Payroll & Gig Economy

Manage and Payout Tips, Commissions, and Expenses Around the World

Drivers, bike couriers, taskers, independent contractors – a new global workforce has emerged from the gig economy that demands fast and simple ways to get paid.

But how do you pay an expanding global service industry, accommodate the unique circumstances of different gig workers’ needs, and do it all quickly and painlessly?

For companies with a dispersed workforce or salesforce, customized Visa and Mastercard prepaid cards and virtual cards continue to be popular and effective methods for paying employees on the spot. With branded payouts and customized user experiences including virtual and multi-currency wallets, you can ensure your workforce gets access to their funds instantly without the cost and hassle of cheques, cash, EFT/ACH, or wire transfers.

Update and Streamline Payroll for Speed, Cost Savings, and Reliability

Most gig economy marketplaces and platforms rely on a patchwork of third party integrations and service agreements to payout their workforces. This ultimately leads to brand inconsistency, customer support issues, and user experience compromises that cost money down the road.
