New year, new features:
currency exchange, card filters, and more

Check out our Pricing page for the most up-to-date information.


We now offer currency exchange, sent directly from your Mercury account. Send payments in over 30 currencies at competitive rates with a 1% exchange fee (international USD payments will still be free).


If your company is exchanging over USD $200,000 a month, send us a note—we’d love to talk to you.

We’re just getting started with building features for our global customers. Just last month, our customers used their accounts to send money to more than 130 countries. Currency exchange helps us better support companies that send payments across the world every day—to their teammates, vendors, portfolio companies, and more.

📅 Mercury x Capchase


We recently partnered with Capchase for our virtual event, Growth Funding for SaaS Founders, where Immad Akhund (CEO & co-founder, Mercury), Miguel Fernández (CEO & co-founder, Capchase), and Jason Garcia (Head of Capital, Mercury) shared insights on how SaaS startups can find the right types of financing at different stages. Check out our key takeaways and watch the event video.


A photo of Jason Garcia, Mercury Head of Capital, with a quote of his from our Capchase event, which reads: "A lot of people have thought about alternative financing solutions as a replacement to equity, which I've always thought to be a little bit dangerous...[they're] complementary to both the founders, who are saving ownership in their company, [as well as] the shareholders and the investors."


🧑‍🤝‍🧑 Our $5M community round


In July 2021, we set aside $5M to allow our customers and supporters to join our $120M Series B equity round. Seven months later, we closed our round with ~2,500 new investors on our cap table, 75% of whom are customers. We shared our process, challenges, and learnings.
