We are dedicated to helping some of the UK’s leading recruitment agencies, seasonal agricultural farms and employers find a quick, reliable, and secure method of paying wages to workers who don’t have a traditional UK bank account. Enabling you to eliminate cheques, cash, and avoid payments to 3rd party bank accounts.
To support you and your business, you will have direct contact with our Client Services Team, should you have any questions or queries. As long as your workers are employed by you, and are living and working in the UK, they are entitled to apply for a OnePay account. All OnePay account holders have their own account number and sort code, so payroll works exactly as it would if you were paying into a mainstream bank.
Your workers will have access to a multilingual Online Portal, Mobile app, automated telephone service and dedicated customer service team, so that they can manage their money 24/7. They will receive a contactless chip and PIN card, which enables them to withdraw cash from most ATM’s worldwide that display Mastercard®, pay at point of sale terminals, shop securely online (they will need to register their phone number or email address to enable them to do this) and ask for up to £50 cashback from supporting retailers.
