Hire and pay US-based (domestic) contractors

Add your independent U.S.-based 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, pay them by check or direct deposit to a bank account using the steps under the Pay a domestic contractor dropdown (there is no difference in cost between the two).

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