Before Plastiq, SMB’s pay vendors:
$9 Trillion in Cash Payments
$3 Trillion in Active Credit.
1 Billion active Credit Cards
Plastiq combines two multi-trillion-dollar industries.
Plastiq was formed to make it easier for businesses to pay and get paid, by allowing them to use the credit they worked hard to get. This fintech believes (1) everyone should pay how they want to, (2) have more control over their business finances, and (3) get their money where it’s supposed to go quickly, efficiently and securely.
