Chase-InkJPMorgan Chase Bank launched a new small business credit card called the “Ink” card that is the first Visa/Mastercard backed charge card. This move is a bold foray into the previously American Express only market of charge cards. Unlike a typical credit card a charge card must have it’s balance paid off in full every month and carries no interest rate.

There are 4 different variations of the “Ink” card offered by Chase with only one of them, the Chase Ink Bold card, being a charge card. The Chase Ink Bold card has a $95 annual fee (although the annual fee is waived for the first year), a variable line of credit that adjusts based on the spending habits of the small business, and rewards of up to 3% on certain business related purchases but in all reality most purchases will be capped out at an unlimited 1% cash back (which is less than the 1.5% that the phased out Chase Flexible Rewards Select Business Card had previously earned for its cardholders).

While this release of a new Chase small business credit card is a promising sign for small business owners, many of whom have traditionally been shunned by credit card issuers, it can still be a difficult thing for many small business owners to apply for and get approved for a small business credit card.
