ABOUT EXTEND

Extend is the world's first virtual card platform that works with every card issuer. Which might make you think, what is a virtual card? Virtual cards effectively tokenize a physical card making it easy to create any number of digital cards, each with advanced controls around everything from spending to geolocation, to merchant gating, which enables very powerful uses for a massive number of industries. From helping lawyers and law firms clearly break out expenses by cases and attorneys, to powering food delivery companies like GrubHub and DoorDash so couriers can easily pay for the food they're picking up, to helping travel companies hold thousands of hotel rooms all tied to individual virtual cards.
