Instant Payouts offer the ability to pay a freelance contractor, gig worker, or marketplace vendor immediately after receiving the product or service. The major credit card companies Visa and MasterCard offer push to debit card payment options. Consider you are an independent home remodeling contractor who uses an online service platform that connects you to residential property owners who want work done on their houses. The platform handled the marketing to get the homeowner's attention for you and take payments directly from them for the services rendered.
