When will I receive my first payment?

Your first salary payment date may vary depending on:

  • The country you are employed in
  • The engagement date on the Oyster platform
  • Your start date

The general policy is that if you are engaged on the Oyster platform after the 15th of the month, you will receive your first payment the following month. Check out our salary payment dates article to see a list of payment dates by country. 

Countries with exceptions to the first payment date 

The following countries are exceptions to the rule above. If your start date is within the same month as your engagement date, you will receive the first payment in the same month. 

  • Japan
  • Romania
  • Turkey
  • Czech Republic
  • India

For example, if you are engaged in India after the 15th of August and have a start date in August, payroll will be processed and you will receive your first payment in August.
