VTB clients with a salary contract will now get access to PayDay from Mail.ru Group – this service offers flexible options when it comes to their compensation. For instance, the service allows the employee to see how much they have earned this far and wire their earnings to their card without waiting for the actual pay day.

PayDay allows the employer to wire an advance payment on the currently earned compensation for the time the employee has worked since their latest payment. At the same time the company stays true to its standard procedures of salary payments and works in line with the respective laws. The employer can set a cap on the percentage that an employee can request as advance payment.

For every transaction PayDay charges the employee a fixed commission regardless of the sum. However, the first salary clients to sign up will receive a special offer: they can withdraw money via PayDay twice per month commission-free for the first 18 months.

“VTB is one of the market leaders when it comes to salary services, and this is why it is especially important for us to maintain a personalized approach to our clients and cater to their needs. More than 7 million people today have their work compensation wired to our bank. Having the ability to have your compensation wired to you when you need it is a convenient option for household budget planning. We believe the service will be especially useful for workers with flexible hours, like teachers, constructions workers, hospitality and catering employees, and many others. We have currently implemented the first part of this project, and by the end of this year we will scale it to a broader range of our bank’s salary clients,” said Garif Romashkin, Head of Salary Projects at VTB.

“We are seeing increasing demand from companies and employees alike. I am confident that PayDay will make the bank’s salary projects more appealing to clients. Partnering up with VTB is an important step for our development, opening up new doors for future growth,” said Sergey Molchanov, PayDay founder and Head of Development and Integration at Mail.ru Group.
