No, prepaid business credit cards don’t build credit. Even when they’re marketed to businesses, prepaid cards are not credit cards, as there’s no credit line attached to them. Unlike a credit card, prepaid cards have their funds stored in a stand-alone prepaid account which you can reload. So you can only spend what you’ve deposited into your account. That’s why they don’t help build personal or business credit.
A secured credit card is a better option for those wanting to build credit. Secured credit cards do report to credit bureaus, so using them responsibly will help build your credit history. You don’t need good credit history for a secured credit card, because your credit limit is simply how much of a deposit you’re able to put down when you apply or open an account. Thus, the credit line is “secured” by the deposit. Some of the best secured credit cards are open to consumers as well, but small business owners can also apply for them. Secured business credit cards may also provide features specifically tailored towards businesses, such as employee cards with individual spending limits and more.
