Employees Asking for Cash Advances? Consider This

avatar Tate Hackert

Tate is the brain behind ZayZoon, developing the idea of providing access to funds before payday, in 2013. He feels gratified knowing “we get to improve the financial health of people each and every day.” One of his favourite ZayZoon experiences involves a business trip to Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania where he helped film a Holiday Inn Express testimonial video. Wearing a ZayZoon shirt at the local Walmart, someone saw Tate and exclaimed, “Hey, ZayZoon! I use that!"

Chances are you have given an employee an advance on their pay and if you haven’t, it may just be a matter of time. Employee advances are something that 13 percent of employers give quite regularly to help support the ever-growing paycheck to paycheck problem 78% of Americans experience.

So, What is an Employee Cash Advance?

An employee cash advance or a payroll advance is something you as an employer can provide to employees to help them smooth out their cash flow. Typically, an employee would request a cash advance from your payroll department with the intention of having the advance repaid on the next paycheck. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always go as planned.

That’s Why We Made ZayZoon, To Help the Employer and the Employee

Reconciliation of advances and trying to track down employee payments and notifying your payroll department of deductions isn’t something you should have to worry about. Unfortunately, many employers choose to take on this burden and in some cases, end up out of pocket for employee advances. That’s right, while you are working hard to reconcile payments and keep track of which employee owes you what, chances are you have overextended someone and the risk of them quitting and leaving you with the bill is very real.

ZayZoon is The FinTech solution that stands to reverse the debt problem millions of Americans face on a daily basis.
