most popular food delivery network, to enable real-time funds disbursement to their independently-contracted couriers across

Canada

. The new feature, called SkipTheDishes Fast Cash, is facilitated by Stripe’s Instant Payouts product, made available through Stripe’s financial institution partner and powered by Visa Direct, Visa’s real-time push payments platform, and is now live and available to tens of thousands of SkipTheDishes couriers across

Canada

.

SkipTheDishes facilitates thousands of deliveries made by independent contractors each month from over 30,000 restaurant partners in

“Visa Direct’s real-time funds disbursement capability allows funds to be available to individuals in minutes – including nights, weekends, and holidays – providing flexibility and choice for gig workers to access their earnings,” said

Brian Weiner

, Vice President & Head of Product, Visa Canada. “Faster access to money is critical during this time, and Visa Direct is uniquely positioned to help companies like SkipTheDishes provide this unique offering.”

Now with this new integration with Visa Direct, SkipTheDishes’ independently-contracted couriers who are Visa cardholders will be able to use Stripe’s Instant Payouts to gain real-time access to their earnings, as opposed to waiting seven days to receive payouts. By routing transactions through Visa Direct, SkipTheDishes can offer a quick, secure payment experience that sets them apart from competitors.

As a world leader in digital payments, Visa is committed to providing innovative payment solutions that can help on-demand economy businesses and workers meet specific payment challenges. The impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic on Canadians’ finances can make it especially challenging to manage payments during this time. That’s why Visa collaborates with valuable payment participants like Stripe, whose Instant Payouts feature uses Visa Direct to help businesses send money in real time to employees, contractors and service producers for wages, expenses and other business payment disbursements. In Visa’s survey of gig workers, 89% said they would sign up for real-time payments, and 66% said they would select gig companies who offer real-time payments instead of others, showing how fast, on-demand payments can be a powerful tool for gig companies
