Introducing Ampla Banking | The banking solution built for consumer brands
The unbundling of financial platforms has led to great products being built but at great complexity. At Ampla we're working to repackage financial solutions for consumer brands. Introducing our new banking platform. Take advantage of no fees*, seamless money movement, business debit cards and more!
At Ampla, we’re deeply invested in understanding the wants and needs of brands. We appreciate the challenges of navigating demand planning alongside consumer preferences, managing your budgets and sourcing working capital for dynamic demand amidst a challenging economic environment.
What makes things more complicated is that managing all these duties is often spread across multiple systems. When it comes to financial management, for instance, brands ideally want to have one primary business checking account, but they tend to open at least four on average.
They likely have another credit card account for marketing and ad spend. They rely on separate accounts payable software, which may or may not be integrated with their checking accounts, to make payments to their vendors. With this information across multiple systems, it can be overwhelming for brand founders and their teams to understand the current state of their cash flow and the financial health of their business.
This is where Ampla Banking comes in. We’re building an all-in-one financial management system designed for brands with a business checking account at its core. We’re dropping the need for separate bank accounts, multiple systems, and clunky integrations.
With Ampla Banking, the checking account is the financial nucleus of a business. Brands use it for routine operations every day, including making payments to vendors, accepting payments from clients, running payroll services, and so on. We hope that having a platform that combines all of the day-to-day needs saves growing brands time, energy, and money they can use for other areas of their business.
Here are some key aspects of Ampla Banking:
Unlike many other systems, we’ve removed the many fees that typically come packaged with a business checking account. We do not charge monthly account fees, ACH and wire transfer fees, excess transactions fees, or annual fees from a debit card. You won’t find any hidden charges either.
Seamless money movement
Ampla offers several ways to deposit and withdraw funds, including checks, ACH, and domestic wires.
Checks. A written and signed instrument directing a bank to pay a third-party a specific sum of money.
Free Automated Clearing House network (ACH). An electronic funds transfer between institutions.
Free Domestic wires. A form of wire payment that takes place between two institutions within the same country.
Business debit card
With Ampla Banking, you can feel empowered to seamlessly generate and issue cards, set spend controls and manage employee spend. Create unlimited virtual cards for easy vendor management.
Complimentary bill pay
We’re offering a free bill pay solution to help owners and operators streamline their accounts payable workflow. With Ampla Bill Pay, users can easily upload invoices, pay bills via ACH or domestic wire, and keep track of all bills and bill payments in one place. In addition, users have the ability to pay from their business checking account or Growth Line of Credit (if qualified). Current QuickBooks Online users can also choose to sync Bill Pay with their QuickBooks Online account to unlock auto reconciliation, helping you save more time from manual accounting tasks (Netsuite integration coming soon).
All deposits within your Ampla account are also FDIC insured. As stated on the FDIC website: “No depositor has ever lost a penny of insured deposits since the FDIC was created in 1933.”
Ampla Banking makes FDIC insurance a priority, covering up to $250K in deposits.
Path to Growth Line of Credit
We’re constantly looking for new ways to bring accessible financial solutions to emerging and growing brands. With the release of business checking, we’re also unlocking a path to our Growth Line of Credit when you need or are in the position to do so.
As your business evolves and grows, we'll proactively let you know when you're qualified for our Growth Line of Credit. And since our team provides a proposal quickly, you can feel confident in knowing you will have our support in an instant.
