These are just some of the reasons why daily pay type solutions are gaining populating. We call it the “uber effect”. Uber and Lyft drivers can get paid up to 5 times a day. And those employees are talking to their Gig-economy friends who are asking their own employers for a perk like that.

And the research and early impact studies don’t lie. 

  • Applicants are willing to take on average a 13% reduction in pay if they got paid daily. 
  • Early Access to earned wages decreases turnover by 40% and increases recruitment by 30%. (source: 
  • 8 out of 10 hourly employees say that receiving their pay before payday would help them with financial security.
