What is multi-country payroll?

Multi-country payroll describes a process where cross-border transfers are made to facilitate salary, expense, or invoice payments. Without a platform that facilitates cross-border money transfers, multi-country payroll can be complex to carry out due to international banking regulations, fees, delays, and other variables.

How do I set up multi-country payroll?

Your company can use Oyster to set up multi-country payroll for full-time employees and contractors hired with Oyster by enabling direct debit. Team Members can add their banking information right in the platform to receive their payments.

How often does payroll run in Oyster?

Oyster follows local payroll frequency requirements for full-time Team Members (e.g. bi-weekly, monthly). Fixed contractors are paid on a monthly basis. For pay-as-you-go contractors, payments are processed as soon as you approve their invoices.
