Fuego by Fourth is an on-demand payment app that allows employees to draw a portion of their earned pay and tips before payday. Fuego can help workers meet their financial goals and develops solutions to help employers develop a more optimistic, more engaged, and more productive workforce.
Earned Wage Access
Employees can draw up to 50% of their earned funds after completing a shift, which is deducted from net pay at the end of a pay period like other post-tax calculations, at no cost to the employer. And because Fuego integrates with HotSchedules, every time an employee logs in to check their schedule for the week, they can instantly get a view of their earned wages that are available for immediate draws.
Tip Pay Out
75% of consumers prefer to pay at restaurants with a credit or debit card over cash - so why should you bear the burden of paying out tips in cash? Fuego’s tip pay out solution reduces an employer’s dependency on cash by automating the tip payout process and providing employees with flexibility and choice in payment.
Fuego Visa® Card
To directly help unbanked or underbanked workers, Fuego offers the Fuego Card to give on-demand pay1 customers a trusted and convenient source for debit transactions. Wage draws can be made to the Fuego Card at zero cost, and the Card can be used for any number of financial transactions. There are no inactivity fees, no cost to set up, no fees associated with wage draws, and employees can access their pay up to two days early2. Plus, the Fuego Card is protected by Visa’s Zero Liability Policy.
