The P-CATS team is here to serve all of your credit card buying needs. The P-Card eliminates purchase orders for small dollar merchandise while offering a time saving method of payment. There are two options available for P-Card buying: goods/services and travel related expenses. Please see the Travel Services Home Page for information about travel related purchases.

P-Cards with CHIP and PIN Technology

All P-Cards are CHIP & PIN enabled.  The cards contain an embedded microchip that holds encrypted information, making it extremely difficult for the card to be counterfeited or copied. The cards can be used at both CHIP and non-CHIP terminals.
