Card Program Fundamentals
Risk Mitigation/Compliance Considerations
Traditional Point of Sale Controls
 Merchant category controls (MCC)
 Per transaction spend limits
 Daily, monthly, & annual spend limits
 Velocity limits
Management Visibility into Spend
 Real time visibility into recent authorizations
 Next day visibility into processed transactions
 Reporting of potential exception activities
Fraud Monitoring
 PNC provides proactive fraud monitoring 24x7 through the analysis of suspect
spending patterns
 Utilizing an intelligent neural network that risk-rates the probability of fraudulent
transactions based on a card’s past spending history and PNC determined fraud
criteria queues
Liability Waiver Coverage
 Provides insurance coverage addressing cardholder misuse up to $100,000
 Covers posted transactions surrounding notification of termination
 Covers 75 prior to, and 15 days from, notification of termination

Card Program Fundamentals
Electronic AP Card Solutions – Key Control Considerations

Current sourcing, approval and AP processing activities are unaffected

Accounts are only funded for amounts approved and authorized

No card account details are housed within Accounts Payable environment or are
transmitted to PNC

Automated transmission of payment authorization file to PNC

No physical card issuance

PNC solutions fully PCI-DSS compliant – protecting payment details

Fraud monitoring and reporting

PNC has experienced $0 fraud across our epayables programs since inception in 2004

Value Proposition
Efficiency, Revenue Share, Float, and Other
Technology Benefits
14
Value Proposition
Benefits of Card Programs
Convenience ranks as the number one benefit of p-card programs, followed by the receipt of
rebates
*2012 PayStream Advisors
15
Efficiency
Traditional Procure to Pay Model Characteristics
 Integration and confirmation of receiving function prior to payment decisioning
 Forces approval and compliance of company business rules prior to payment
 Complete vendor file – timeliness and accessibility to this vendor data varies by
system (more problematic in older legacy deployments)
 Complex requisition rules/interface can promote maverick spending with associated
exception request for disbursement workflow – degrading A/P processing efficiencies
 Expense and complexity of maintaining vendor file – particularly for one-time vendors
or other small dollar items
 Generally characterized by a relative high cost to process
16
Efficiency
Charge Coding Card Transactions
GL Coding and
Transaction Splitting
Enhanced Data,
Level I, II, & III
Approval Rules and History
 Review, validate and enhance transaction details
 Custom Charge Coding access, transaction splitting,
complex tax estimation
 Receipt integration
 Reviewed transactions will be automatically available
for Approval or Extract
17
Interchange Revenue Sharing

Accepting merchants are assessed interchange fees for access to the card
processing network (Visa, MC, AMEX, etc.)

PNC, as a Card Issuer receives a portion of the interchange and can share a portion
of the interchange they receive

Rebates paid on qualified spend – use of tiers to determine appropriate rebate (top
tier applied to all spend)

PNC can either rebates or reward models through Visa Extras

Financial proposal impacted by billing cycle length, payment terms, number/size of
expected transactions

Payment Optimization Strategies
Creating an Optimal Payment Mix

protocol model of card first, ACH second, and check last, Company’s can
migrate toward an optimum payment mix.
