Credit Cards

Card issuers face significant challenges as they deal with fintech upstarts, alternatives such as BNPL, and cyclical pressures. Traditional credit assessment and repayment methods are losing their competitiveness. Highline gives issuers superior ability-to-pay information and automates payments, resulting in expanded approvals, reduced losses, and delighted cardholders.

Lenders and billers using payroll-linked payments see a 2/3rds decrease of non-repayment for the average working customer.

Lenders and billers have healthier relationships with customers because both have visibility of customers’ income.

Customers perform, on average, as if their credit score were 80 points higher, lifting about 40MM people out of subprime.

Lenders can offer loans that are generally 25% lower-priced with the same level of risk as conventional repayment methods.

Customers enjoy simplified money management as required bills paid first and 'free to spend' money in their checking account.
