PALO ALTO, Calif., Oct. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Activehours, the company that helps people get their pay when they want it, today announced it has integrated with the new Uber® driver API to give driver partners quick access to their earnings.
"Many drivers choose Uber because they want to be their own boss and get work at the touch of a button. It's work that fits around their life, and not the other way around. We couldn't be more excited that innovative companies like Activehours have integrated the Driver API to help make the Uber experience more rewarding for everyone who drives with Uber," said Chris Saad, Head of Product, Uber Developer Platform.
With this integration, Uber drivers who have the Activehours app can access pay as soon as they earn it, instead of waiting for the next pay cycle. Additionally, while drivers previously had to submit screenshots to verify information to access payment, with the new API, the information is shared with Activehours with drivers' permission through the app, and drivers can get paid instantly.
"We believe in a future where anyone has the ability to access their pay when they earn it," said Ram Palaniappan, Activehours' founder. "We're thrilled to be one of the first to integrate with the new Uber Driver API and help make it as easy for drivers to get their pay as it is for riders to get from one place to the next."
Activehours gives users more power and flexibility in how they're paid compared to the traditional bi-weekly pay cycle. Anyone can download the app and sign up for Activehours, which is already working with people from over 10,000 companies. Activehours is community supported, meaning people decide what to pay based on what they think is fair and what they can afford.
Activehours is revolutionizing the way people get paid and making money work better for everyone. Instead of being stuck in the traditional pay cycle, Activehours lets you access money you've already earned when you need it. Founded in 2013, Activehours is driving consumer-empowered finance through mobile technology by freeing up more than $1 trillion held up in America's pay cycle.
