Frequently Asked Questions when applying for a Shell Card through Express Application
ABOUT SHELL CARD
How does Shell Card work?
Think of it like a credit card for fuel purchases. Every purchase is itemised on a single tax invoice and statement, and the cost of purchases deducted from your nominated account on monthly payment terms.
What are the benefits of Shell Card?
It makes paying for fuel easy; all your purchases appear on a single tax invoice and statement, ready for tax time; you can set usage controls and fraud protection is built-in… to name a few!
I don’t use much fuel in my business. Is it still worth getting a Shell Card?
Yes! Shell Card makes managing your business’ fuel easy, whether you have one vehicle or a whole fleet plus, we offer discounts off the pump price!
What if my business has multiple vehicles?
Applying for a Shell Card through our Express Application only allows you to have 1 card per account. However, our Business and Enterprise managed accounts allow you to have multiple cards!
