Your questions - answered

IGsend is an easy to use, flexible and affordable instant payments solution. Unlike BACS which has a three-day turnaround time and can only be processed on working days, IGsend allows payroll teams to pay employees instantly at any time of day and any day of the year.

  1. Payroll managers create an account based on the number of transactions they need to make each month. (Check out our subscription breakdown here)
  2. Payroll managers upload payroll details to the IGsend system, such as data and funds
  3. A designated payroll manager approves the payroll and sets the date for employees to be paid – which can be any day of the year at any time
  4. Employees are paid by instant payment
  5. The money lands in the employee’s bank account instantly. IGsend issues a notification of successful payment.

IGsend uses Faster Payments technology to pay employees instantly. There are a number of benefits for using Faster Payments in the payroll process, including:

  1. Payroll Faster Payments allow you to pay employees instantly
    With Faster Payroll Payments, employees can receive funds into their bank accounts instantly as soon as payroll is processed by the employer. This is rapidly faster than BACS payment methods, which require 3 working days to be processed and for funds to land in the employee’s bank account.
  2. Payroll Faster Payments allow you to make adjustments to pay quickly
    See the instant outcome of payroll and quickly identify any errors with Faster Payroll Payments. Then, correct those payments and resubmit payroll on the same day, instead of having to wait another 3 days for BACS payments to clear.
  3. Payroll Faster Payments enable payroll teams to set unique payroll payment schedules
    Not only does Faster Payments in payroll allow you to pay employees instantly, it also lets you set your own payroll payment timescales to suit your business and employees’ needs. So, employees who pick up extra shifts to earn extra cash can get paid within minutes of finishing their shift, instead of having to wait weeks until the next payday.
