“Faster access to money is a universal need among small businesses and the people they employ,”
“By making financial services available across the QuickBooks platform when and how small business owners and their employees need them most, we unlock even more benefit and value for our customers and greater opportunities for them to achieve prosperity.”Alex Chriss, EVP and General Manager, Intuit QuickBooks Small Business and Self-Employed Group.
QuickBooks Get Paid Upfront
Get Paid Upfront is fast, seamless, and works on a business owner’s schedule. Small businesses still wait an average of 29 days to get paid and 64% have outstanding unpaid invoices after 60 days.
With Get Paid Upfront, small businesses now have the ability to apply for an upfront advance of funds from one or more qualifying invoices, up to a total of $30,000, in just a few clicks. Customers pay one flat fee of 3% per financed invoice and invoices are financed interest-free for the first 30 days. There are no additional ACH or credit card transaction fees charged to the small business owner when a customer pays the invoice through QuickBooks Payments within the first 30 days.
Get Paid Upfront is designed with simplicity and speed in mind. The customer experience is integrated end-to-end, with eligibility, funding, and repayment all happening directly through the platform. Get Paid Upfront delivers faster access to funds while eliminating burdensome processes small businesses typically face with third-party invoice financing solutions. Invoice proceeds are funded directly to the small business owner while their customer sees nothing different and pays as they usually would through QuickBooks Payments.
QuickBooks Early Pay
QuickBooks Early Pay is the newest feature within their Online Payroll designed to meet the needs of small business employees by making access to money available between paydays. Nearly 40 percent of Americans say they would struggle to pay an unexpected $400 emergency expense. But with Early Pay, in just a few steps, an eligible employee will be able to apply for funds personalized for them based on their pay history to help offset unexpected expenses or ease financial stress. Employees can choose to receive those funds instantly or within 1-2 business days. Early Pay will be included in Online Payroll at no additional cost to employers, with no impact on their books or payroll.
Early Pay, available soon, reflects their commitment to not only meet the needs of small business owners with access to full-service payroll capabilities but to also provide employee benefits that positively impact their financial health and well-being.
Both Get Paid Upfront and Early Pay leverage their expansive financial services expertise, including in payments, payroll, and access to capital:
- Last year, QuickBooks processed $91 billion in payments volume, and $1.5 trillion of invoices.
- One in 5 small businesses use QuickBooks Payroll, with a total volume of $232 billion.
- QuickBooks Capital has facilitated more than $1 billion in loans to small businesses since 2017.
By integrating critical offerings across the platform, QuickBooks is able to unlock faster and more seamless access to earnings for small businesses and their employees.
Intuit QuickBooks has partnered with WebBank, the lender of both the Early Pay and Get Paid Upfront products, to offer Early Pay in the coming months and launch Get Paid Upfront, which is currently available to eligible QuickBooks small business customers nationwide. This partnership will help expand the reach of both these capital-focused fintech solutions, combining WebBank’s expertise in innovative lending solutions with Intuit’s legacy of money movement leadership.
