About

Everyone hates the F word- that's right, finance. But Stockpile wants to help you conquer your fear of the market.

Stockpile offers fractional shares so you can invest the amount of money you want without buying a whole share. Are you sure you can afford NOT to invest?

    Pros: 

    This looks like a fantastic product

    Cons: 

    It is not obvious that it is US-only

    I went through the whole signup process, and it was only after they presented me with account information fields that I realized I could only input a US ZIP code. This is common with US startups, and it's really frustrating; it's not often they consider signups from outside the country. If it did mention that it was US-only somewhere, it was not obvious.

    Pros: 

    Buy the _amount_ of stock you want in _dollars_. As much or as little. It's a simple idea whose time has come.

    Cons: 

    Would love to see them add tax-advantaged accounts soon.

    I've been using Stockpile for about 6 months. I love hearing about some public product launch, thinking, "That'll do well", and then being able to buy stock in that company. It super easy. And the trading fees are totally reasonable at $0.99 per trade.

    Pros: 

    Easy to own stocks by the dollar, not whole share when you cant afford a $990 share of amazon and google stock. And I can invest in Bitcoin!

    Cons: 

    I want to arrange my stocks in a preferred order since my portfolio is building.

    I like getting my non-finance savvy friends into investing by gifting them $5 of free stock so they can learn about investing. If you want to try it out - ping me and Ill give you the code for $5 free stock.

    Pros: 

    Buy blue chip stocks 1000+ companies for any dollar amount,

    Gets kids and teens started investing with custodian accounts

    Cons: 

    it does not allow investing on recurring/auto-pilot

    Stockpile is the easy and affordable way to start investing for your future. With Stockpile, you can buy fractional shares of ETFs as well as stock in publicly-traded companies. Rather than buying an entire share of stock, you can get just the amount you want. This means you can buy $25 of Amazon stock even though one share costs about $1000.

    Stockpile has also invented the world’s first gift card for stock! For the first time ever, you can buy $25, $50, and $100 Stockpile gift cards off the gift card rack at stores like Target, Kroger, and Safeway, or send e-gifts from their app.

  • Pros: 

    Stockpile stole my account

    Cons: 

    It‘s a Fraud

    I had to file a litigation and SEC complaint after Stockpile unlawfully locked my account.

  • Pros: 

    Fractional shares, able to buy stock by the dollar instead of by the share, fun to learn more about investing, gift cards of stock

    Cons: 

    Real time trading

    Stockpile is perfect for people who are looking to diversify their portfolio and buy stock by the dollar. Low monthly fees and the ability to buy stock via PayPal or Apple Pay are huge bonuses.
