Our Story

Sipree is a San Francisco-based digital payments provider focused on radically improving the speed, security and convenience of payments to customers and vendors. We were founded as an outgrowth of strategic planning at PayPal and offer the only Enterprise SaaS that streamlines payouts and provides consumers with unprecedented choice in their receipt of money. The result? Happier customers, more efficient payments, and reduced payment processing costs—all with little-to-no IT support needed.

What's In a Name?

The name Sipree comes from a species of sea snails in the family Cypraeidae. Also known as the “money cowry,” the shells of these snails were widely used as a medium of exchange in Africa, Asia and the Pacific islands until the late 19th century. We think of our name as a bridge between one of the oldest and one of the newest forms of money movement.


Sipree’s team of dreamers, experts and pragmatists all have long careers in payments, transaction processing and enterprise/cloud computing infrastructure. We hail from leadership roles at Amex, FiServ, Google, HP, JPMorgan, Microsoft, PayPal, Western Union, Yodlee, and too many startups to count.

We share a common belief that commercial payments are ripe for transformation as new cloud solutions finally deliver a digital payment experience that moves money at Internet speed and enterprise scale.
