Virtual Credit Cards

Due to the higher level of fraud with virtual credit cards, we are no longer able to accept payments from these types credit card issuers. Virtual credit card companies, such as and, allow you to create multiple credit card numbers from a single account. These credit card numbers can be created for a one time use, which you can quickly dispose of afterwards. This is a tactic is actively employed by scammers to avoid detection.

These virtual cards are handy for being able to turn on and off credit card numbers, and to manage spending with vendors and to cancel cards in the event of a data breech.
