Product Overview

This review focuses on Rippling’s payroll module. For more information on its additional features, check out our HRMS review here.

Rippling Payroll is a module within Rippling’s HR platform that provides flexible features for quick payroll processing. Because it syncs with Rippling’s other modules and third-party applications, there’s no need to manually enter employee time data. Rippling Payroll also integrates to SMB- and enterprise-oriented accounting solutions (e.g., QuickBooks, Xero, NetSuite, Sage Intacct), so expense data flows straight to those systems.

Rippling also has a mobile app, allowing employees to get push notifications about their paychecks, manage their leave balance, and request time off directly from their phones.

The module includes a host of other useful features, outlined directly below.


Rippling Payroll supports all 50 states and international locations, so companies can pay their employees and contractors regardless of what countries they’re in. It also supports companies that have multiple employer identification numbers (EINs). Companies can manage all their EINs in a single account, and the module will automatically split out payroll runs by EIN, fund those runs from separate bank accounts, and make separate tax filings for each EIN.

In addition, Rippling Payroll can automatically prorate and precalculate any payroll data, such as compensation changes, by creating the transition pay runs for administrators. It also offers federal, state and local payroll tax filing as well as filing for I-9, W2, W4 and 1099 forms.

Other key features include the choice of paying employees by direct deposit or check, garnishments, new hire reporting, workers comp and self-service payroll corrections. Plus, administrators can delegate payroll tasks to specific users (e.g., asking sales managers to add commissions to payroll runs).
