The cost-of-living crisis: Project Inclusion speaks to SteadyPay

Share This Interview

Here in the next instalment of our interview series, ‘Cost-of-Living Crisis – How can the payments industry help?’, Project Inclusion’s Neil Harris sits downs with John Downie, the CEO and Founder of SteadyPay.

SteadyPay is a UK-headquartered fintech and credit provider seeking to alleviate the cost-of-living crisis among the gig economy by enabling businesses with embeddable finance products.

The cost-of-living crisis has arguably hit those with variable incomes the hardest, when a month-by-month financial outlook lacks any guaranteed foresight. This barrier is at the heart of SteadyPay’s mission, and here, John joins Neil to discuss his company’s unique position in enabling the drivers of the worldwide economy with better access to capital.

The conversation delves into how this vast proportion of the economy has been weighed down by the cost-of-living crisis, the improvements that access to credit desperately deserves and where SteadyPay sees its position in delivering the best outcome for all.

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

Need to change your e-mail address?

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
