Hmm at first glance the site appears to jump on the bitcoin payroll wagon. Question is how do they store customer coins? I looked at their security page and the content looks all nice but no mention of wallets, multi-sig, cold storage or anything else.

Pricing to use their API service shouldn’t be overlooked either, there is other providers where you get the same or similar service for free. BitPay’s payroll API comes to mind (insured funds) and then there is of course BitWage (which funnily reminds me of Paybase design wise) :slight_smile:
