No. We do not charge interest. ZayZoon is committed to helping employees access their wages, when they need it. We want to help our customers break free from predatory, high interest lending products like payday loans, overdraft fees and high interest credit cards.
How much of my wages can I access today?
ZayZoon encourages employee financial health by recommending that you wait until you’ve reached the $200 daily maximum before requesting a payout. This way you pay less fees and get the most out of each dollar. This is also why you must have a minimum of $20 available to request a payout. Our flat fee of $5.00 per transaction is a simple way to track how much you’re spending on fees.
