What do you like best?

It is an easy-to-use platform for people who are just starting to use it.

It has a low cost.

Sometimes downloading the export can be a bit complicated.

But I think he has no more negative things.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is a solution with a low cost and that is also very easy to use, that is why it is difficult to overcome. For small and medium companies it is ideal.

I can manage my own payroll and so I can know with more certainty how everything is working.

"So easy"

What do you like best?

Square Payroll is the best payroll processing service for contractors that I could find when I started my business. True, it's pretty much the only one -- but their customer support is great, and it's amazing that I can submit direct deposit to contractors for a flat $5 monthly fee per user.

What do you dislike?

I wish that contractor pay out could process a little faster than it does.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely use Square Payroll!

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

Paying contractors via direct deposit instead of paying with checks.

"Great System!"

What do you like best?

It's a well-known company used in stores and companies nationwide, unlike some payroll services that sounds sketchy. Also, by using Square POS system, our employees timecards will automatically sync with the Square Payroll app. That is the biggest benefit I believe by using it. Everything works together to be efficient and saves time.

What do you dislike?

I wish it was a little bit cheaper to use. The base rate isn't bad, but they get you with the per/employee fee of $5. That's the only reason I rated this software a 9.

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

It integrates with Square POS systems to pay both contractors and employees. One benefit for our company is that Square files federal and state taxes the company owes for full-time W-2 employee salaries at no added cost! I know our company is in good hands being compliant in everything ranging from New-hire reports sick leave & paid time off tracking, workers comp, new hire-reports and more that Square deals with and we don't have to. The online account allows employees to access their direct deposit bank account, pay stubs, and update/change their tax withholdings.

"Square Payroll"

What do you like best?

So we use square to give an idea of what payroll will be, we don’t take all of the payroll from square. I like that I can see who worked at what time

What do you dislike?

You sort of have to look for the right report and there are a lot of reports and it can be hard to find the right one right away

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

Square gives real time data so I like thar it is exactly what will be on the bank. I like that square payroll shows what should be the balances after tips are deducted. It gives me an idea of where we are
