How to pay with Instahire?

Apart from instapay eliminating the need for payroll, timesheets or rostering, employers have less stress for the following reasons :

    • Thanks to our geo-location feature, staff will only be allowed to sign in upon arrival at your workplace location. Instahire will send you a confirmation request enabling you to start the shift.screenshot_20171013-161009
    • All our instapay payments take place through the app upon completion of  the shift and appears in staff’s account on the Thursdays of the following week.
    • To ensure there’s a sufficient balance on your credit card to pay for an instahire job , instapay does “freeze” the amount for wage payable + two hours just in case covering for any job extension. If the shift takes place as planned, the employer’s account gets charged as normal. And in the unlikely event of cancellation, the frozen amount is unlocked automatically.
    • Payments are transferred through Stripe or PayPal which allows transactions to take place over the internet by focusing on state-of-the-art fraud prevention in online payment systems. Be rest assured that the transactions are secure.
    • Should the employee fail to show up time or does not fulfil his/her commitment, you will be able to cancel the job and will not be charged. Cancellations occur rarely and if they do, the jobseeker gets a penalty impacting on the profile reputation. Every jobseeker gets an SMS reminding of the job 24 hrs and 3 hrs prior to Instahire job start.
