About Gerald

Paying bills sucks. It sucks even more for about a third of Americans living paycheck to paycheck, and struggling to pay bills on time. About 100 million Americans are at risk of paying overdraft fees if they auto-pay their bills, and are forced to manually log into and pay up to 10 biller accounts each month. Why are so many people wasting their time and energy manually paying bills to avoid overdraft fees? Because they are not using Gerald!

Gerald is a Y Combinator-backed technology company based in New York. Our platform combines fintech, payments, and big data to create an empowering and rewarding user experience for making timely bill payments.
