What is an advance?

Advance is an agreement where a business or an individual receives a lump-sum payment up front, in exchange for an agreed upon amount of future earnings.

How much does it cost?

Deel charges a one-time fixed fee of 2% of the Advance Amount where the next scheduled payment is less then 20 days away, and 3% of the Advance Amount where the next scheduled payment is 20-30 days away.

Is Deel Advance a type of loan?

Deel Advances are not loans. Rather, they are an advance. Instead of borrowing money, you’re selling a portion of your future earnings, which is collected automatically from your scheduled client payments. There are no interest rates, only a one-time fixed fee.

How does Deel Advance feature work?

Deel gives you an advance on your next paycheck. When your client pays you on next regular payday, Deel automatically collects the Advance from your balance.

Yes, the Advance amount and fee can be up to the value of your next scheduled payment. Your maximum limit will be viewable in the request screen. The maximum Advance amount under any circumstance is $20,000.

Will my client be notified if I use Deel Advance?

No. A Deel Advance is a contract between you (the contractor) and Deel. Clients will only be contacted if their scheduled payment is not paid on time or in full. In that case, Deel will reach out to the client to understand why their payment was not made.

Will you undertake a credit check that will impact my credit score?

No. Deel will not undertake a credit check.
