Pay in Advance - How to Access Your Earned Wages

What are your options for accessing cash quickly?

#1 Employer Loans - Not available to many

One option considered by many employed Australians is to seek a loan from their employers.

This option is typically far cheaper than some of the short term loan options in the market and has the added benefit of not having to place an additional burden on family and friends.

However, taking a loan from your employer has seen a decline in availability because of the additional management burdens placed on employers.

Your employer might be willing to provide you with a loan, but they still need to deal with issues such as:

  • The additional administrative burdens on the payroll department
  • The potential tax and or legislative requirements

Many of them don't want to deal with extra obligations, especially if the company has many employees.

#2 Payday Loans - Simply Too Expensive

The other traditional alternative to access quick cash was to use one of the available payday loan options.

Many people needing access to short term funds are increasingly avoiding this approach because of the inherent complexities such as high-interest rates, credit checks and the risk of borrowing more than you can service.

So what are your options if you don't want to use expensive payday loan options, hassle family and friends and your employer is not open to giving you a loan?

#3 Accessing Your Paycheck in Advance

To provide an option for those Australian employees who need to access funds quickly, MyPayNow developed our unique AI-driven platform which allows you to access the pay that you have already earned, in advance of payday.

That is, you can access your earned wages.

This solution removes your employer from the equation, so it's a win for them and you.

It is also free of the complexities and obligations inherent in the payday loan option.

What does “Access Earned Wages” mean?

Accessing earned wages means you can access your pay in advance of your normal payday.

You are getting access to the wages that you have already earned before payday so you can use your own money to deal with your cash shortfalls without having to borrow more than you can service.
