Bare Now Using Tipalti Solutions Inc For Payments

I noticed this disclaimer in the e-mail I received from Bare:

"COMMENTS: IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Before applying or self-assigning, please note that our payment process is changing. We have recently upgraded to a partner payment provider, Tipalti Solutions Inc. in an effort to provide you with an even better payment experience. Tipalti is considered to be the world’s most powerful and professional payment platform. Any assignments performed during the month of March and beyond, will be paid via Tipalti. Additional information and registration instructions will be shared via email soon."

Has anyone ever heard of Tipalti Solutions Inc or used them in the past? What was wrong with Paypal or Direct Deposit or however they paid to cause the change? Are they just outsourcing their payments?

I received a check in the mail last week. Same way they have always paid. don't know if the Tipalti thing fell through?
I read that, too, and was wondering if anyone here had any experience with it.

It's starting with shops done in March, so anything before that isn't affected.

As much as I won't miss the paper checks I got from BARE, I'm not excited to give my personal information to yet another payment system.

I am not real thrilled about this I wonder what kind of kickback they got for using them!
Oh, love the email I just got saying, "You asked, we listened."
No, BARE. No one asked you to use a payment system few people recognize over Paypal. Stop acting like you did it for us. You did it for yourselves.
I agree that I haven't heard of Tiplati, but it is a large company with animpressive client base. I am copying the following paragraph from a recent article in TechCrunch. If you want to read the entire article, here is the link: [techcrunch.com]

"In 2020 so far, Tipalti has seen transaction volume on its platform balloon to $12 billion, up 80% from a year ago. It now has some 1,000 customers on its books, with a specifically strong emphasis on fast-growing tech companies. The list includes Amazon Twitch, Amplitude, Roku, Duolingo, GitLab, Medium, ClassPass, Toast, Automattic, Twitter, Business Insider, GoDaddy, Zola, Boston Globe Media, Noom, Roblox, Headspace, Fiverr, Vimeo, Stack Overflow, ZipRecruiter, AppLovin, Canva, Indeed and Foursquare."

Remember, every time you hand someone one of your checks you are giving them exactly the same information that these payment services ask for to set up payments to you. No access codes given out. So, what's the big deal ?

Poor customer service? Don't get mad; get video.
You're right, but the more places that information is sent the better the chances that it will be used maliciously.

According to the info included in the link in Bare's email, future paper checks will cost the recipient about $3 to issue, and Paypal payments will cost 2% of the total (max. $1 in the USA; max $20 international). Tipalti (sounds like excema medicine) handles all--paper, paypal, direct e-payments, wired payments, etc. Only e-payments will be free.
I think of fish every time I see that word..Tilapia..Tipalti...letter jumble game almost. Never heard of them.

I was worried at first, but it seems legit. As long as I don't have to accept PayPal and there is a free deposit option, I'm good.
Hello! This is your official BARE Communications Officer here to help provide some insights. smiling smiley

We decided to partner with Tipalti Payment Solutions because, through feedback surveys and lots of emails and phone calls (!), we saw how frustrating it was for evaluators when there was no easy way to track payments.

After an extensive research and proposal process, we selected them because of their top notch security, user-friendly platform, and ability to disperse a wide variety of payments.

As always, thank you so much for your insights! We're always here to help.
So how do we sign up or do we have to?

All I saw on their website was a place to request a demo of their services. In other words I was submitting a RFP.

Bare sent out an email with registration info.
The first time that Bare owes you money, Tipalti will email you with instructions. Until then, there is nothing to be done.

Do they still do DD?
I'm trying to register for Tipalti now, and there's no clear path to do so! The link in the email I got today isn't live, and when I copy and paste it into my browser, I got an error message saying that place doesn't exist!

Real-time update: I tried again as I was posting this, and lo and behold, I'm into the registration screen.

What's very frustrating, though, is that the instructions on their website don't give you a starting point! The first step doesn't tell you where to go to find the "payment details," the payee dashboard, or anything else. Sigh.

I was able to sign up for it. It was a quick, easy, and painless process imho.

Shopping Western NY, Northeast and Central PA, and parts of Ohio and West Virginia. Have car will travel anywhere if the monies right.
What a disaster. I got a notification from Bare that they paid my March money, but I can't log in to Tipalti. All I can find is a "payer" portal and when you use that, they tell you that if you are a payee, you need to use a different login portal -- but there's no way on that site to find out where that is!

March was the most active month I've ever had with Bare, too, and now I can't get at my money. I'm fuming.
I just signed up with them (in Canada). They sent me a registration link email because I was assigned an assignment with BARE. I did not have to provide banking info because one of the payment options was through Paypal, which most of my MSC payments go through anyway.

I got the notification too. And when I checked the bank account online, the deposit was pending.
I signed up with Tilapia when they sent the link. I received a direct deposit as I always have. It was not a problem.

I liked working for Bare but the car was jobs are a bust. The pay is $5-7. It ties up your money for too long. If you do 5 washes in a month you can tie up almost $100 of your own capital — not worth it.

Lol what? If you can’t wait until the 20th of the next month, you might need to do different shops. Some companies pay 60+ days out.
