Hey, we’re Clair.
We create financial products that employees love
Clair’s mission is to make every hourly worker financially free.
We believe that financial freedom is the first step to living a more empowered life. For us, that means:
- giving employees access to their wages, for free, the moment they clock out of work
- providing quality financial services without any high or hidden fees
- working with employers to promote financial inclusivity
The end of payday loans. The future of finance for hourly workers.
We are in the arena fighting for financial freedom
Given the right tools, everyone can build a bright and independent financial future
Finances don’t need to be complicated or scary
People fare better when nudged in the right direction
Employees who are financially free are better employees
Great employers offer benefits that improve their employees' lives
Transparency is the key to a fintech’s success
Fair financial services can be offered to everyone and be profitable

A transparent business model
Even in good times, we never charge fees to hourly employees in order to help them lead better financial lives. Here’s how we keep the lights on
We charge businesses a small monthly fee for the high ROI benefit that we are offering their employees
Whenever employees shop with their Clair card, Mastercard gives us a portion of the total transaction value
Where they go
We spend on the usual things that any business spends on: salaries, rent, developing the app, and more
We invest significantly in research and development to build the best technical products to help hourly workers
We borrow money and pay interest in order to finance the cost of advancing wages so your employees can access them for free
And the rest is our profit, which we re-invest in building new and better products for hourly employees
