Why are companies choosing Deel over Papaya Global?

icon1-1

Less manual work

Deel automates accounting and HR workflows with compliant contract creation, plugins, compliance document collection, payslips, KYC, and more. Papaya Global doesn’t support any of this.

icon2

More control and payment flexibility

Papaya Global only supports bank transfers for withdrawal. Meanwhile, Deel supports 8+ payment options including crypto, automated invoicing and payments, off-cycle payroll, Deel Card, and more.

icon3

More coverage

Unlike Papaya, 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

Papaya Global’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.

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.
