APS expands its paperless payroll solution by offering the AccelaPay® Card, a prepaid Visa® debit card which is loaded each pay date with the employee’s net pay amount. U.S. Bank issues the card, which offers employees the flexibility of a debit card, without requiring a checking account.
“It’s important for our customers to have an employee-friendly paycard option,” said Christian Valiulis, noting there are few fees associated with the card’s use.
AccelaPay Visa Cards can be used at ATMs for cash withdrawals or to make purchases everywhere Visa debit cards are accepted**. Cardholders are 100% protected against unauthorized purchases by Visa’s Zero Liability Policy*.
Users receive their monthly statements online and can track their purchases and balance through the AccelaPay website.
By partnering directly with U.S. Bank, employee enrollment has been reduced to a one-step process.
“We chose U.S. Bank because of its structure and ability to streamline the enrollment process,” Valiulis said. “Paycards are an increasingly popular option and we have made the process as easy as APS’s direct deposit and check printing services.”
