“OnPay was very easy to set up...”

OnPay was very easy to set up and their customer service has been quick to help with questions and a few customization needs. The interface is clean and easy to use, so much so that I get nervous I have forgotten something. It just can't be this easy to run payroll!

"We decided to go with OnPay after a negative experience with a PEO. We still wanted to find a solution with outside support for payroll and benefits, but we wanted the flexibility of customizing the product to fit our needs. I love the fee structure with OnPay. It's simple and clear with no hidden fees."
