Taulia and Mastercard partner to launch virtual card B2B payments solution


Taulia, a leading provider of working capital management solutions, has partnered with Mastercard to launch Taulia Virtual Cards. The new solution provides businesses with additional working capital management advantages, including the ability to maximize cash flow and minimize payment uncertainty. Following Taulia Virtual Cards' seamless integration across SAP ERP solutions, including SAP S/4HANA and other major enterprise resource planning (ERP) platforms, corporates can streamline previously cumbersome payment-related tasks more effectively and affordably.

Initially, two major banks - Degussa Bank and HSBC - are set to participate. Taulia customers will benefit through their existing issuer relationships, meaning customers can deploy virtual cards and extend the current benefits offered by their own banks through Taulia, while also enjoying the speed, controls, and efficiency of virtual card payments. This "bring your own bank" capability is made possible by Taulia's integration with Mastercard's innovative virtual card platform, which is connected with more than 80 banks globally.

This partnership will allow Taulia to expand its working capital solutions for businesses by leveraging virtual cards generated through Mastercard upon request, providing significant time and cost savings to corporates seeking more consumer-grade user experiences in their enterprise platforms.

Through the tightly integrated virtual card experience, businesses benefit from greater spend control and more options to pay suppliers efficiently. On the other end, suppliers gain improved cash flow and enhanced visibility, alleviating friction across B2B transactions.

Danielle Weinblatt, Chief Product Officer, Taulia, commented: "We are delighted to be partnering with Mastercard, doubling down on our commitment to transform the world of global trade and commerce by bringig our customers a fully embedded working capital management solution that prioritizes the customer experience."



Rebecca Meeker, Senior Vice President, Global Partnerships and Segments, Mastercard, commented: "Fragmented B2B payment practices have held businesses back for too long. Virtual cards accelerate automation and support cash flow through increased access to working capital, which is why Mastercard is thrilled to work with Taulia and its banking partners to extend the benefits of virtual cards while prioritizing customer experience."

Arati Kurien, Global Head of Commercial Cards Product Management, HSBC, commented: "We're pleased to be embracing innovation through our partnerships with Taulia and Mastercard, which will now provide our clients with an integrated virtual card payment solution within the Taulia platform. Embedding HSBC's financial services into the systems that our clients use day to day is a key focus for us."


Matthias WeiƟ, Board Member, Degussa Bank AG, commented: "We are very excited to provide our customers an SAP-integrated virtual credit card solution and are looking forward to a successful partnership with Taulia to grow our German procurement footprint."
