the only way I want to be paid is @paidinfull

Mine always drops at about one minute past midnight.

Everyone in Sweden gets paid on the same day (25th of the month). I think mine goes in at about 1am

I’m always still up at midnight and check, and it goes in around half past.

This is the life of a poor man.

No way I could deal with that


Read something about this from Monzo recently because they introduced a feature where you can get paid a day early if you get your salary paid into an account with them. Something to do with the mechanism companies use to pay salaries actually informs the bank of all the amounts to be paid the day before and it’s up to the bank what time to process it between then and the following day, I think?

Yes BUT my wife’s maternity is is starting to dwindle and will shortly be nothing so there is no sweetness.
