Hire and pay domestic contractors

Add your independent domestic contractors' basic information, invite them to self-onboard, send new hire documents (like contracts) for them to sign, and get ready to pay your team with ease. If you're not already using Gusto for payroll, get started paying your contractors with Gusto.

Once your domestic contractors have been added to Gusto (see below), pay them by check or direct deposit to a bank account (there is no difference in cost between the two)—not a prepaid debit card—using the steps under the Pay a domestic contractor dropdown. Contractors are paid with the same payment speed as your employee payroll. 

If there are any issues with receiving a payment, click the Troubleshoot payment problems dropdown below.
