When will I receive my first payment?

  • Updated


The 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 the first payment on the following month. Our salary payment dates covers a list of when to expect payments.


Countries with exceptions on 1st payment date 

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

  • Spain
  • Japan
  • Romania
  • Turkey
  • Czech Republic
  • India

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