Overall Satisfaction with Square Payroll

We implemented Square Payroll last year. Our company got new ownership the year before and the new owner was wanting to make some changes to our HR and Accounting department. Get them more in the 21st century. It allows us to handle our payroll faster and simpler than ever before.
  • Tracking Hours
  • Great Customer Support
  • Taxes, W2s, 1099s are much easier now
  • It's a bit pricey for larger companies at $5 per person paid per month.
  • Has a bit of a learning curve that seems steeper than necessary
  • reports can be confusing at first
  • Cut down on payroll time
  • took longer to implement than we would have liked
  • ROI will probably be somewhere around 18-24 months
We used Quickbooks for a long time. Our payroll/HR person for the past 20+ years retired around the time our company was sold and bought. Her replacement had experience in using Square Payroll. We gave it a shot and liked it. We went live rather quickly and it did take some time to get fully implemented but it's been pretty smooth. It seems to do everything that Quickbooks can do but it seems to be better suited for today's fast-paced environment.

Do you think Square Payroll delivers good value for the price?

Did Square Payroll live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Square Payroll go as expected?


Would you buy Square Payroll again?


I would say that Square Payroll is perfect for companies that don't exceed 100 employees. The multistate payroll system allows for us to be able to handle business with ease when we go do work in Mississippi or Arkansas. The multiple payout options are great for our particular business. We might deal with a multimillion dollar contract one day and a $120 order the next.
