(Public Beta) ISO Options Exercise on iOS app

We’re making an improvement to the iOS app to support ISO option exercises. We’d love your feedback to make this experience better, so please email us with your questions and comments around this beta release.

To begin, you will need:

  • An ISO option grant
  • To be a US resident
  • To link a bank account for ACH-based payments
  • To have an official signature tied to your account (you update it here on your computer)
  • To download the beta app on your iOS device

Once the beta app is installed, head to the option grant that you intend to exercise. If exercising is available, you can click on the blue “exercise” button to begin.

Confirm that you’re currently a US resident to help the platform guide you through your potential taxes correctly. Before exercising, it is recommended that you consult your personal financial advisor or tax professional to make sure exercising is right for you.

Once you’ve filled out all exercised details, you’re now ready to exercise. Before clicking “Exercise”, ensure that you read the terms of the exercise, review all linked documents, and agree to the withdrawal of funds to pay for the exercise.

After you submit the exercise request, the issuing company will approve the exercise request, which will initiate the funds transfer from your bank account to the company bank account. Lastly, the resulting certificate will be created, signed by the officers, then sent to you to accept. You’ll receive email updates from us as your option exercise progresses.
