The world’s gig economy is thriving, even in the midst of a global pandemic.
Gig workers often work remotely, and it’s been an advantage in the age of quarantine and social distancing. Many employers, however, seem to struggle with how to pay freelancers and contractors. Checks are often labor-intensive, and cash is not an optimal option for record-keeping purposes.
Enter the Paysign® 1099 Payout Card—the ideal solution for the gig economy. This easy-to-use reloadable card completely removes the cost and burden of cutting paper checks.
Retired business owner T.C. Branton worked with contractors on a weekly basis when his welding business operated in Las Vegas nearly a decade ago. During that time, he struggled with how to pay those professionals without the hassle of hiring a full-time bookkeeper.
“It all gets very complicated, very quickly,” Branton said. “I was a small business person. We had a bookkeeper of course, but the more freelancers we worked with, the more it was becoming apparent that we needed someone full-time just to handle the payment processes.”
According to Branton, a solution like the 1099 Payout Card would have solved his problems.
“I wish I had known about it then,” he said. “I don’t know why anyone who has to work with freelancers in the modern business atmosphere wouldn’t turn to a solution like the Paysign card.”
