A lot of these subs are on their phones, not really at a computer. They’re just go, go, go. I think the ease of getting an email if they choose to sign up for direct deposit is so quick and it’s less steps for them. That’s the biggest thing – making it easier for our subs. Because they’re not going to want to do a ton on their end. It’s super advantageous.
Our clients love to hear that we offer bank transfers. They’re blown away by it. They tell us that no one else they’ve interviewed to do their job offers it.
