How-To Tuesday: Setting up Check Printing on PayWow

After running payroll, employers must either pay their employees by direct deposit or check. PayWow gives employers/employees the option of choosing their preferred payment method between direct deposit or check. If an employee/contractor has opted to receive checks as their mode of payment, the employer may print checks from PayWow along with a paystub. 

PayWow allows employers to create custom checks for employees and contractors using the check printing feature. Here’s how to create and print a payroll check with PayWow:
