The online payroll service trusted by small businesses.
Worry-free payroll compliance
Based in the U.S., our experienced team helps you make sure your payroll is compliant.
Import timecards automatically
Your team can clock in and out from the Square Point of Sale app. Seamlessly import their hours and even let payroll run automatically.
Online accounts for your team
Your team members can set up online accounts where they can update their personal details and set up direct deposit.
Fair, flexible pricing
Never pay more than you have to—if you pay fewer employees or contractors one pay period, the price you pay goes down.
Let’s make payroll fast and easy.
It’s our mission to make payroll the easiest thing to do on your list. In fact, with Square Payroll, you can pay employees, contractors, or both online in just a few clicks.
Make hourly, salaried, and flat rate payments
Pay every type of team member, as many times per month as you need. Run payroll or send payments at any time—there’s no need to wait until the next pay period.
Only pay for what you use
Unlike other providers, Square Payroll has flexible pricing that scales with your business. If you happen to pay fewer employees from one month to the other, the price you pay goes down.
Set up your whole team: employees, contractors, or both.
Your employees and contractors are emailed a link to their online accounts where they can set up direct deposit and submit their personal information. They can log in anytime to view their pay stubs and tax forms.
Pay employees and contractors
No matter how your team is structured, Square Payroll makes it easy to pay any combination of hourly and salaried employees, and contractors.
