For Employers

Payroll professionals are keenly aware of the inherent benefits of deploying an electronic pay program within their organization. Upon doing so, their employer can save money and resources associated with payroll processing and distribution costs while employees benefit with the peace of mind of knowing that their wages are accurately and consistently deposited into their personal bank account. Visa has created the Employer's Guide to Payroll Cards. The American Payroll Association and the National Consumer Law Center have collaborated on guidelines for payroll card programs.
