Will applying with Capital on Tap affect my credit rating?

No - applying with us is risk-free and the checks won't affect your credit score. We only perform a soft inquiry on your business and personal credit files when you apply, meaning the search is only visible to you and us.

The one-page application will ask for basic business and personal information. Once you’re signed up, the business compliance team will check that your business complies with regulatory requirements. If all conditions are met, we will send you your Capital on Tap Business Credit Card.

In some circumstances, we may require further information on your business such as business trading activity or the names and address of any additional business owners. We will contact you within one business day via email if this is the case and inform you of any requirements in order to complete your application.

We may occasionally restrict spend on your card where we believe doing so would protect you from unauthorized usage, or would be necessary for compliance with our regulatory obligations.

The daily withdrawal limit is 2 transactions, with a maximum cumulative value of $400.

Are there any merchant categories where I can't use my card?

We do have some restricted merchant categories that we cannot authorize due to the nature of funding that we provide (for businesses). We currently don’t support spending at a small number of merchant categories in accordance with our Terms & Conditions. Examples include gambling-related activities, securities brokerage services, fines, wire-transfers and purchasing foreign currency. Thank you for your understanding.

You are able to set spending limits on all supplementary cards (via the Cards page in your portal). Currently, we’re unable to block ATM transactions on your cards.

You can use your Capital on Tap card almost anywhere in the world, and at any seller who accepts Visa. Better still, we don’t apply any charges or commission on those transactions above the base exchange rate, and you don’t even have to notify us of your trip abroad!

What will happen?


Any transactions will be automatically declined. We will endeavour to contact you to inform you of the reason why your payment was declined and may attempt to call you if we require any additional information. In case your card recently declined and you did not spend in any of these regions, please head over to our Card Decline Checklist to find out why.

To complete an online purchase, please select the correct card type and ensure you use your business address as the billing address. Please then complete all other required fields online, all of which can be found on your Capital on Tap card.

The merchant will usually need your name, your 16-digit card number printed on the back of the card, the expiry date and the card type which is Visa Credit. The expiry date is shown as the 'Valid Thru' or 'Expires/Ends' date. They may also request your CVV number, which is the last three digits on the signature strip of the card.

Some of your transactions may be authorised using a One Time Passcode (OTP). Please remember to never share your OTP over the phone, not even with a Capital on Tap employee.

You are able to make up to 25 transactions per day on your Capital on Tap Business Credit Card.

You are able to spend your credit limit at least twice each month, however, you will need to make additional debit card repayments into your account in order to increase your available funds. It’s worth noting that we automatically review accounts every 4-6 months to see if we’re able to increase your limit and help your business grow.

If the expected delivery date has passed, or if no delivery date was agreed and it is 15 days since the date of the transaction, please contact the supplier. If you are unable to resolve this with the supplier or have any further queries please contact us on 833-972-1323.

Fees and Repayments

You should only borrow money that you feel you can comfortably repay. We don't like charging late fees and recommend you contact us on 833-972-1323 if you think you might not be able to make a scheduled repayment. In the event we can't reach you, your account may incur additional charges for late payment as outlined in your funding agreement.

What is the fee for the Founders Rewards Card?

For a limited time only, the annual fee is $0 for the lifetime of the account. The card offers 1 point for every $1 of card spend, redeemable for 2c (2% cashback).

You have three repayment options which you can update each month to suit your preferences. You can select a Monthly Minimum, Fixed Amount, or Full Balance repayment option. The exact amount will vary month on month depending on your outstanding balance. In the event that your balance is less than the minimum monthly amount, your full outstanding balance will be taken.

You can also repay at any time by making a debit card payment on the Repayments page of your account.

We do not accept payments from a PayPal account. You can, however, make a debit card repayment at any time via the Repayments page on your online account.

We collect payments via ACH debit each month. Make sure you have your ACH debit set up on your account, and we'll take care of the rest!

The length of time it takes to repay depends on your chosen method of repayment. You can repay as quickly as you like, irrespective of your chosen repayment method by making a manual debit card payment anytime via your online account. Simply log in and head over to the Repayments tab.

Can I cancel an upcoming payment?

We can cancel a specific upcoming payment up until two business days prior to the payment due date.

If you are trying to cancel a payment within two business days of your due date, we will be unable to cancel it for you. However, you will be able to give your bank a quick call and ask for this to be cancelled. Please specify that you wish to cancel this payment only and not the whole mandate.

Will I be charged for exceeding my approved credit limit?

There is no fee for exceeding your approval amount, however, you will no longer have available funds to spend once you have exceeded your limit.

In order to increase your available funds again, please make a debit card repayment to reduce your outstanding balance back below your limit. Alternatively, you can wait for your next monthly payment to be processed.

Don't worry - any overpayment will go towards paying off your balance as soon as you start spending on your card again.

If you would like the amount to be refunded back to you, please get in touch on 833-972-1323.
