Wallaby_FinDEVr2015_logoWallaby Financial helps consumers get the most out of their credit cards by optimizing usage based on individual preferences. Through our products, you can optimize your credit card usage for rewards, credit limit, statement due-dates, linked bonuses, and other factors. Wallaby is available for your smartphone, your web browser, and your wearable devices.

APIs for cards and wallets
Paying isn’t just about getting a transaction complete. Wallaby’s unique API platform allows developers to build a variety of applications to make their payments smart and build engaging content about credit cards for users. With our APIs, you can build and maintain a complete wallet for your users. This enables you to create an engaging experience, collect additional data, reduce bad charges, and provide incremental discounts and values to your users. Non-transactional capabilities allow companies to build complete experiences with rich data and imagery around cards. With thousands of credit cards in the U.S., Wallaby can help you organize and use them right.

Key takeaways:

  • Cards are complicated, but we’ve made it simple.
  • There’s a best card to use in every transaction.
  • You can save your users money without paying for the discount.

Wallaby Upgrades Credit Card Optimization Solution with Spend Monitor

WallabyHomepage1

Wallaby Financial launched Spend Monitor, along with an updated dashboard and customizable widgets. The improvements to its credit card rewards maximization service give users a more complete view of their daily finances.

Spend Monitor provides a quick view of credit-card spending, making it easy to track finances and identify changes in spending behavior. It does this with three key actions:

  • Pinpoints increased or unusual activity in a specific category via spending alerts
  • Identifies suspicious activity, such as double charges and potential fraud
  • Depicts where and how users could have earned more rewards

The updated dashboard screen (pictured below) offers users a quick glance of their rewards, upcoming bills, and overall spending.

MobileDashboard

These upgrades are part of version 4.0 of Wallaby’s iOS mobile app, which also includes widgets such as bill-pay alerts, and a tool (pictured below) to identify the best credit card to use for each purchase.

WallabyBestCardThe new Wallaby 4.0 mobile app is available for iOS devices, including the Apple Watch.
