Gift and prepaid cards to be offered as payment options
May 7, 2019 (ATLANTA) – KyckGlobal, a new platform for streamlining contractor pay disbursement, has partnered with InComm, a leading payments technology company, to offer businesses with gig-economy workforces an additional form of payment.
InComm will expand KyckGlobal’s service portfolio by providing a stored-value card option. This would enable businesses to pay their workers through gift or prepaid cards, with funds being available the same day the work is completed.
“We’ve been asked by customers if we can fulfill gift cards as part of an incentive program and are thrilled to be able to offer these choices,” said Sam Wheeler, KyckGlobal’s chief revenue officer. “InComm has longstanding partnerships with more than a thousand brands, so our clients’ contractors can spend their earnings – seamlessly and immediately – just about anywhere they care to.”
“This new application of gift and prepaid cards further demonstrates how popular and convenient they are,” said Dave Etling, Senior Vice President and General Manager of InComm Digital Solutions. “Our partnership with KyckGlobal will allow us to introduce our products to a whole new set of customers.”
KyckGlobal also provides same-day compensation via ACH, PayPal and Cash through its partnership with MoneyGram. Its payment platform contains a built-in reporting and filing system for filing contractors’ 1099 forms with the Internal Revenue Service.
“It wasn’t that long ago that every worker was paid nearly every day for the work they completed. Having multiple payment flavors with multiple frequencies will be critical for businesses to bridge the gap between themselves and their contract employees,” said Wheeler. “In this expanding gig economy, we at KyckGlobal are doing everything we can to help businesses attract and retain the best talent.”
