Why are companies choosing Deel over Oyster?

icon-1

Less manual work

Deel automates accounting and HR workflows with 11+ integrations, contract creation, compliance document collection, payslips, KYC, and more. Oyster doesn’t support any of these.

icon2-team

More control and payment flexibility

Oyster only supports bank transfers for payments. Meanwhile, Deel supports 8+ withdrawal options, plus automated invoicing and payroll, off-cycle payroll, Deel Card, and more.

icon3-globe

More coverage with better pricing

Unlike Oyster, Deel owns entities in every Employer of Record market, meaning we don’t pass you off to external partners and we can offer you better experience and pricing.

icon4

Faster, more reliable 24/7 support

Oyster’s email-only support has a one day turnaround time, with no dedicated point of contact.
Deel has instant 24/7 in-app support, plus a dedicated account manager.

“We experienced issues with Oyster as soon as we implemented it; from contractor payments and withdrawal problems, to 3 - 4 day delays in responses from support. When we switched to Deel, all of the things we were so frustrated by just evaporated.”

Alex Noonan, Last Call Media

What we do well (like really, really well)

Innovation, Automation, and Team Experience are at the heart of everything we do. Our powerful platform allows you to customize payments, contracts, reports, integrations, and much more. And with our Open API (coming soon) you can build custom integrations to fit your business needs.
