So, why Deel?

An easier, more compliant way to hire employees and contractors in 150 countries.

The most solid compliance around (the world)

Papaya Global's simple localized freelancer agreement covers general laws, and their lack of document collection opens the door for error (and fines). At Deel, employee and contractor compliance are critical. No matter where in the world, we ensure compliance with airtight contracts localized for every country, automatic tax and work permit collection, properly issued equipment, data processing agreements, background checks, and so much more.

A team experience every team should experience

From payroll to perks, Deel simplifies everything for businesses and teams. Employees get paid in their local currency with taxes, pensions, and any deductions handled. Contractor invoices are automated, and they can choose from 15 payment options. With Papaya Global, invoices must be manually handled and validated, and contractors only have one available payment option. Plus, there are no perks in sight.

Limitless hiring possibilities with Deel-owned entities

Our 50 Deel-owned entities (100 by the end of the year) worldwide make employee hiring seamless. In countries we don't own an entity yet, we work alongside top partners with years of experience to ensure you can employ wherever you need to. Deel's trusted combination model enables compliant hiring in 150 countries versus Papaya Global that owns no local subsidiaries, and strictly relies on third-party vendors and their IP clauses.

The only 24/7 instant support in the industry

Handling payments is serious stuff. Our support team's always online and ready to help in 11 different languages. Unlike Papaya Global, our in-app support works for you and your entire team, whenever and wherever you need it. Plus, every business gets access to dedicated local HR and people ops teams to help with any and every employment question you have.

What we do well (like really, really well)

In platform amendments for employee management, expenses, allowances, adjustments for contractors, invoice customization, team roles, reporting, data safely (not via email), in-app customer support, employee onboarding calls, background checks—we can keep going.
