This is consistent with PaassPay ‘s efforts to empower our service partners. The aforementioned is operationalised into our pricing structure. All partners’ hourly earnings after accounting for job-related costs are checked every month and paid the differential within 7 days if it is found that any partner falls below he hourly living wage threshold.
