The problem

Direct deposits might be the golden goose of consumer banking, but it’s not easy to switch.

Consumers rely on an outdated and highly manual process, making it an uphill battle to become a consumer’s financial app of choice.

Helping customers achieve meaningful results

After spending years trying to grow deposits, a top 5 neobank saw a 20% increase in direct deposit penetration in the first month with Pinwheel. We’ve seen uplifts as high as 75% for similar companies.

The average neobank sees an average direct deposit of $1,000/customer/paycycle, meaning even just 1,000 customer switches can yield $26M in deposits a year.
