Overview

OnPay launched in 2010 as a product at Payroll Center Inc. (founded in 1982) and broke off into its own company in 2015. It currently processes over $1 billion in payroll annually with clients in all 50 states. While it specializes in payroll offerings, it’s also beginning to dip its toes into online time tracking and employee benefits.

OnPay has positioned itself as one of the most affordable payroll service providers for small businesses with 10 or fewer employees. It offers some key services that many of its competitors do not, including direct deposit, check printing, unlimited pay runs, accounting software integration, tax service with an accuracy guarantee and free customer support. As the competition heats up, OnPay is also foraying into online time tracking and employee benefits (although right now, the service puts you in touch with licensed agents rather than offering an HR/benefits administration platform).
