grow today - and pay later. A common example is a freelancer who is going to photograph or film a wedding and needs a certain piece of equipment. Instead of not being able to take the assignment, risk the result of the completed assignment or in the worst case rent the equipment, in this way you can buy the equipment and do what you do best - work.
The difference between Visa and Mastercard?
General differences between Visa and Mastercard are:
Mastercard has slightly better international coverage and is accepted by more merchants than Visa. Although this figure doesn't affect you as a business owner in Sweden, as virtually everyone who accepts card payments in Sweden accepts Visa.
Visa prohibits merchants from charging an additional fee for purchases made with a Visa card. This is common practice for American Express and Diners cards in Sweden, where some merchants have decided to charge an additional fee for purchases made with these cards.
Mastercard has a slightly better exchange rate than Visa. However, it is so marginal that it is more important for you as a cardholder to keep track of the currency surcharge that the card institution or bank imposes.
Visa also prohibits merchants from having a minimum amount for card purchases, which could affect kiosks, supermarkets and other businesses where you can buy cheap products.
In addition, Qred does not have an additional fee for purchases abroad.
What is the interest rate on the business card?
If your company pays the bill on time, there is no interest at all. However, if you are unable to pay on time, or choose to split the bill, you will start paying interest on that amount. That interest rate is company-specific and starts at 1.95%.
Business cards are usually used for smaller amounts, such as the purchase of small equipment like cameras, tools, office supplies, etc. Another common use is for recurring expenses that require a linked card. This can include digital services and tools, marketing costs for Facebook Ads or Google Ads.
Business loans are a common alternative and complement to business cards
If you don't make purchases related to your business very often, but still need smaller amounts to invest in things, a business loan can be a good option. At Qred, we offer business loans from 10 000 up to 2 million SEK.
It is also common to have a business card for everyday expenses and a loan to invest in inventory, marketing or to cover cash flow during a temporary downturn.
What are the benefits of a company card?
A business card can bring several benefits to your business and it works in the same way as a private credit card, but with a business card, the company is responsible for payment. The card can be designed as a regular credit card, a fuel card or as a debit card where the company has to deposit money to use it. Some companies choose to give each employee a company card, while other companies choose to have a card to share.
Why do you need a company card?
With the help of a business card, it will be easier for you as an entrepreneur to keep track of what expenses are private and which are the company's. With the help of a company card dedicated to only companies, you get a better overview and control over your expenses. In addition, it facilitates accounting and reduces administration.
Avoid unnecessary obstacles
Many struggle to find an effective way to manage their employees' outlays when using their private cards to buy something on behalf of the company.
This is because the transaction data remains with the employees until the expenses are reported. As a result, the company does not get an overview of what expenses are expected before the employee accounts are submitted. From the perspective of the employees, in this case they have to lie out with money waiting for compensation from the company. So there are several good reasons why the company should have a company card.
Even if you have no employees, it is still beneficial to use a company card. Then you can easily and conveniently distinguish your company's expenses from your private ones. With a company card, you do not have to spend time sorting receipts every month and keeping track of which expenses belong to the company or not.
It is common to receive a single invoice every month with all expenses. This simplifies administration very much, especially for the smaller companies that do most things themselves.

Despite this, many companies do not act
According to a report by Eurocard in collaboration with KTH (Royal Institute of Technology), about 68 percent of all Nordic companies currently use company cards for their employees who have expenses in the service. The number of companies with the most efficient expense management is slightly higher, namely around 80%.
Several positive factors
There are more positive aspects to having cards linked to your business. By having a company card, you can improve both security and control. With the help of an additional software, such as an app, you can instantly get an overview of your company's expenses. It makes life easier as an entrepreneur and it's the little things that make a difference.
If you or your employees are on a business trip, the card acts as a security. However much planning and structuring has been done in the form of booking hotels, flights, rental cars and the like, there is always a risk that something will not go as planned. Then, as an entrepreneur, you cannot expect your employees to be able to afford to cover large costs. Having a business card in such a situation can make it very easy.
With a credit card, you as an entrepreneur have better control over all expenses made and with the help of an additional software can now see your expenses in real time.
