About Dots

Dots is building a multichannel payouts API for marketplaces. Marketplace payouts are needlessly complex, especially when dealing with multiple payment providers. Many marketplaces still manually process payouts on a regular basis and Dots aims to fix that.

Our API lets a marketplace pay their sellers in the ways they want to be paid, including Venmo, Paypal, ACH and Zelle. As more Americans earn a living by picking up side hustles and becoming 1099 workers, marketplaces need to provide flexible payout options.

Dots enables multiple forms of payouts through a single easy to use API. Today, multiple YCombinator and international companies use Dots, and we're always growing. Over time, Dots will be the one stop fintech for marketplaces — expanding into payment processing, banking, and lending. If you want to be a part of the next generation of fintech startups, we are your people. We like to think big and achieve bigger.
