Change a contractor's payment method to direct deposit

If your contractor is set up for a check payment method, they can change this to direct deposit directly from their own Gusto account. You can also make this adjustment for them using the following steps:

  1. Click the People section and select Team members.
  2. Click your contractor's name.
  3. Navigate to the "Contractor Details" section of their profile.
  4. Next to Payment Method, click edit.
  5. Select direct deposit and enter the routing number, account type, and account number.
    • Note: Pre-paid debit cards are not accepted as a form of payment for contractors. 
  6. Click Save.

Your contractor will now be paid through direct deposit whenever you process a payment.
