Product type controls offer an advantage to Merchant Category controls. While others can control which merchant type can be accessed (ie: restaurants), WEX takes it a step further, and controls which products can be purchased at outlets such as service stations. When the card is swiped, merchant product codes automatically compare the purchase against pre-set card profile limits. If the product types are allowed and the set limits have not been exceeded, we authorize the transaction, and the merchant completes the sale. If the card is beyond the limits, it will be declined.
You can set overall limits for all purchases for a specific time period — daily, weekly, twice monthly, or monthly; and your fleet's total purchases for that period — transactions per period, dollars per period and gallons/units per period.
