We help restaurants take payroll off their plate

We know payroll for restaurants is a little different. That’s why we make sure tipped wages are handled right, we make it easy to add new employees, and we integrate with top time-tracking software. Best of all, we keep fees low — just $36/month, plus $4 per active worker.

Loved by Restaurateurs. Respected by Experts.

"OnPay is pretty flawless. It puts me in control of data entry, lets me do multiple pay runs without any extra cost, and employees can access their own payroll records. I've had terrible experiences with other payroll companies making mistakes and leaving me to clean up the mess. But OnPay's customer support is great -- any issue or question that I have encountered is addressed almost instantly."

When it comes to payroll, restaurant owners and managers deserve great service. We do our best to provide it by designing our tools for streamlined data entry and fast processing. We also offer several levels of permissions so you can delegate payroll duties without losing control. And you can integrate with your accounting software (or give access to your accountant) to keep all your finances in one place. Best of all, we always get tips right (and we’ll even take care of any errors with the IRS).

Paychecks with a side of HR and Benefits

Always Accurate

When tipped wages and overtime come together, calculating payroll can get ugly. We’ve got it all figured out, and we’ll always have your back if we make a mistake.

Workers’ Comp + Benefits

We also help you save time and stay compliant (without racking up extra fees). Employee onboarding, PTO tracking, a secure document vault, and a library of HR templates are all included in our monthly fee.
