Apple Pay app on an iPhone in New York
This Oct. 8, 2019, photo shows the Apple Pay app on an iPhone in New York. Many paycheck advance apps and services let users borrow a small amount of their expected earnings, usually in exchange for a small fee. These advances are offered through your employer as a workplace benefit or directly to you through an app. In both cases, the employee decides when to take a loan and commits to paying it back on their next payday.
