An AP Automation Card Product allows you to issue single-use debit cards funded from a Financial Account owned by a business. These are Virtual Payment Cards available on your app or website issued for specific transactions with Authorizations controlled by spend rules.
In the Test Environment, you can create an Invoice Automation Card Product from the Highnote Dashboard or with the
CreateCardProduct mutation in the Highnote GraphQL API.
Once you've created your Commercial Card Product, you create a Business Account Holder. Account Holders may be issued Payment Cards from multiple Card Products.
