The essential tool - no matter what job your workers do

OnePay solves the problem of paying temporary workers without UK bank accounts.

By using payment technology and supporting services from OnePay, ethical recruiters can respond rapidly to labour shortages while supporting temporary workers as they adjust to financial independence away from home. 

No matter their nationality or availability of ID documents, OnePay enables temporary recruiters to issue workers with a OnePay account in as little as two hours. 

Why choose OnePay?

For over 16 years, OnePay has been dedicated to making it easier for employers and recruiters to pay temporary staff without UK bank accounts. In that time, we have learnt that speed and responsiveness are critical to our clients. For their workers, we know real care is needed as they learn to manage their money and unfamiliar financial processes. 

OnePay is optimised to solve these complex issues. 

Each aspect of our service and processes are the result of close relationships and collaboration with our technology, regulatory, and recruitment agency partners. 

 Card now, verify later

Employers can be up and running with OnePay in as little as two hours. Our frictionless onboarding means you could be issuing cards to your workers the same day.

Even if your workers don’t have ID documents readily available, you can issue a card so they can begin work immediately. OnePay takes full responsibility for validating all documentation.

Rapid set up:

  • Frictionless 2-hour onboarding 
  • No ID documents immediately required
  • Issue cards to workers over the age of 16 

Dedicated account management & practical tools for employers

  • Choose card delivery to your office or workers’ home address Dedicated account management & practical tools for employers
  • Online portal for worker applications
  • Set up Agency Debits to recoup costs directly from workers’ wages 
  • Receive alerts for non-activation or imminent expiry of cards 

 Not just a card, a helping hand

Making sure your workers can access their weekly pay is always our top priority. But we believe hiring temporary workers comes with more than just the obligation to pay them fairly and on time. 

If your workers are new to the UK or unfamiliar with digital financial products, they may need more help as they support your business. 

To keep your workers happy and productive while away from home, OnePay helps look after their financial wellbeing.
