What is CardUp?
CardUp is an online card payments platform for cash management which enables any payment made by bank transfer today to be shifted to a credit card, regardless of whether the recipients accept credit cards.
Consumers can maximise card benefits like extended credit terms and the earning of reward points on big payments like rent to a landlord, taxes, insurance premiums and tuition fees.
For businesses, shifting expenses like payroll, office rent, supplier invoices and more to their credit card via CardUp provides instant access to interest-free credit of up to 59 days, increasing their access to working capital, improving their cash flow and digitising processes at the same time.
CardUp accepts all major credit cards and partners with leading institutions like United Overseas Bank (UOB), Citibank, Bank of China and Mastercard, to name a few.
