A major benefit of your Viably Business Account is having access to a Viably debit card (be it a virtual OR a physical card). There are so many opportunities to grow your business and help rein in your employees’ spend with your Viably cards, but where exactly can you start?

Let’s review the fundamentals of controlling and setting up your Viably debit cards.

Viably Debit Card Controls

Defining Debit Cards’ Daily Spend

As a reminder, Viably allows each user to be issued one (1) physical debit card and up to five (5) virtual debit cards.

When issuing a Viably debit card, you can define the daily purchase and withdrawal limits – putting you in control of your users’ spend. Setting these spending limits can help safeguard your money so members of your team don’t overspend.

Using the slider on the issue cards page, you can specify the daily purchase limit and the daily cash withdrawal for a card.


Customize daily spending limits for Viably debit cards.

The purchase limit ranges from $100 - $5,000, every 24 hours.

The cash withdrawal limit ranges from $100 - $500, every 24 hours.

In Viably’s Cards dashboard, a user can see both physical and virtual cards. Clicking into a card from the card carousel, you can see the defined daily purchase and cash withdrawal limits.


Viably's card dashboard allows you to see all Viably debit card statuses and spending limits.

Admins can also alter daily spending and withdrawal limits, for those previously issued cards. Once a card has been selected from the card carousel, select the edit pencil above the spending limits, and it will prompt you to “Edit card.”


With a few clicks, adjust a Viably debit card's daily purchase and spending limits.

Viably Debit Card Nicknames

Issuing multiple Viably debit cards can help you separate and manage ongoing expenses, but can also give you insight into various trends in your spend.

For example, if you want to keep an eye on recurring monthly subscriptions (to simplify reporting but to possibly find areas to curb spending!), use one virtual debit card just for those recurring subscriptions. Maybe you want a card solely for office purchases and another card reserved for events. Separate Viably debit cards can accommodate all these use cases.

Now the question is… how do you know which card is being used for specific business expenses? Give your Viably card a nickname!

A Viably card can be nicknamed when you’re first issuing the new debit card:

Provide a nickname for newly issued Viably debit cards.

Or a Viably debit card that is already in use can easily be given a nickname. From the card dashboard, click into the card you’d like to nickname. Select the edit pencil above the spending limits, and you can then provide or edit the card’s nickname.


To easily identify your various Viably debit cards, give issued cards a nickname.
