Sean Safahi - CEO of Bold

About Bold:

Bold is the most comprehensive payouts platform, enabling businesses to manage and send payouts thousands of independent workers or suppliers at once. By integrating Bold’s straightforward API or by simply uploading a spreadsheet of payout information, what used to take hours of time is finished in just a couple minutes.

Bold

Using multiple payouts providers leads to more points of potential error and more accounts to manage, which means more time spent on payout management for both engineering and administrative teams. That’s why Bold provides ACH, wire, check, and PayPal support, along with the ability to send payouts internationally—the tools businesses at any stage need to successfully send payouts. And with one system of record, and one account to manage, hours of time are reclaimed each week.

Through a single integration with Bold, businesses streamline their payouts technology and operations, while getting the network and global coverage of multiple payouts solutions.
