Helping meet the demands of the freelance community

Global freelancing platform Upwork is on a mission to help people have better lives. To help fulfill its mission, the company used Visa Direct, Visa’s real-time push-to-card solution, to implement push-to-debit payments to send freelancers the money they were earning through the platform in real-time*. Now, freelancers can access their money in 30 minutes or less*, shortening the normal 3–5 day wait time. Adoption of the new “Instant Payouts” offering grew rapidly after implementation.
