    Business Model

    Douugh is not a licenced bank, therefore it is not forced into operating a traditional balance sheet model which is typically reliant on competing on price through the offering of traditional deposit and lending products such as credit cards, personal loans and mortgages. Instead, Douugh operates as a software and services business, charging end consumers fixed and variable fees.


    Douugh has earned revenue from the government R&D rebate, Mastercard incentives, debit card interchange and the acquisition of brokered deposits paid to Douugh by its banking partner, Choice Bank.


    Within the next 12 months, Douugh will look to introduce a monthly subscription fee for the Douugh App consistent with the launch of its robo-advisory (Wealth Management) offering under the Douugh Wealth LLC subsidiary, and enhanced AI automation features to do with everyday budgeting and saving/investing.


    Douugh’s long-term goal is to adopt a platform business model by becoming a financial control centre for customers, fostering an ecosystem of partners within its own marketplace, from which Douugh will earn income from marketing fees, API fees and revenue share arrangements.

    SME banking

    Over time it is expected that Douugh will also transition into SME banking. This will see Douugh transfer across all of the key features outlined above, develop a web app and build integrations into key accounting platforms like Xero, Quickbooks and MYOB.
