"It's amazing to be able to get our payslips straight away, onto our phones.  No one can accidentally view it as it is personal and confidential. Before SmartWage, I was always looking for my paper payslip. Now, I can view it at any time."

On-Demand Pay

"SmartWage has been very helpful - we no longer have to worry about money during the month for mid-month emergencies. It has helped us reduce debt with interest. Before we had to borrow from loan sharks and be charged huge interest to survive during the month."
