Global hiring has exploded in the last year, but for contractors working with international companies, getting paid on time and without 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 that rely on SWIFT often wait up to seven business days to receive their money. Cross-border payments usually come with high fees and failures due to transfer issues. This can lead to problems for contractors and clients, forcing them to navigate time-consuming and fragmented payment processes.

Did someone say instantaneous transfers?

Today Instant Card Transfers launches. Contractors now have a more instant and direct way to get paid. It's their money right in their bank account without the need to use SWIFT. By using their bank card details, contractors can get paid immediately via the MasterCard or Visa network. No more payday uncertainty or SWIFT 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 fees. They can be more sure when their salaries deposit into their bank accounts.

Work with international companies and get paid fast, no matter where you live

“Hiring globally shouldn’t come with limitations, meaning paying contractors in certain countries shouldn’t be difficult. We’re excited to enhance Deel’s contractor experience by providing instant and reliable transfers, particularly in the new world of cross-border work. And we’re thrilled to partner with Paysend to do so. It’s an important milestone in helping businesses hire anyone, anywhere.”
- Dan Westgarth, COO @ Deel

Instant Bank Transfers give contractors easier pay access. It helps level the playing field when hiring and paying worldwide. Clients can send payments right to their bank account as long as a contractor can supply their full name and bank card number. Thanks to our partnership with Paysend, contractors can access their hard-earned money faster than before. Contractors in Ukraine, Belarus, Georgia, Honduras, the Philippines, Kazakhstan, and the Dominican Republic will be the first to access this new feature. We plan to scale this payment method to more contractors worldwide soon.

How does it work?

  1. Head to your Account Settings in Deel and choose Instant Card Transfer as your withdrawal method
  2. The money should arrive instantly, but it can sometimes take a couple of hours depending on your bank
  3. If you use auto pay, once you’ve set up Instant Card Transfer as your withdrawal method, your withdrawal will happen instantly
