ADP has debuted Wisely Pay, a new digital payment option that employers can offer employees, particularly those without bank accounts.

Wisely Pay provides a variety of ways for employees to receive, spend and manage their money, including peer-to-peer transfers, instant pay and mobile digital wallets from Apple Pay, Samsung Pay and Android Pay. It originates from ADP’s acquisition of Global Cash Card last October.

Digital accounts, such as paycards and mobile wallets, have become increasingly popular, especially among millennials. A recent survey from ADP found that 47% of Gen Z and 31% of millennials said they would turn down a job if they couldn’t choose their payment method. In addition, 47% of millennials and 66% of Gen Z said that they have used a pre-loaded payment card in the past 12 months.

The Wisely paycard will be available in September. For more information, visit
