Magic Links – A powerful new feature for Whistle Payments

Magic Links, makes Whistle payments the easiest employee payment and reward tool ever!

We are thrilled to be announcing the launch of  Magic Links for Whistle. This new feature makes getting a payment within Whistle even easier for the recipient. Whistle has always been a powerful hub for team leads to distribute bonuses, reimburse purchases, or buy lunch for the team in just minutes. With Magic Links, we turned our focus to those receiving the payments with the goal to make it as fun, rewarding, and simple as possible.

How do Magic Links work?

1. Open your payment email and click the link.

2. Agree to the Terms of Service and Whistle card agreements

3. View your card, spend your funds or save in your mobile wallet.

Why are Magic Links important?

We know rewards and incentives are powerful levers for creating behavior change and engaging employees. We also know that reducing the friction of those rewards is an important part of maximizing their impact. Oftentimes, gift cards and point based rewards go unredeemed because of cumbersome redemption procedures. With our magic links, the recipient doesn’t need an account or a password, just the link in the email and within seconds they can access their reward and spend it anywhere.

How are Magic Links secure?

Magic Link security was a large focus for us with a number of safeguards that we put in place. Single use, time expiration, and balance threshold are all important factors for avoiding potential security risks. For example, the payment email’s link only logs you in the first time you click it. After that, you must log in again to manage your wallet. Links also expire after 24 hours. No worrying about a year-old email sitting in your inbox with open access to your Whistle wallet! We also use a balance threshold and require a second factor of authorization if the total is over a certain amount.  These are just a few of the security features we designed into Magic Links.

Whistle Payments are Remarkably Simple.

Save time and money by using Whistle Payments with Magic Links because it is easy to set up and easy for your participants.  In fact if Whistle Payments is not the easiest platform you have used for employee rewards, Whistle will refund your fees.

  • Whistle will help you set up an account in about 5 minutes

And Magic Links makes it even easier!
