For years and years, we as people have kept to the tradition of how we get paid; work, work some more, work again, and keep working until payday rolls around and we can actually enjoy the rewards of putting in our time. It can be hard to wait so long until you actually receive the money you deserve every day.
This is where Activehours comes in, a very neat and innovative way to get paid way before our payday comes along. Does this sound crazy? Sure, but it’s true.
Activehours connects with your bank account and where you work, and you take a snapshot of your time sheet for the day or the week, send it in to Activehours and then money is automatically transferred to your bank account whenever you want. You can cash in all your hours worked, or only a few if you wish. The app does not charge you at all or put interest on your transfers, but gives you the option to leave a tip. It’s up to you.
The app itself is very sleek and professional looking. Navigation is simple, and it was very easy to understand all the areas of the app (there really aren’t that many). Establishing connections is very secure (they use 256-bit encryption to protect confidentiality of information) and the app will send a couple test transfers to your bank account to see if everything is working. Of course, the test transfers are empty and contain zero money.
The app is available to hourly workers as well as Uber and Lyft drivers that have direct deposit set up with their employer. The maximum amount you can cash in per day is $100 but can increase the more you use the service and tip the app.
Activehours announced a new feature today called Lightning Pay, where cash-ins can transfer to your bank account in seconds including nights and weekends and marks a new era for the paycheck- On-demand pay.The service is now offered in beta to select users on the Activehours mobile app and is only available for certain banks that support it, so I haven’t gotten to test it out yet.
This app is a really convenient way to get paid when you want to rather than waiting awhile for payday. As a college student, two weeks can seem like forever as I wait for my paycheck, so this app has been helpful for grabbing twenty bucks in time for the weekend. I urge you to try the app out like I have and let us know how it’s treated you so far!
