Dollar Limits

Each Cardholder has a limit of $10,000 per monthly billing cycle. Should a purchase be attempted that would put the Cardholder over this established limit, it will be denied when the merchant processes the charge.

Unlike the ProCard, there is not a daily or per transaction limit for the GoCard.

Merchant Restrictions

The GoCard is restricted from use by merchant types such as drug/department stores, restaurants/bars. Goods and services that are normally purchased by ProCard, Requisitions, or Direct Pays are not allowed on the GoCard.

Exceptions

Any request for delegation of authority that would exceed the established monthly limit, or conflict with merchant restrictions or prohibited items must be submitted to the Accounts Payable Manager or designee for approval.
