Payfare Inc. announced that it is expanding its partnership with Stride Bank to offer additional real-time payment options to gig platforms and their workforces. Payfare and Stride Bank will leverage The Clearing House's RTP® network to deliver fast, secure payments to U.S.-based gig economy workers 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Payfare will be among the first to use the RTP network to support gig worker payouts. By connecting to the RTP network through Stride Bank, Payfare has the ability to support payments to bank accounts immediately with enhanced speed and security, providing more choice for its corporate clients and users. Payments over the RTP network settle within seconds, providing immediate confirmation and funds availability. Further, because the RTP network is always operating, payments can be sent and received after banking hours, on weekends and during bank holidays.
