Sage Payroll PayCard
Do you have employees who are without a bank account? According to industry research, more than 28 million people in the U.S. are unbanked or do not have a bank account. If you have employees who are unbanked, they will typically use a check cashing service and will be charged to cash their check – from one to six percent of their total paycheck. Now paycards offer a way for employers and unbanked employees to enjoy cost savings and convenience similar to direct deposit.

In fact, the paycard can be offered as an alternative to paper paychecks, which translates to cost savings for your business. The primary advantage of paycards is the immediate elimination of costs associated with producing paper paychecks, which can equate to more than $1 per employee, per pay period.

Sage Payroll PayCard offers this service. It is easy to implement and works seamlessly with your existing payroll solution.

The Sage Payroll PayCard works the same way as a direct deposit transaction, and requires no additional systems, software, or hardware. Your company can incorporate the Sage Payroll PayCard program into your existing process regardless of the payroll software or service you currently use. If your company offers direct deposit, you also can offer the Sage Payroll PayCard.

The Sage Payroll PayCard is a prepaid, reloadable, Sage-branded Visa debit card. The employeeís name is embossed on the card and an optional secondary card is available for qualified family members. With the Sage Payroll PayCard, you can offer your employees 24/7 access to funds. They even can receive their pay on time when they are out of the office whether on vacation, sick leave, or working remotely. With paycards your employees eliminate time-consuming trips to the bank. The Sage Payroll PayCard can be used anywhere debit cards are accepted, including ATMs, retail establishments, and for online purchases.

With the Sage Payroll PayCard, you can save money while offering your employees additional benefits and convenience. Please give us a call with your questions.
