  • While we wait for our first question, I wanted to share that we recently surpassed $1 million in job advances since launching the card, and we're full steam ahead to $2 million. If you have creative ways you've used the Xometry Advance Card to help run your business, I'd love to hear them!

  • For example, one partner recently shared with us that the Xometry Advance Card has become their go-to way to pay for truck fuel each week.

  • While the card is designed to help you pay for materials and supplies, it can really be used to fund any aspect of your shop -- office supplies, fuel, insurance ... even snacks and coffee for your employees.

  • Hi Dan, I have a few questions for you.

    Is there a limit to how much I can spend at any one time?

    Can I use the card to spend on non supplies items?

  • Hi Dan,

    How do payouts with the advance card work when there's multiple jobs accepted?

  • Thanks for the questions! The Xometry Advance Card creates advances of 30% of the value of your Xometry job, with a maximum of $7500 advance per job. You CAN have multiple advances of $7500 across multiple jobs. The daily spend limit is $25,000.

    As for your second question, YES! You can use the card anywhere Visa cards are accepted for items to run your business -- machines and tooling, fuel, insurance, rent, even lunch!

  • Hey Danny! When you accept multiple jobs, each job increases your available spend. It's important to note that we can't connect purchases to jobs when you accept multiple jobs because those purchases happen out of our system. So when we calculate your payouts in any given week, we do two things. First, we add up all of the jobs you're scheduled to be paid out. Then, we look at your card purchases that are at least 7 days old and we'll deduct those purchases from your payout. That's how we determine how much to send to your bank every week.

    In your Payouts tab on Shop Finances we break down each payout so that you can see how we come to the final number. We also recently made an update so that you can download a payout statement and keep it for your own records.

  • That's a wrap on today's AMA. Thanks for joining and if you have further questions on the Xometry Advance Card you can post them in this thread, or head over the Shop Finances section of the Xometry Community. Let us know what you would like to learn about for our next "Ask Me Anything" session!
