In case you missed it, we just released a bunch of updates to the ‘My money’ page. The beta version is live now, so go give it a look and let us know what you think. The goal was to make it easier to do several things related to your money - like easily know when you’ll be seeing your next deposit to your bank, how big that deposit will be, and some updates to make it easier to choose when you’d like to use instapay. The first thing you’ll probably notice is that there’s a lot more information to read, quickly. You can now see how much to expect will deposit today, how much will deposit soon, and how much is in transit to your bank. Pending transactions and payouts have been split out into two different tables to make that even clearer. Bank account, debit card, and identity verification settings have all been moved to behind the gear icon in the top right of the page, to make room for a lot of new features that we’ll announce soon. The first of these? There’s now a place for you to fill out a form to put your name in to be part of the beta test for our card readers . They’re $59 each, allow you accept Apple Pay, Google Pay, and chip-enabled cards, all at the low rate of 2.69%. Go give it a look .
