Change your employee or contractor to check for one payroll

If your employee or contractor is typically set to pay through direct deposit, you can choose to pay them with a check instead for a particular payroll.

To change an employee payment to check:

  1. Click the Payroll section and select Run payroll.
  2. Click into the payroll you need to run.
    • You can change an employee's payment method for any payroll type–Regular payroll, Off-cycle payroll or a Bonus payroll.
  3. Next to your employee, click your employee's payment method (Direct Deposit) until it updates to Check.
    • If you'd like to make this change for more than one employee, you can use the bulk edit tool.
  4. Finish running payroll.

Once this payroll is submitted, print or write your checks and hand them to your employees. 

Note: Changing the payment method to check using this process will only affect this one payroll occurrence. Future payrolls will still default to the employee's current payment method settings.

To change a contractor payment to check:

  1. Click the Payroll section and select Pay contractors.
  2. Select the pay date.
  3. Click +Enter payment 
  4. Next to your contractor, click your employee's payment method (Direct Deposit) until it updates to Check.
  5. Finish running payroll.

Once this payroll is submitted, print or write your checks and hand them to your contractors.

Note: Changing the payment method to check using this process will only affect this one payroll occurrence. Future payrolls will still default to the contractor's current payment method settings.
