A major related segment of fintech is digital payments. The rise of digital payments came into the spotlight once e-commerce began to take off. E-commerce became largely popular due to the fact that consumers could purchase products on their phones or computer from anywhere as opposed to stepping into a brick-and-mortar store. Now e-commerce sales are continuing to grow exponentially each year as consumers opt to shop online. Moreover, the technology also allows vendors and businesses to issue disbursements and refunds at a much faster rate. Overall, the improving accessibility and the rising acceptance of such solutions from corporations is further propelling the industry growth. Furthermore, the increasing proliferation of smartphones is expected to assist in driving the overall industry. And, according to Transparency Market Research, the global smartphone market is expected to reach USD 1.50 Trillion by 2026 while the global smartphone volume is projected to reach 3.28 billion.

XTM, Inc. (CSE:PAID) (OTC:XTMIF) announced yesterday breaking news that it plans to, "launch a direct deposit program to all of its Today™ Card Holders. The Today program has been adopted and rolled out to thousands of hospitality, personal care and food delivery staff through their employers as a way of eliminating cash from the gratuity and earning disbursements ecosystem.

As part of the Company strategy to deliver micro-credit, this direct deposit option will allow users to opt-in to have their wages direct deposited to their Today Mobile wallet and garner an increase in the amount available for overdraft. The Today Mobile app will allow users to print or email a void check whereby they can deliver a request to their employer to have their paychecks also deposited to the Today Mobile wallet. Depending on the frequency and amount of deposits, opt-in users will have access to various levels of overdraft from $20 - $250, for a nominal monthly fee.

The product name of XTM's micro-credit program is Moretoday.

'Our Today users have spoken and with overwhelming demand they have asked for a solution that provides them with short term access to funds through overdraft protection' said Marilyn Schaffer, CEO, XTM. 'Having visibility to funds flow and first access allows XTM a unique opportunity to provide a very inexpensive and low-risk solution for our quickly growing Today Card user base.'"
