Blazing the trail for payment innovators since 2015.

Who we are.

Episode Six provides a next-generation technology for creating truly innovative financial and payments products for consumers and businesses.

Our proprietary system was built from scratch using advanced, patent-pending technology—and offers unparalleled product configurability, accelerated speed to market, and on-demand product management.

We provide a clean canvas for financial institutions, fintechs and other businesses to create new digital payment journeys that are not beholden to legacy systems or third parties to implement. Licensing our software provides total access to product capabilities that can be configured and customized in any conceivable way through 550+ APIs.

Our platform was developed on a single code base and is extensible and compatible for use anywhere in the world—with easy installation and integration. We are not an app, card, or service. We’re the backend infrastructure that powers new, hyper-connected, digital payment experiences, for consumers and businesses alike. We help payment innovators, innovate.

How we came to be.

As our culture of on-demand digital products and services really began to take hold in 2015, co-founders John, Chermaine and Futeh saw the limitations of legacy payment systems and wanted to build something that could keep pace with the new expectations of businesses and consumers alike.

All were longtime veterans of the fintech and payments industry with the expertise and wherewithal to develop a platform that could enable better, more connected payment experiences.

Episode Six was born with help from venture funding and major investments by HSBC, SBI Investment Co. and Mastercard. We currently operate in Austin, TX, London, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Singapore.
