After sending out Tuesday’s PurchTips article “Procurement Card Pros & Cons ,” I received a suprising number of emails asking what the heck a procurement card is!
I forgot that procurement card use (and credit card use, in general) is not as common in other countries as it is in the USA. Some folks even asked me to send a picture of a procurement card.
I’ve referred these folks to MasterCard’s site, which has some nice, simple, bulleted information and, yes, a picture of a procurement card. If you’re one of the folks who was wondering what a procurement card is, here’s a link that will take you to MasterCard’s site: http://tinyurl.com/2bmcq3
