With the Circula corporate credit card in cooperation with Pliant, costs from virtual and physical credit cards can be transferred as expenses directly to Circula in real-time.

This article highlights the steps to activate the Circula-Pliant integration on your own.

Activation of Pliant-Circula integration

❗️ Note ❗️

  • Activation of the integration can only be performed by the administrator of the Circula and Pliant organization/corporate account.

  • Independent activation of integration applies only to individual entities: If there is one Pliant entity and multiple entities in Circula, only one entity in Circula can be connected to the Pliant integration.

💡The integration only allows a single connection 💡

Activating the integration

  1. The administrator logs in to his/her Pliant account and selects Integrations > Circula > Connect Circula

    step 1

    step 1

  2. In order to set up the connection between Pliant and Circula, all data required to transfer the transaction data and receipts to Circula is entered. The following data is required:
    Master data of the organization
    Employee and team data of card users
    Credit card data
    Transaction and voucher data
    Credit card statement/accounting data

    Click Authorize after the data transaction.

  4. The administrator of the Circula corporate account logs in with the Circula credentials.

  5. Optional settings
    Two fields can be filled in the integration settings in Circula, which can also be edited in the future.
    1️⃣ A default creditor number is specified for all expenses that run through pliant. 💡 Tip 💡
    Many companies use an additional creditor number for credit cards to differentiate them from the reimbursements Circula still pays out to their employees. If this field is blank, the submitter's creditor number will be used.

    2️⃣ Catch-all-user for non Circula user: If Pliant-users do not have a Circula account, but the expenses are still transferred from Pliant to Circula, the default-user will receive his/her expenses. This way the (travel) expense report can still be done correctly and assigned to the books. This specification is highly recommended!

    Final setting of the integration in the Circula interface


    The administration can now be completed. Agree to the settings of the data transfer between Pliant and Circula. After that you will be redirected back to Pliant.


    Edit integration to a later stage

    If you want to set up the creditor number or catch-all-user for integration between Pliant and Circula later, these can be done by Circula administrators under Integrations > Credit Card.
