Comdata developed this feature in response to frequent customer requests for enhanced controlled spending for pay-at-the-pump transactions.
If you are a Comdata Mastercard Corporate Fleet Card customer, you will see the value of this new feature in two ways:
- Fewer declines at the pump. Previously, a uniform preauthorization hold amount determined if a cardholder was approved at the pump along with the approved fueling amount. The Pay-at-the-Pump Limits feature supersedes the preauthorization hold amount at participating merchants, allowing the cardholder to fuel up to their actual minimum available balance.
- Less over purchasing. Previously, if a cardholder had a minimum available balance above the uniform preauthorization hold amount, their card would be approved for unrestricted purchases. With Pay-at-the-Pump Limits, the pump will shut off when their actual minimum available balance is reached.
