Paychex Promise is completely free of charge for the first 3 months of service. After the 3-month period, the program is just $99 for an entire year.
As soon as we receive a signed addendum sent to firstname.lastname@example.org you will be live on the program. To utilize payroll protection, we would need at least 4 successful payrolls ran. To utilize the free same day ACH payrolls at least 2 successful payrolls need to be ran.
Direct deposit, Readychex, and Taxpay are the only products eligible for payroll protection. Items such as garnishments and invoices will be debited from the account as normal.
The Paychex Promise team needs to be contacted well in advance to submitting payroll to use payroll protection. Payrolls that have already been ran, or are pending at the bank cannot have the debit delayed. Paychex Promise can be reached at 877-838-7950 option 5 or Paychexpromise@paychex.com.
We cannot extend the collection date more than 7 days. We delay the debit 7 calendar days, weekends included. For example, if you typically have payroll on a Friday instead of seeing the debit one day prior you would see it the following Friday.
