About Earnin:

Every year, while Americans wait for their paychecks, more than $1 trillion of their hard-earned money is held up in the pay cycle. As a result, they accumulate over $50 billion in late and overdraft fees and turn to high-interest loans.

Our financial system doesn’t work for people. But Earnin does.

Earnin is an app that lets people get paid the minute they leave work, with no fees, interest, or hidden costs. Users simply tip what they think is fair, and receive their money in their bank account instantly.

Our team is bound together by a desire to level the financial playing field. We are a Series C funding from top-tier investors including DST Global, Andreessen Horowitz, Spark Capital, Matrix Partners, March Capital Partners, Coatue Management and Ribbit Capital.
