As you’ll know all too well, implementing and managing global benefits consumes a huge amount of your time, effort and patience…let alone finding meaningful benefits. As talent-sourcing becomes increasingly competitive, failing to attract the right people – or losing the ones you have – is a very real problem.

If only there was a global employee benefits solution – with proven positives for employees – that HR and Recruitment specialists could deploy, rapidly and easily… 

…there is. It’s Pay On-Demand from CloudPay. Let’s talk.

CloudPay’s Pay On-Demand service – what’s in it for you?

As well as providing a highly valuable benefit to help build your teams (our adoption rate is a whopping 45% on average!), our on-demand pay can be a genuine financial lifeline for your employees.

How does CloudPay’s Pay On-Demand service work? 

Pay On-Demand can be provided as a standalone product, or as an addition to CloudPay’s Payroll and Payment services. 

Our Pay On-Demand solution is delivered through the CloudPay NOW mobile app and managed by our service teams. We have partnered with Visa to deliver our on-demand pay solution using card payment technology, dramatically reducing the time it takes for employees to receive their pay. 

Whereas other providers of Earned Wage Access use traditional banking technologies and virtual cards to make (much slower) payments, CloudPay and Visa’s innovative solution allows your employees to access the wages they’ve earned in a matter of seconds. 

1. Pay-to-card technology

We use our CloudPay NOW app as the vehicle to deliver your pay on-demand service and make instant payments directly to your employees’ cards.
We can do this for your entire workforce across the world – accurately and instantly – as a pay-to-card transaction via the card rails network. We have pioneered this payment service through our long-established partnership with Visa, utilizing their OCT (Original Card Transaction) technology.  
Leveraging Visa’s state-of-the-art global security and compliance controls, we make real-time, easily-traceable, push-mechanism payments across the single, secure, Visa Direct global network.

2. Collecting and storing card details securely

As with everything else we do at CloudPay, when it comes to your people’s card details, we take your data privacy and personal details extremely seriously. 
Card details are securely collected via the CloudPay NOW app through our integrated PCI DSS compliant Payment Service Providers (PSP), Checkout and Nuvei. Card details pass 3DS checks and are stored securely as tokenised entities, so only need to be collected once. 
Employees self-serve by entering their own card details and can easily make updates without input from your payroll or HR teams.  

3. Making payments

Payments are processed through our integrated PSPs Checkout and Nuvei, utilising Visa’s Original Card Transaction (OTC) technology.  Once an employee’s card is stored on the platform, we can process payments at the employee’s request from their earned wages via the app.
