How do I sign up as a Contractor?

Before you sign up as a Contractor with Oyster, the hiring Company must fill out new hire information on the Oyster Platform. From there you'll then be invited to Oyster to complete your onboarding.

Note: Today we do not offer Contractors the ability to signup before the hiring company.


Below you can see the Company view. This is where they'll kick off the Contractor signup process.


Once the hiring Company has invited you to signup to Oyster, you'll then receive an email inviting you to signup. It should look something like this:



Click on the Join now button. It will take you to the first step to signup. You can either signup with your email address or with Google.



After you click on the Sign Up button, you'll get a second email from Oyster asking you to confirm your account. Click on the Confirm my account link.



This will then bring you to the following screen asking you to sign in:



After signing in, you will see the onboarding steps you'll need to complete to finish signing up.

You can choose to sign up as an individual or as a company. This determines what name is used on the contract and on the invoice.

Don't forget to add a payment method to receive payments

The company will then start the signature process. You will receive an email requesting a signature once the company has initiated the process.


Note: You can review the contract by clicking on Preview contract. There is no task that you have to do on the contract.
