A pay card is an easy and convenient way for employees to access their paycheck without having a bank account. The pay card is a Mastercard debit card. Every time the employee gets paid, their pay is loaded onto their pay card. They can use it immediately anywhere Mastercard debit cards are accepted and at all ATMs.

As an administrator, you can request a pay card while onboarding an employee. Alternatively, during the self-onboarding process, new employees will see an option to request a pay card.

If an existing employee requests a pay card and they have not self-onboarded (and don’t have an app.fingercheck.com account), you can add a pay card to their profile.

Note: To enable this service, please contact Fingercheck Payroll Operations.


How to request a pay card for an employee

  1. Log in to your Fingercheck account as an Administrator.

  2. Click the EMPLOYEES tab, and click the employee's number to open their profile.

  3. Under Payroll, click Direct Deposit.

  4. Click Add > Add Pay Card.


    The Add Pay Card pop-up window appears.

  5. If you have an existing pay card, enter the card’s ID number in the Enter Card ID field.

  6. If the employee needs a new card:

    1. Click Generate a New Card.

    2. In the pop-up window that appears, select the correct address or add a new address.

    3. Click Use Address to return to the Add Pay Card pop-up window.

  7. From the Calculation Type drop-down list, select one of the following options:

    • Flat: Select this option to specify an amount to be added to the card each pay period. Any remaining balance will be put into the paycheck or direct deposit.

    • Percent: Select this option to specify a percentage of the pay to be added to the card each pay period. Any remaining balance will be put into the paycheck or direct deposit.

    • RemainOnCheck: Select this option to specify an amount you would like to set for the paycheck or direct deposit each week. The remaining balance will be put on the pay card.

  8. In the Amount field, enter the amount or percentage you want to apply to the pay card.
    For example, if you selected Percent in the previous field and the employee wants to receive 50% of the pay on the pay card, enter 50. On payday, the pay card will have 50% of the pay, and the employee will receive a paycheck or direct deposit for the other 50%.

  9. Click Continue.

  10. Click OK in the Success pop-up window that appears.
    The pay card is added to the list of direct deposit accounts.
