How Do Fuel Cards For E-Commerce Businesses Work?

Fuel cards are similar to debit or credit cards and provide the card holder with access to thousands of sites on the fuel card network. This can be beneficial for e-commerce businesses that are carrying out deliveries locally or nationwide. Learn more about how fuel cards work.

Fuel cards provide convenience, control and cost savings through streamlining purchases. For businesses completing a lot of deliveries this can be a significant saving.

Benefits Of Fuel Cards

  1. Savings
  2. Easy VAT Reclaim
  3. Less Admin
  4. Increased Security
  5. Large Site Network

1. Savings

One of the main benefits of fuel cards is the savings associated with them.

Savings come in more ways that just lower prices.

For example, using your free online account management tool you can monitor how often drivers are filling up. Using this you can see which drivers are spending the most and provide training to improve driver performance.

With lower costs and improved driver performance, you’re looking at savings.

2. Easy VAT Reclaim

A great benefit of using fuel cards is that they make your VAT reclaim process very easy.

All invoices are VAT approved, with all transaction from a given period combined together.

This removes the need to collect receipts for every individual transaction, simplifying your VAT reclaim process.

3. Less Admin

With access to Velocity Fleet, your free online account management system, you can cut down on admin.

Everything you need will be in one place and with just a couple of clicks you can easily create expense and transaction reports.

This can cut down a ton of wasted admin time.

4. Increased Security

Fuel cards are a lot safer than cash and credits.

Each card has a unique four digit PIN and strict limits can be set to limit purchases to a certain amount. Alerts can also be created, meaning you will receive notification each time a transaction over a certain amount is completed.

Fuel cards are also limited to fuel, meaning employees can’t purchase non-fuel products.

5. Large Site Network

When it comes to carrying out deliveries, you want the security of knowing that fuel stations are close by in the case of an emergency.

The Fuelwise Fuel Card Site Network provides access to over 5,250 fuel stations across the UK and Ireland, the largest site network of any fuel card provider. With Fuelwise, there will always be a site close by.
