Startup Profile

SpendAble

Melbourne, Australia

SpendAble have created a set of payment API's that improve the functionality of debit cards so that they meet the diverse preferences and needs of disabled people.

The problem we're solving

People with disability face many barriers that aren’t being addressed by banks and payment companies. They need practical features that enable them to navigate their barriers to the way they pay.

Our solution

A bespoke payments platform that integrates with global card software stacks to deliver extended utility to the plain old debit card. The payment platform then integrates with an app that is tailored to the payment needs of the disabled person.

Our differentiator

We move away from the one size fits all approach to banking/payment apps. We acknowledge that disabilities are diverse so they need diverse solutions.

Biggest Achievement

Currently soft launching our MVP on our own white label VISA network.
