Many years ago there were only three payment methods of paying US employee's cash, check and direct deposits. Today, many industries, retail, hospitality, healthcare and public and private sectors have adopted another method of paying their employees by using the Electronic pay card method. Payroll pay cards increase productivity and allow the employees immediate access to their funds.
