Pipe & Friends: What integrates with Pipe?
Lack of liquidity is a pressing—and common—challenge many founders face. Even if cash is on the way and business is healthy, having the right amount of capital on hand at the right time can be critical both to managing day-to-day operations and continuing to invest in your core product or service.
The good news: Pipe can enable founders of companies with recurring revenue to access non-dilutive capital by connecting a couple of key accounts securely to its platform. Pipe makes getting access to capital fast, flexible, and seamless to get started, so you can grow your company on your terms.
Let’s take a look at how integrations make trading on Pipe more efficient for you and your team.
First things first: How does trading on Pipe work?
Sign up on Pipe
Connect your accounts (we’ll dig into this in a minute)
Get approved and receive your trading limit and bid price
Make your first trade
It’s that easy. Once you’ve signed up and connected your accounts, you can get a trading limit (that’s how much capital you can pull forward) and a bid price (that lets you know how much that capital will cost) so you know what’s possible today and can act quickly in the best interest of your business.
Keep in mind that as your company grows, so too can your trading limit. Bid prices and trading limits are updated regularly and can improve over time as you build trading history.
How integrations help unlock your Pipe trading limit
Pipe aims to help you be more financially agile so you can grow your business on your terms, without the heavy manual overhead and paperwork that often comes with traditional financing.
That’s why Pipe’s trading platform integrates with popular billing managers, banks, and accounting platforms to make getting access to the capital you need easy.
But remember it’s not about cutting corners—it’s about efficiency. By securely connecting your accounts to Pipe, we’re able to bring together speed and responsible analysis to quickly provide you with a trading limit and access to the best possible bid prices.
What platforms and services integrate with Pipe?
Pipe connects directly to the banking software, billing managers, and accounting platforms most businesses use to manage payments, send invoices, reconcile accounts, track finances, and more. By securely connecting your accounts with Pipe, we can keep your trading limit and bid price up to date with no extra work on your part.
