Not every payroll solution adequately serves complex industries and operations. Luckily, OnPay delivers a much-needed lifeline for some of these often shut-out organizations.
For starters, the full-service payroll platform supports all 50 US states and Washington, DC, at no extra charge. Many competitors levy $12 extra per state, so this is a crucial money saver if your business extends across continental borders.
But OnPay’s true magic shines with its handling of farmers, nonprofits, and religious organizations. For agricultural businesses, there is full support for H-2A workers and automatic filing of IRS form 943. Plus, there’s no cost to keep seasonal laborers on the books. Instead, you’re only charged when you actively pay these helping hands.
Oh, and when you need to focus on making money to fund wages, you’ll enjoy an officially e ndorsed integration with FCSAmerica’s Magnify financial analysis software. We've seen no other payroll software that offers this direct connection, making OnPay uniquely suited for farmers.
This level of tailored support also extends to religious organizations and nonprofits. These entities can easily arrange parsonage allowances, the Federal Unemployment Tax Act (FUTA) exemptions, and other special considerations. For comparison, many payroll competitors, such as Payroll4Free, overlook these nuances, which makes it difficult to properly balance the books.
A massive downside to OnPay is its lack of user-friendly training. Notably absent are elaborate guides, walkthroughs, videos, and helpful blogs, which are par for the course in competitors like Gusto. As a result, you’re mostly on your own to master the platform, although US-based phone support is offered Monday through Friday.
