Already know what you want?
If you already know what you'd like to use your Sunlight on, simply click on the multi-colored button in your sidebar.
1. Place a request from the Sunlight homepage
Once you log in, you'll be taken to the Sunlight homepage. From there, you have three different routes, but they all lead to Rome:
a) You can either go to the left-hand side menu and click the multi-colored blinking button, b) go to your to do's and click on "Use your Sunlight!" or c) click on the phrase "place a new request" right below our words of greeting.
In any case, a modal will display asking what type of item you'd like to request. Is it a book, an online course or perhaps an event? Once you select one of the options, please provide us with a link of what you'd like so that we can find out more information about it.
2. Confirm the request details
You'll be shown all the information we found on it. If it's something that has already been added to Sunlight, most of it will already be filled for you to just confirm. If it's something we haven't seen before, we'll ask you to help us provide some more information.
Here you can choose if you want your request to be “private” which means that it will not be shared on the company feeds nor on your profile.
You can also enable the option to create a subscription and the request will renew automatically every month or year depending on your needs.
3. Confirm the price and the currency
Confirm how much you'll need to purchase what you want. We will be generating a virtual debit card for you to complete your request, so remember to double check on the provider's website the price and currency, and add in any extras you might need, like shipping or tax-related costs.
4. Choose from which wallets you'd like to pay.
You can use up to 2 wallets to pay for anything with Sunlight, when you include your personal wallet. Simply choose how much you'd like to take from each and you're done!
5. That's it! What happens next?
If you're using a group wallet that needs approval, a notification will be sent for someone at your company to approve the request. Once they do, we'll let you know and generate a virtual one-time-use, prepaid debit card for you to complete your purchase.
If the wallet you used needs no approvals, then you're good to just go ahead and use the card. You can view the status of all your requests by clicking on "Requests" which is the 7th button in your sidebar.
How to use the card?
After creating the request, you’ll see a green card available for you, now you’ll need to go to the provider’s website, and use your card there as you’d use any personal debit or credit card.
Want to shop around?
