ABOUT STOCKPILE

Stockpile is the easy and affordable way to buy stock. Stockpile's mission is to simplify investing. A significant  percentage of the population has never had a chance to own stock because it’s intimidating and expensive, but it doesn’t have to be that way! At Stockpile, we’ve broken down the barriers to stock ownership by offering fractional shares of more than 2,500 companies such as Amazon, Apple, and Disney to name a few. With fractional shares, you can buy as little as $5 of Amazon stock even though 1 share costs more than $3,000. And, we invented the world’s first gift card for stock which can be found at major retailers and our website.
Based in Palo Alto, Stockpile is venture-backed, and our team comes from companies like PayPal, Intuit, VISA, and Ally. We’ve been featured in the Wall Street Journal, CNBC, Consumer Reports, and many others. We’re building a team of exceptionally talented people to join us on our mission, and would love to talk to you!
Stockpile simplifies investing.
