Choosing the right business card is a critical decision. It impacts costs, how flexible you can be with spending, and how much time you’ll spend managing expenses. And there’s no shortage of choice, which makes it even more complicated. 

Ampla’s Visa Corporate Card is a new option. It’s unique because it was designed for consumer brands, whereas a lot of other options are for a general audience. Read on to see how it compares to some common options: Brex Corporate Card, AMEX Small Business Cards, Chase Ink Business Cards, Ramp Corporate Card, and CapitalOne Spark Credit Cards.

In Summary – the TLDR: 

When it comes to the Ampla Visa Corporate Card, the difference is in the underwriting. We understand that consumer brands have revenue from multiple sources and tend to experience peaks in seasonality that require higher limits; we cater our offering to these unique circumstances. And it’s simple - 1.5% cash back on all spend, no annual fees, and no credit checks. It’s ideal for the reality of running a growing consumer brand.

Like to travel? Need a personal concierge for theater tickets? The Ampla Visa Corporate Card wouldn’t be the choice. Its focus is on making managing your cash flow easier and more transparent. 

Options like the Brex Corporate Card shine for rewards on items like travel, or even buying billboard ad space. But it considers very limited data in setting your credit limits. 

On the other hand, AMEX Small Business Cards can be flexible with payment terms, but most require you to pay very large annual fees. 

Much like the Ampla Visa Corporate Card, the Chase Ink Business Cards generally have uncomplicated rewards systems, but they require personal guarantees and cash collateral. 

The Ramp Corporate Card is backed by a great tech infrastructure that even lets you capture receipt data through mobile, but credit limits don’t fluctuate based on cash balance. 

Lastly, Capital One Spark Credit Cards are also great options because they generally don’t have annual fees, but they have the highest APRs compared to other cards we’ve profiled in this blog post.
