My earnings were paid externally. What does this mean?

Your employer can process payroll on a weekly, bi-weekly, semi-monthly, or monthly basis. At the end of their pay period, NowstaPay closes off unclaimed earnings to allow your employer to send payments to staff that have not Cashed Out via check or direct deposit. 

If you did not choose to Cash Out early, NowstaPay will move your earnings to the Paid Externally column. This means your employer will pay that amount via check or direct deposit at the end of the pay period as usual.


If you choose to Cash Out, NowstaPay will move your earnings to the Paid by NowstaPay column. This means NowstaPay has already paid you and that amount will be deducted from your paycheck at the end of the pay period.
