Corporate cards are Visa Business and MasterCard Business international payment cards, issued by Sberbank of Russia in the name of your authorised employees.
In addition to the full name of the holder, the name of your company is specified (embossed) on the corporate cards.

Sberbank of Russia has introduced technology for protected online operations (using the Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode technologies) to make online purchases safe and secure.
Unlike the "standard" method of payment for an online purchase, you will be sent an additional request to confirm the operation.
To confirm the operation, you must enter a single-use password, which can be collected for free at Sberbank's ATMs upon entering you PIN number.
You will get a receipt containing 10 single-use passwords. A single-use password, containing 8 figures and Latin letters, can be used for one operation only.
Sberbank cards enable the completion of online transactions in protected mode.
Visa Business – on websites using the technology
MasterCard Business – on websites using the technology
To avoid unlawful use of the card, keep single-use passwords in a place to which unauthorised persons have no access and do not pass them to others to complete operations. Please remember that, according to the terms of card use, the holder shall be responsible for the operations performed using single-use passwords.
If the receipt containing the passwords is lost, you must obtain another one. Once you receive the new receipt, you can no longer use the passwords from the old one.
To avoid compromising data relating to the card, we recommend that you familiarise yourself with the International Bank Card Holder Checklist.
