When will Pinch officially launch?
We are running a closed Beta product which you can get invited to if you’re following a creator that is part of our Beta. During 2021, we will roll the full and public product to everyone.
Why join the waitlist?
You will get in line to get launch notifications, and you’ll get an invite to our discord server where you can ask us anything. Also in our server - product previews, trailers, polls to hear your opinions and feedback, so please do come join our community and impact our next release.
Is Pinch Free? If yes, how does it support my chosen creators?
Yes, you can get a Pinch bank account and debit card for free, forever. Whenever you pay with your Pinch card, we use the swipe fees we get from the stores you’re buying at, and we funnel some of these fees to the creators you choose. Usually these fees would go into your bank profits, but with Pinch you’re given the power to empower. These are very small amounts of money for each of us, but as a community, the support can be meaningful for the creators. If you want to level up your game, you can always join Pinch Sub.
How does the rewards program work?
There are two ways to get rewards from Pinch. First, you may get a reward token from a Pinch Partner creator who you follow, and redeem the token into a specific reward at the Pinch Rewards Store. That’s nice, sorcerer, but you can also control your fate - You can join Pinch Sub, our premium card, and then you get points for every purchase, and you can redeem these points into rewards you like at the Pinch Rewards Store.
So what’s with Pinch Sub? What is that exactly?
Pinch Sub is our premium plan. Sub is a $5 monthly subscription to support your chosen creators, that also turns your Pinch debit card into a rewards card. Kinda similar support to what happens with Twitch subs or Youtube memberships, but at Pinch Sub you also get points for every purchase you do with your Pinch card, then you can get rewards you’d like at the Pinch Rewards Store. Yes, Pinch Sub is a debit card with rewards, that also supports your favorite creators with every swipe you do!
I don’t get it, is Pinch Sub a rewards debit card that's also supporting creators, or is it a debit card that supports creators and also has rewards?
Who stands behind Pinch?
We are a small team of passionate gamers that decided that robbing banks in real life is too extreme for us. So we picked a different path dealing with the banks, though GTA is still in our hearts. Join our quest, wizard, to move the power from banks to the community. Also, ask us anything at our discord server. Join the waitlist to get an invite to the server and to spread some good karma.
What can I expect from the Beta product?
Our Beta includes a bank account and debit card that support creators, and the Beta mobile app covers everything you would need in order to move money, pay with the Pinch debit card, scroll through transactions history, etc. You can choose the free plan or become a Sub, both are available at the Beta, which one would you choose?
Who can join the Beta and get a Pinch Beta card?
The thing with our Beta product is, we’re boarding one community at a time. So invites are sent to Beta content creators’ followers only, at this time. If your favorite creators are not part of our Beta program yet, you would have to wait before you can Swipe To Support™. In the meantime, you can join the waitlist to get launch updates.
Do I need to leave my bank?
No. You can transfer funds to your Pinch account using your account and routing numbers, and then pay with your Pinch debit card.
Will it affect my credit score?
No. Pinch’s products are not credit products, so Pinch does not affect your credit score, and a credit score is not necessary to get Pinch.
