Wise Platform and Deel Make It Even Faster to Get Paid With New Feature


“Wise Platform has launched a new service with leading global HR and payroll company, Deel . The feature enables customers to send funds via Deel using just an email address, opening up 10 new currencies in Deel’s payments infrastructure and further simplifying global payroll for over 10,000 Deel customers – from SMBs to publicly traded companies. To date, customers using Deel in certain markets would have had to fund payroll by sending a USD or EUR international SWIFT transfer from their bank, which can be expensive, slow and inefficient. They would also have had to input a large amount of employee information in order to initiate their payments, including selecting a currency, adding account details, account type, and address information.”
