What do you like best?

Being a small, small business (2 employees) we wanted something easy to use but also low in cost. Most other services had a blanket price for 1-12 employees and also charged extra for direct deposit. OnPay keeps it easy and doesn't charge us an arm + leg + first born. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Customer service takes a bit long to respond but with the pandemic happening, i know it puts a lot of companies in precarious positions. I'm sure OnPay is experiencing this just like anyone else. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having all of our tax filings online is amazing! We were previously using our accountants payroll service and it was a tad archaic when it came to paperwork. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

We were transition from in-house systems for payroll, onboarding and document tracking with an external accountant for filing required tax forms to OnPay. The transition team was awesome for getting our legacy data into the system and employees setup with past payroll for the year as well as employee garnishments. Our mock payroll run matched our self-run payroll with a few minor exceptions with Montana State Withholding (an error in our original payroll processing). Very smooth and efficient process.

OnPay staff were just an email or phone call away during the entire process. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I have yet to encounter a major dislike of this platform. The interface to upload a formatted CSV could be a little cleaner, but it does work. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Centralized payroll processing that handled every aspect of payroll tax filings and garnishments was vital. The ability to upload employee hours from our in-house time reporting system was a bonus. Onboarding of new employees can be automated, saving hours of processing time by staff.

The biggest benefit is of course the reduced cost of payroll and tax filings. We are a small non-profit; cost savings are important. We are saving hundreds a month with OnPay! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The Zoom meeting with a rep for start up was very comprehensive. Did a lot of the work for me but also explained what she was doing. After set up, reps were very helpful in chat format. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Great time saver for me personally. I have done my own payroll for 4 decades and my business has grown 20 fold. I was spending hours each month doing payroll and submitting all state and federal tax forms. Great time saver and my staff thinks it is great. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Onpay does a better job of processing payroll than I can. It simplifies the process, never misses filing deadlines and the reports are easy to access.

Most all questions and help are quickly answered through the chat by talented people who understand the software.

It is easy to set up, make employee changes on the fly, running payroll is quick and easy, the direct deposit makes it paperless.

W-2's are quickly available in a self print form. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Reporting for workman's comp is manual in that I have to manually calculate pay based on regular hours by converting overtime pay to regular pay dollars. It also does not allow for an employee to have multiple workman's comp codes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using OnPay saves me time

Saves me stress from making accurate and timely payroll taxes.

Employees can view their pay information online.

Reports are all available online, so no searching for documents. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I’ve been using OnPay since I opened my small business two years ago. For a business owner who doesn’t know much about HR or payroll, OnPay has been a huge help. It has been so simple to onboard my employees and run payroll every other week. When I have needed assistance I’ve been more than pleased with the help I’ve received through email and the online chat. I highly recommend OnPay to any small business needing a payroll solution. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

No dislikes so far. I’ve been really pleased with the service I get at the price I’m paying. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I don’t have any advice to give except to fully consider OnPay for your payroll needs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

What do you like best?

Onpay has great customer service and an easy to navigate platform. I am able to easily search for any employee and see their pay history. Onpay also has an easy export function which has been very useful. The customer service at Onpay is great, any time I need assistance or a question there is always someone available to assist me. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There has been nothing that I needed from Onpay that they were unable to help with. Sometimes when logging into Onpay.com it takes a min or two to load, I have also had this happen when loading all my employees. I am not sure if this is because I have a few hundred employees in their system or if this would also happen with smaller companies. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would recommend Onpay because of their ease of use and their exceptional customer service.

Onpay is a great resource for all payroll needs and keeping track of your employees. There are also many very cool looking features that I have not yet had the chance to try. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Onpay has made the payroll process much easier. Onpay collects all employee data i.e. W9, social security number, address etc. They also have an easy and efficient way to export all this data. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I just started using OnPay and their platform is excellent. Customer service is what is really impressive. Speak English, understands what I am saying, and provides guidance. The integration part with Quickbooks is really awesome. Works perfectly. Tax filing, benefits administration, all in one place is great. As I onboarded, their team was hands-on attentive, and very patient.

You cannot beat the price point, especially that it offers an HR part to it. Now the Employees feel that even though we are a small company, we are keeping up with automation and they have access to their information anytime they need it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There is really not much to dislike about the platform or the team. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend 100% the use of this platform and company. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With OnPay I can run payroll quick, efficient, and not worry about the tax fillings. The direct deposit to employees' accounts is a gigantic help. This is a big plus!!! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Software is user-friendly, intuitive and packed with features. I was even able to add workers comp. Plus, there's an option to export data directly to QuickBooks. Overall, the service is slick and best of all, it won't break the bank. Certainly the best payroll software money can buy. What sets OnPay apart is the customer service- truly above & beyond. They are SUPER responsive. The chat feature is both convenient and effective and the service reps are extremely knowledgeable. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Instructional pop-ups would go a long way to assist navigating the site and the multitude of capabilities- particularly when inputting information for the first pay run…& especially when adding non-hourly employees or atypical payment schedules. Fortunately, the customer service team can help walk-thru the process, answer any questions and help correct any mistakes. But once everything is set up, running payroll is simple, quick & easy. My only other suggestion would be to have informational links that provide instructions how to add the various features, or simply display an overview of the options at your disposal. I continue to find new ways to incorporate their service (i.e. reimbursement, sending out year-end bonuses, etc.). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Added direct deposit for pay checks & streamlined both reimbursement and sending out bonuses. The employees love receiving their pay checks and bonuses via direct deposit - which is great because payroll is completed in a matter of clicks. We've successfully eliminated untold hours of back office, accounting & tax prep utilizing the QuickBooks integration. Plus, we were able to add workers comp which is automatically deducted each month. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

OnPay Payroll rates are very attractive, probably the best rates you will find out there.

OnPay also helped our Company a lot getting starts with them, they uploaded all our employee information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I wish they had more in-house Health Insurance Agents. In North Carolina the biggest insurer is Blue Cross / Blue Shield but since they do not have a Blue Cross Agent I had to get our company Health insurance for an independent agent. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The onboarding process has been easy with OnPay entering all of our employees, their deductions, previous checks, etc. My dedicated representative has been very patient and kind during the whole process and has answered all of my questions. The set up has been super easy! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The only complaint I've had is from my employees when they logged in to see the net of their check and it takes an extra click to find the net. Not a big deal, just a learning curve for them. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the issue of not having a full time HR person on board. This change is freeing up more of my time and gives me assurance that we are better in line with payroll laws in the numerous states we have employees in. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

OnPay fits my business needs to a t. The few times there were any hiccups, they were right there, responsively, with a solution. I like that I can run payroll when I want to in about 2 minutes.

I don't have to be a payroll expert to use OnPay. It automatically files employment docs like new hire forms and quarterly payroll tax returns. As a California business, I like that it automatically calculates sick pay accrual for my part time employees. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

I have a small team, so it's very affordable compared to other more expensive platforms that have bells and whistles our business doesn't need. It stores employee files digitally which is a great feature. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
