Brex and 1Password have formed a partnership to make “secure and frictionless” online payments, according to a Tuesday, January 25, 1Password blog post by browser experience manager Andrew Beyer, who notes that 1Password customers can now use Brex virtual credit cards to pay online in two clicks.
“Growing businesses choose Brex because their all-in-one platform of financial software, services and products makes it easy to control business expenses and manage leads in one place,” the blog post states. “1Password teams and Business customers can now connect their Brex account to 1Password for secure, frictionless online payments in just two clicks.”
Brex customers can now autofill their company and vendor card information while paying anywhere on the web from 1Password, while admins can also create and populate vendor cards during checkout.
After employees connect their Brex and 1Password accounts, a Brex vault is created in their 1Password account, the announcement says. Users have access to their Brex company cards and supplier cards (admins only) through 1Password in the browser, which they can manage from their Brex dashboards.
Maps and all updates are immediately available in the 1Password Brex employee vault. Brex virtual cards can be created, stored and used for payment anywhere on the web, according to the announcement.
