Gig workers can now earn instant cash back with their Payfare cards

Toronto, January 25, 2022 – Payfare Inc. (TSX: PAY), a leading fintech powering instant payout and digital banking solutions for the gig workforce, today announced a new rewards program powered by Cardlytics (NASDAQ: CDLX). Payfare cardholders can now earn cash back when they shop thousands of local and national brands.

Partnering with Cardlytics, Payfare provides cardholders with an automatic, engaging rewards experience. Payfare cardholders simply pay for products with their card, as they do today, and the cash back rewards earned are automatically credited to their rewards wallet. Cardholders can also explore local and national offers in the app.

“Driving loyalty and financial empowerment is critical for the growing global gig economy that relies on instant access to their earnings,” said Marco Margiotta, CEO and Founding Partner of Payfare. “Our partnership with Cardlytics will enable gig workers to earn even more, with relevant cash back rewards on the things they need and regularly spend money on to be successful entrepreneurs.”

“We are excited to partner with Payfare to bring our rewarding offers to the members of the thriving gig economy,” said Farrell Hudzik, EVP, Financial Institutions, Cardlytics. “Payfare has already proven to be an integral partner to these entrepreneurs by powering instant payout. Adding the Cardlytics cash back rewards program will further drive loyalty while also putting cash back in the hands of their cardholders.”
