It’s the second market, outside of California, that Square has made the product available. It launched in California last summer. It picked Texas for its robust market of small businesses totaling more than 390,000 with 6.4 million hourly employees in Texas, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics and the Small Business Administration. And last year, Texas had the second largest employment increase in the country, according to the BLS.
Square Payroll is available to all Texas businesses, and not just those processing with Square. It costs $20 a month plus $5 per employee. Square’s product integrates timecards, taxes and payments and it has easy setup.
Clyde Greenhouse, the owner of Kessler Baking Studio in Dallas, saves four to six hours every two weeks using Square Payroll. He no longer has to do payroll by hand.
