Direct Deposit Service FAQs

  • How does direct deposit payroll work?

    With direct deposit enabled, an electronic payment moves directly from your business’s bank account to that of your employee.

  • Is direct deposit safe?

    Our direct deposit payroll service is a safe and reliable way to pay your workers through a secure ACH transfer. This eliminates the possibility of a paper check getting lost or in the wrong hands. It also saves time.

  • How quickly will my employees get paid?

    OnPay offers a maximum of 4-day turnaround for direct deposit payments.

  • How do I set up direct deposit for employees?

    Employees each have their own OnPay account where they can enter (and update) banking information for direct deposit themselves. Or you can gather employees’ bank account and routing information and follow simple instructions for setting it up.

  • How much does direct deposit cost?

    Everything OnPay does is included in the price of our monthly subscription. There are no fees per pay run, like most other payroll providers.
