What is the Comdata OnRoad Card?2024-03-12T12:04:47+00:00

Moreover, all MasterCard Signature Debit transactions are free of fees, so there’s no need to worry about losing money on your purchases. Just look for the MasterCard logo at checkout. Also, you can still use OnRoad for company-related expenses, such as fuel and maintenance, based on your company’s policies. With OnRoad, you have full control over your money and can use your funds as you see fit.

The OnRoad Card can be used just like cash, meaning you can purchase anything from office supplies, groceries, hotels, airline tickets, haircuts, and movie streaming services.

These instructions are also included in the envelope with the card.

Why do I need to complete the CIP process?2024-03-06T18:31:16+00:00

Bank sponsors have long required sensitive personal information for programs involving financial transactions as part of the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC)’s Know Your Customer regulations. Anyone conducting financial transactions with financial institutions must provide this private information in order to do business with them.

How long will it take to find out if Self-Service CIP passed?2024-03-06T20:25:19+00:00

Cardholders find out instantaneously in the DRIVEN FOR COMDATA™ app if they’ve been approved or have failed CIP. If a Cardholder is signing up as a business, their application may need to be reviewed by the compliance team. If so, they’ll see a pending status in the DRIVEN FOR COMDATA™ app. Pending reviews may take a maximum of 7 business days to complete.

What happens when the Self-Service CIP is successful?2024-03-06T18:34:17+00:00

Once the process is successful, the card will appear in the wallet in the DRIVEN FOR COMDATA™ app, and you can start using the app with full available functionality.

What is Compliance Review?2024-03-06T19:38:57+00:00

Businesses requiring multiple entities on their CIP application may need to be reviewed by the compliance team for various reasons if there are issues validating one or more of the entities during the CIP process. The compliance team will email the cardholder of the CIP results if the CIP is not passed within seven business days of the submittal. Cardholders should double-check that all the information they’ve entered is correct before submitting the Self-Service CIP.

If I get a new card, will I have to complete Self-Service CIP again?2024-03-06T18:37:58+00:00

The CIP record is tied to your DRIVEN FOR COMDATA™ app account, not the card. If you receive a new card for any reason (i.e., replacement card or moving jobs), there is no need to pass CIP again. The new card can be added to your existing DRIVEN FOR COMDATA™ account, and the CIP record will be loaded onto the new card.

Note: If you delete your DRIVEN FOR COMDATA™ account, you must reapply for CIP.

Alerts & Notifications

Why we send Alerts and Notifications?2024-02-14T17:50:57+00:00

Protecting our cardholders’ security is a top priority. By protecting that security, we are helping you and your company avoid the risks of identity theft and fraud, which can cost you money. In addition, we aim to keep you and your cardholders informed on card declines that are not fraud-related.

How does Alerts and Notifications work?2024-02-14T16:52:02+00:00

Your company’s Mastercard Administrator will sign up your company for the program, and then you will receive an enrollment email. Follow the instructions in the email to confirm your participation. Once enrolled, you will receive text message alerts each time our risk management system identifies a suspicious transaction on your Mastercard. Then, you can reply to the message and mark it as fraudulent or legitimate.

If you identify a transaction as fraudulent, each additional transaction will be declined. However, you will receive a text message with each declined transaction, allowing you to override the declined authorization. If you override, you can swipe your card again and continue the transaction as normal, only if the transaction is for the same amount and from the same merchant. If you receive a declined transaction you don’t recognize, there is no need to respond, as the transaction was not authorized.

This is very beneficial, as you can continue using your card even if the card number is compromised.

Is there a charge to participate in Alerts and Notifications?2024-02-14T18:21:31+00:00

Standard data and text rates will apply. However, cardholders only receive text messages if suspicious activity is identified on their card, fraud is confirmed, or a transaction is declined.

What if I want to unsubscribe from the Alerts and Notifications program?2024-02-14T17:58:22+00:00

We strongly encourage you to remain enrolled in the program to protect yourself and your company from credit card fraud. However, if you wish to unsubscribe, reply STOP to any text message you receive from the program.

Can I use the Alerts and Notifications program if I travel internationally?2024-02-14T17:57:04+00:00

Functionality outside of the United States depends on your mobile phone carrier and your type of device. Alerts and Notifications will function outside the U.S. in most cases, but this is not always guaranteed.

Who should I contact if I have more questions?2024-02-14T19:59:00+00:00

For questions about your enrollment, contact your company’s card Administrator. Call the 1-800 number on the back for other questions about using your card.
