April efforts bring May features: you can now print your company name on your physical debit card.*

Unknown block type "video", specify a component for it in the `components.types` prop

Customize your card by going to your settings page and scrolling down to update your card name. Updating this setting will change it for your entire company, and any newly issued cards will have your company's name. A few things to note:

  • The name on the card must be 25 characters or less
  • If you order a new card, your card number will change
  • This is just for physical cards, not virtual cards

Here's more news from Mercury

To set it up, head to Zapier and log in or sign up, search for Mercury, and select your integration preferences.
