Papaya Global does not

meet expectations for coverage and straightforward processes.

I find many aspects cumbersome. It is often confusing to navigate through the website and many times not all information fits in the screen. The user experience overall is not a good one.

Verified Capterra Review

It's just really painful when I check invoices since I go over each item, and there is usually a mistake the employer or Papaya made. So I really have to carefully check each invoice, which is a lot of work.

Verified Capterra Review

Some of the advanced tools it offers require additional payment. This can be a disadvantage for those users who need a cheaper solution. Also, the software can be difficult to use for inexperienced users.

Verified Capterra Review

Limited locations. I wish that they had more locations in the Middle east.
