Pricing FAQs

Which pricing plan is right for me?

Starter

If you prefer pay-as-you-go, you can use our Starter plan, for $7 per pay run of 5 people, and $2.50 per payslip. For each bracket of 5 people, you’ll pay an additional $7 per pay run. This is ideal for smaller employers.

If you run a lot of pay cycles, you might be better off bumping up to Standard.

Standard

If you’re a bigger business running frequent pay cycles, but you don’t need costing or timesheets, you’ll want to jump on the Standard plan, at $30 per month and $5 per head per month.

Premium

If you’re running a lot of pays and you need the full PaySauce feature set, including costing and timesheets, the Premium plan might be the best choice ($50 per month and $6 per head per month). These features make a major impact for businesses that need to track costings or gather timesheet data on the run.

How is the Starter plan pricing calculated?

The base fee per pay run increases $7 for each bracket of 5 employees.

Employee Bracket Base Fee
1 - 5 $7
6 - 10 $14
11 - 15 $21
16 - 20 $28
... ...

Don’t forget - it’s also $2.50 per employee per pay run.

How do I change my plan?

You can change your plan on the web app under "Account → Settings → Billing Plan".

Can I select or change my pricing plan on the mobile phone app?

You’ll have to use the PaySauce web app on a computer. If you don’t have access to a computer or need a hand, drop us a call or an email and we’re happy to help.

I have seasonal staff on my payroll. Do I have to pay for them even when they aren't actually working?

If you’re on the Starter plan, you’ll only be charged for the people you actually pay in a given pay run.

If you’re on a subscription service, you’ll still pay your base monthly charge, but your per-person charge will go down. That’s $5 per person on our Standard plan or $6 per person on our Premium plan. If you don’t pay somebody during the calendar month, you won’t be charged for them.

Am I locked in?

Nope! On our subscription plans, you’ll pay on a monthly basis. If you cancel part-way through the month, you’ll be billed the subscription fee for that period, but there are no penalty charges or anything nasty like that.

If you want to stop using PaySauce, move to the Starter (pay-as-you-go) plan and don't run any pays! This way you can still access your data, but won’t be charged anything.

What do you mean by “costing”?

Costing lets you allocate wages against business units and time codes, or whichever expense you want to track, and map this info to bookkeeping software like Xero. For more details on costing, check out https://www.paysauce.com/costing/

And “timesheets”?

PaySauce offers fully mobile timesheets that your staff can fill in from anywhere. For employees paid hourly, these go straight into payroll, cutting way down on admin and time. For more on timesheets, check out https://www.paysauce.com/timesheets/

What if I use costings and/or timesheets some months, but not others?

You can use the Premium plan ($50/month, plus $6/employee) during the months when you use these premium features.

You can switch down to the Standard plan rate ($30/month, plus $5/employee) during the months when you don’t use costings or timesheets.

What if I’m on a subscription, and use timesheets, but not costings (or vice versa)?

In this case, you’re still categorised as Premium.

Will I still have access to reports on the Standard plan?

You sure do! All our customers have access to all reports.

What if I’m on Standard and using an external timesheet app outside of PaySauce, then uploading my timesheet data?

No worries. We won’t put you onto Premium for uploading your own timesheet data. You’ll still be on the Standard rate ($30 per month, plus $5 per employee).

If I’m on the Standard plan, do you still process pays into my staff’s accounts and pay and file with Inland Revenue?

Yep, you’re all good. The only features that are just for Premium customers are costings and timesheets.

Will I be charged bank fees?

Nope! We absorb these to make your pricing more transparent.

I’m a large employer (50+ employees). What about me?

Get in touch with us directly on 0800 746 700, so we can figure out the best and fairest way for you to use PaySauce.

How will I be billed?

If you’re on the Starter plan, you’ll be billed each payday for each person in each pay run.

If you’re on one of our subscription plans, you’ll be billed monthly for each unique employee in any pay run. If you pay the same 5 people 4 times in a month, you’ll only be charged for 5 employees. If you pay 7 different employees across 2 pay cycles in a month, you’ll be charged for 7 employees.

When will I be billed?

Pay-as-you-go

Our fees will be charged each time you run a pay.

Subscription

When you run your first pay after joining, you’ll be charged your subscription fee for that month. In subsequent months, you will be charged the subscription fee on the first banking day of the month. You will also be charged per employee for every unique staff member paid across the month at the time of the pay run.

What if I’m on a subscription plan but my pay run is sometimes 5 or under?

Because you pay your subscription on a monthly basis, you’re able to shift between plans from month to month if that suits you.

Why are you more expensive than some other payroll providers?

In some cases, we are. But just make sure you're comparing apples with apples.

Not all payroll providers offer the same features or level of service. If you do your research, we’re confident you’ll find that our pricing is very competitive. As an end-to-end solution, we’re actually much cheaper than many of our competitors!

I’m coming from another provider. Will it cost to transfer my data across?

Nope, we’ve got you covered. Our support team can help you bring all your data across for free.
