“Without a solution like Oyster, it’s not even worth the hassle. You just end up deciding, ‘We’re not going to hire there.’ It basically restricts you from getting access to talent. Oyster takes that all away. That’s what makes Oyster great.”

“The service is seamless, the communication is very good, and there’s definitely a lot of time and cost saved. The cost of using Oyster is less than what it would cost for us to deliver the same service using external consultants.”

What is a global contractor?

Contractors can provide critical expertise and experience to any business, and global contractors can be located anywhere in the world. Technically, they’re not employees and may work on a project or on a fixed-term basis. Global contractors allow businesses the flexibility to fill skills gaps or hire for short-term priorities. In most cases, global contractors are not eligible for employee benefits. It is important to be mindful of misclassification risks when working with global contractors. Try out Oyster’s Employee Misclassification Analyzer for country-specific information to inform your worker classification decision.

How do you pay contractors internationally?

There are a variety of ways to pay contractors internationally. A contractor may have a preferred payment platform or service that a company can pay them through. However, with Oyster, companies can work with local payroll specialists to ensure smooth and on-time payments for contractors located anywhere.

How much does it cost to work with a contractor?

The cost of signing up contractors through Oyster’s global employment platform is $29 USD/month per contractor.

Is the Oyster platform free?

It’s totally free to create an account, explore the platform, and access its global HR tools and resources! The Oyster fee will only kick in once you’ve engaged a contractor or Team Member.
