Trend Highlight – DailyPay is Exploding
DailyPay lets employees get paid early and charges a $1.25 to $2.99 fee per payout request, depending on whether they want their funds the next day or immediately. The startup is based around the idea that the majority of U.S. businesses pay employees every two weeks for work they do every day and that this puts most workers in a tough spot.
With nearly 80% of Americans living paycheck to paycheck, DailyPay can help employees avoid late fees, payday loans, and other potholes. DailyPay, which has nearly 1M users, is betting that less anxious employees will lead to less turnover and consequently a higher bottom line.
One challenge the startup ran into — in fact, the same problem Venmo solved earlier — was helping users get over the stigma of requesting money. Back in 2015, Venmo changed the payment request descriptions to default to emojis. This made the request more casual and comfortable, causing the company to see an increase in payment requests.
