First time paying employees? Our team can walk you through your first pay run, and make sure everything runs smoothly and accurately.

Only pay for what you use.

Unlike other providers, Square Payroll has flexible pricing that scales with your business. So if you happen to pay fewer employees one pay period, the price of Square Payroll also goes down.
