The Pay Card Jump

Pay Cards are predicted to make a 56% jump from 2023 to 2028 with growth being driven by increased R&D spending by leading and emerging players. Innovative advancements such as Earned Wage Access (where cash-strapped workers can now receive a portion of their wages before their usual payday) and universal direct deposit features will lead to a massive decrease in paper checks being issued
