How do I know if my card is frozen/blocked, closed, or inactive? Am I notified if the money on my card is not enough?

As a cardholder, you need to know if a transaction with your Payhawk corporate debit card has failed and why.

In Payhawk, you can monitor each failed card transaction by sending you a descriptive push notification explaining the reason why the payment has failed.


To receive notifications about failed transactions, enable the push notifications for your Payhawk mobile app from the Settings menu of your mobile device.
