Spend requests allow spenders to request new cards or limit increases on existing cards! Spend requests will be routed to the account admin to approve, deny or edit the request.
Want to learn how to Request Spend as a Spender? Please visit our guide on requesting spend here.
You can find all pending spend requests by logging into your account as an admin and navigating to 'Requests' on the left sidebar. From there you can find the request and approve or decline it.
You can also edit it by clicking the body of the request - this will open a right sidebar 'Spend Request Details' where you can edit request details before saving and approving.
Spend request notifications
Approvers are notified via email or slack (based on your account configuration) when a new spend request has been submitted. Approvers can be modified from the approval policy section under settings - this does not retroactively apply to exisitng requests, only net new requests.
