Integrated currency conversion

Some governments require you to pay workers in their local currency, even if your business operates in a different country. Deel’s mass payment services seamlessly handle currency conversions, providing real-time exchange rates and transparent fees. By centralizing currency conversion within the platform, you can avoid the hassle of dealing with multiple financial institutions or external foreign exchange services.

How to mass pay your workers with Deel

With Deel, you can make one bulk payment to fund your payroll, and our team will ensure your global team gets paid accurately and on time. Here’s a look at the process.

Select the invoices you want to pay

Review the invoices that are ready for payment. You’ll see the amount due and the currency on the Deel dashboard (invoices can be in multiple currencies).

You can:

  • Select ‘All teams’ to pay all the invoices at once or select which specific invoices you want to pay
  • Pay individual contracts, individual teams, or entire entities under your organization
  • Filter invoices based on contract type or make one large payment to cover every contract

Select the payment method and currency

Choose your preferred payment type, whether it’s a bank transfer, direct debit, Mercury, Transferwise, Revolut, or another available method. Choosing direct debit is typically the most streamlined process, as the workflow includes more automation compared to other methods. 


Some payment methods allow you to select the currency you want to pay your workers in. We provide complete visibility of the costs associated with various methods to help you make the most cost-effective decision.

Your chosen payment method will determine the next step in the process. For example, if you select bank transfer, you’ll input your banking details, whereas choosing Coinbase will require you to connect your Coinbase account to Deel.

Review and confirm payment

Review and confirm the payment summary, which details the total amount due, including salaries, payment processing fees, and more, depending on the type of workers you’re paying. The payment processing fee is typically $5 USD, a flat fee whether you’re paying 100 workers or one.

You can then download the summary or share the link to the page with your accounts payable team to process the payment.

Pay your invoice and distribute payments

After you make the invoice payment to Deel, our payroll team distributes the funds directly to your workers’ Deel accounts. You can then track the payment status in the payments tab.

Note: The funding workflow for our Global Payroll product is separate from mass payments for EOR employees or independent contractors. Through Global Payroll, payment is carried out by Deel or your company, depending on local compliance requirements. Watch the video below to learn more.

Get more time to make payroll adjustments

Deel’s industry-leading cut-off dates give EOR clients triple the amount of time to make payroll adjustments for their employees, whether you need to approve last-minute expenses, input time off, add commissions and bonuses, or submit monthly salaries.

Standard payroll service providers often have strict deadlines for adjusting payroll if they work with third parties. Since Deel processes payroll in-house, we can extend cut-off dates for payroll adjustments from the fifth of the month to the twentieth.

Enjoy easier, more flexible payroll with Deel

With Deel’s global payment platform, you can streamline payroll, ensure compliance, and simplify currency conversions for your entire team. One click, and payroll is done.

I can only imagine how annoying it would be to have to process the payments manually twice a month or have to remember the exact day that we have to pay each team. Thanks to Deel, I just need to go to the payments section, press the pay button, and that’s it. It gives me the peace of mind that everyone is getting paid, on time, all over the world.
