Paymenow is revolutionising access to liquidity without compromising financial health
What is Earned Wage Access?
Earned Wage Access is a financial wellness offering to employees which allows them to access a percentage of their accrued wages before the end of their payroll cycle. It enables employees to unlock funds without the threat of a costly loan and with the added benefit of building savings and getting out of the risky financial cycle altogether.

Socially and financially responsible
Paymenow takes employees’ best interests to heart by encouraging in-app financial education through gamification. By taking employees on a financial wellness and inclusion journey through financial education, employees earn Paymenow points and advance through tiers to achieve greater access to already earned wages at discounted fees.
Tiering through financial education
Employees earn points by successfully completing education modules, financial questionnaires and credit checks.
A few good reasons to choose Paymenow
South Africa has 25 million active credit customers, and more than 10 million of them are behind on their payments. As such, the population of people looking for access to liquidity is enormous. Paymenow partners with big and small businesses in the mining, logistics, financial services, call-centers and other sectors that typically employ underserved individuals, to be able to reach low-income, salaried people. The total market size includes 11 million employed people in South Africa.
