Announcement:

Payability has teamed up with Amazon Launchpad

We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve teamed up with Amazon Launchpad to provide financing for the incredible Amazon Launchpad startups. Payability is featured as a financing solution on the newly released Amazon Launchpad Services Hub.

The biggest concern of startups going into large retailers like Amazon is the cash crunch that comes from rapidly increasing orders and long payment terms. This results in a situation where the startups sales are scaling, but they are faced with inventory shortages due to lack of cash to fulfill the growing purchase orders. And that’s where we come in. With Payability, startups no longer have to wait months to receive revenue from invoices, and startups can rest easy knowing their growth won’t be stymied by lack of financing.

Through our relationship with Amazon Launchpad, we are very excited to be partnering with the most innovative startups to help them propel their growth through faster access to their working capital.

Amazon Launchpad startups, like our customer Petnet, are creating revolutionary, smart and eco-friendly products all of which are now accessible to consumers worldwide through Amazon.com.

It is an exciting time for Payability and I couldn’t be more proud of the team that has made this relationship with Amazon Launchpad possible.
