What are General Payments used for?

We're in the business of getting people paid. Fast. The General Payments feature allows you to send funds to employees' Instant accounts in a flash using office.instant.co.

You can use this service to facilitate payments such as:

  • Bonuses/Incentives
  • Expense reimbursements
  • Delivery compensation to drivers (separately from tips)

This feature does not come as standard with all setups, if you do not currently have the General Payments feature and would like to add this functionality, please reach out to activation@instant.co and a member of our team will help you with setting this up.

Please note: All General Payments must be funded via an ACH transfer to the respective float account or through an increase to an existing PAD agreement.
