Custom manufacturing leader launches payment card making 30% of job funds immediately available for partner manufacturing shops
GAITHERSBURG, MD (July 8, 2020) - Xometry, the largest global marketplace for custom manufacturing, today announced the launch of the Xometry Advance Card to its network of over 3,000 US-based manufacturing partners.
The card gives American manufacturing facilities in Xometry's network immediate access to 30% of the value of the Xometry jobs they accept up to $7,500 on each job. This provides partners with the opportunity to improve their cash flow, giving shops capital to use to buy materials, tooling, and other expenses needed for business operations.
"At Xometry, we're all about unleashing the capacity of American manufacturing. We want to do everything we can to help the small- and medium-sized American shops in our partner network succeed," said Randy Altschuler, Xometry Co-founder and CEO. "The Xometry Advance Card makes it easier for our partners to buy what they need to keep their shops growing without worrying about cash flow. Over time, we will also be adding opportunities for discounts and benefits on products relevant to manufacturing partners who are cardholders."
The Xometry Advance Card is a Visa payment card that has no fees, interest, bills, credit checks, or impact on the holder's credit rating. The card's spending limit is set automatically based on the work partners take from the Xometry job board. It can be used wherever Visa is accepted and if money on the card is not used, it will simply be returned to partners with the rest of their job payment. Current Xometry partners who sign up for the card this month will receive $100 upon the activation of their card.
The release of the Xometry Advance Card is a part of Xometry's upgraded Shop Finances Partner Portal, which features more frequent, invoice-less payouts that leverages Stripe's payment technology.
