Comdata is the second largest commercial issuer of Mastercard in North America and a pioneer of payroll cards. We help thousands of clients build world-class electronic payroll programs.


Comdata has a nearly 50-year history of creating innovative payment technology for businesses. The company was a leading pioneer of payroll cards dating back to 1991, and provides the world’s leading businesses with superior workforce payment solutions.

The Comdata payroll card makes life easier for both administrators and employees. Whether you’re moving to 100% electronic payroll or need a way to decrease the administrative burden on your payroll staff, we’re here to help.
A payroll card offers Ceridian clients a way to quickly issue wages to employees electronically directly from Dayforce, without producing and distributing a paper paycheck. Your employees can then make free withdrawals at more than 55,000 ATMs or use the card to make purchases anywhere Mastercard® is accepted.  

Easy Program Administration

  • Native integration to Dayforce. The automated, integrated workflow means Dayforce users can quickly implement a payroll card program without changing their existing processes or learning a new system. 
  • Multiple options to easily issue cards to employees. Cards can be personalized with employee names and mailed to worksites or employee addresses. Or generic instant-issue cards can be kept in stock at work locations. 
  • Instant loads. Comdata’s program allows administrators to instantly load funds to payroll cards directly from Dayforce for off-cycle, emergency or termination payments. Comdata extends a courtesy line of credit to all clients to make this process seamless.
