To establish a Mastercard Smart Data commercial feed for your company account, your company card provider and Mastercard will need to complete the required documentation before any changes can be made.

Please follow the steps outlined below to enable us to configure the Smart Data commercial feed:

  1. Please contact your bank to let them know you would like ExpenseIn to start receiving the Smart Data feed. Your bank will then make the initial contact with Mastercard by submitting your request if they support the Mastercard feed.

    Please note: It may take two weeks or slightly longer for Mastercard to complete actioning the request. Not all banks are able to provide a Mastercard feed.

  2. Once your bank has confirmed the Mastercard Smart Data Distribution ID to you, please provide this to our Implementation team along with the desired date you like the nominated account to start receiving transactions from the Mastercard Smart Data feed.

  3. Our Implementation team will ask you to ensure all cardholder statement identifiers have been updated with the obfuscated PAN from the cardholder's card.

    The required format: First 6 digits followed by 6 x's and then the last 4 digits.

    Example: 654718xxxxxx1231

    Important: Never enter the full 16 digits PAN within ExpenseIn.

    Once the Mastercard Smart Data commercial feed is live, this will use and automatically detect the statement identifiers setup against your user profiles to allocate each purchase transaction.

  4. The Mastercard Smart Data feed configuration will be completed by the agreed go-live date and confirmed with you.

Each account is limited to one commercial feed set up. Any additional company cards by a different card provider will require the use of our card statement import feature.

Please contact our support team by emailing if you would like to know more about setting up this feature.
