Everee launches Instant Pay to give workers access to payments instantly
By Edlyn Cardoza
Everee, a workforce payments platform upending the two-week pay cycle, announced its launch of Instant Pay, which allows companies to streamline payment operations and deliver earnings seconds after a worker finishes a shift.
“With the rise of contingent workers in the gig economy, expectations have begun to shift, and waiting two weeks for a paycheck is no longer an option,” said Brett Barlow, CEO of Everee. “Nearly 59 million professionals do gig work, representing 36% of today’s workforce. As payroll processes and technologies continue to mature to fit the needs of these workers, there’s no reason they shouldn’t be able to get paid as soon as their work is completed. Instant Pay just makes sense, and we are excited to bring this capability to our customers.”
Since its inception, Everee’s driving force has been to end the two-week pay cycle by empowering organisations with same-day ACH deposits and technology solutions, including flexible APIs and embeddable workforce payments, to pay workers daily. Everee continues to lead the industry in paying workers fast, and as the modern workforce evolves, having faster payment options is necessary. Now with Instant Pay, organisations that rely on contingent workers to move their business operations forward will be able to recruit and retain a strong workforce by offering the fastest payments possible – a major competitive edge, especially with talent shortages remaining at an all-time high.
While typical payment processes require manual approval before payments are distributed, companies that use the Instant Pay API can automate this step, allowing workers to cash out earnings seconds after finishing a job while eliminating manual, error-prone busy work. Additionally, Instant Pay can be embedded directly into an organisation’s workflow in one central location, allowing for a native experience that doesn’t require exiting or switching apps.
“Workers expect instant payment options from leading gig companies like Uber and DoorDash. Everee’s Instant Pay allows platforms to compete for the same workforce by paying people instantly, every day, including weekends and holidays,” said Piers Mainwaring, Chief Innovation Officer at Everee. “We’ve found that 68% of workers live paycheck to paycheck, and 23% can’t afford transportation costs to their job each day. Instant Pay means breaking up that cycle. It means getting them the resources they need to do their jobs. It means paying a delivery driver the moment they complete a drop off. It means giving people the money they’ve earned as they earn it.”
Instant Pay joins Everee’s robust suite of capabilities, allowing organisations to speed up and scale payment processes, automate onboarding workflows, and embed components into their own apps or platforms to deliver a streamlined worker pay experience.
