Global hiring has exploded in the last year, but for contractors working with international companies, getting paid on time and without extra hidden fees is still an obstacle. We’re changing that. Our innovative products like Deel Advance, Deel Card, and now Instant Card Transfer make it easier for contractors to work and get paid anywhere.

Contractors from developing countries mostly rely on other international bank transfer networks and often wait up to seven business days to receive their money. These payments usually come with hidden fees and delays due to the chain of intermediary banks processing the transaction. This can lead to problems for contractors and clients, forcing them to navigate time-consuming troubleshooting processes.

Did someone say instantaneous transfers?

We launched Instant Card Transfer in August of 2022, and today we're making it even more accessible. Contractors now have an instant and direct way to get paid, and they'll only ever pay a maximum of $15. It's their money right in their bank account. By using their bank card details, contractors can get paid immediately via the Mastercard or Visa network. No more payday uncertainty or hidden extra fees. Plus, 90% of transfers arrive in 15 seconds or less.

Instant Card Transfer makes it easy for contractors in places like Ukraine, the Philippines, and the Dominican Republic to access their money without delays and extra hidden fees. They can be more sure when their salaries deposit into their bank accounts.

We’re excited to enhance Deel’s contractor experience by providing instant and reliable transfers, particularly in the new world of cross-border work.
