Hmmm, the investment bankers are very close to Google.
What do you mean?
Do you think their retail colleagues came up with this on their own? I don't
Er.. yes. or Google did. Credit card issuers are always looking for new business, and putting someone else's brand on a card is not a new idea. There is a new twist in a card that can only be used to pay one seller.
IN what sense is someone working for another company a colleague? I am pretty sure the US bank involved is unconnected to any investment bank.
to sole traders / individuals who don't already have a credit card?
I doubt it. Most people already have a credit card unless they are a bad risk or do not want one. Barclays are not going to issue these cards much more easily than a Barclaycard branded card.
@ember, maybe you could get a bigger limit on your other card? It is also possible that the bank thinks business lending is lower risk as people tend to be more sensible about it, and they should get a return on it.
