What does Today do?

Today was designed to serve up instant access to staff's gratuities. Plain and simple. So employers can pay out all credit and debit tips to the entire team instantly, without using cash. Now we do it for virtually any earning or wage that goes from employer to employee, including incentives, mileage, expenses and more. The money is directly deposited into their mobile wallet via the app, and they can spend their funds immediately using the card. No more waiting for their money 🙌

How will it benefit my bottom line?

When was the last time you looked for cost savings on your P&L? Did you notice the labour and expenses being spent on cash due-backs? If not, let's think about that for a moment. Leaving the business to pick up cash, counting it, dividing it, stuffing it in envelopes, coming on and off the floor to distribute it to the staff... It's all costing you. Hospitality businesses who make the switch are seeing thousands of dollars in savings on labour costs and supplies related to cash payouts.

If you’re using payroll:
You could be saving money for both the business and your staff by removing the need for source deductions and switching over to cashless payouts.

If you’re using checks:
Did you know that using checks to distribute tips means you are likely operating in a “controlled” tip environment? That could mean compliant challenges with the CRA. Learn more about tips and taxation here. And yes, time to make a change.‍

If you’re using e-transfer:
We don’t have to tell you that sending multiple e-transfers weekly can put a strain on your bottom line. Time for a cost-effective alternative.

Is my money secure with Today?

Yes. Your money is held in trust. We use bank-level security to encrypt and secure all of your personal information.

Sounds great, what’s the catch?

We want to put money your staff's pocket at the end of their shift. That’s why the Today platform is free for you, and the mobile app and card are absolutely free for your team. No fees to spend their money (just like cash). And if they need to cash out IRL, they can stop at one of our network ATMs for free. There's only a small fee if they need to transfer to an external account.
