2. MODIFY STUB SETTINGS

Before you start entering your personal details, make sure to set your stub settings right.

Pay Frequency - How often are you paid? The most common is bi-monthly but feel free to choose what is applicable to you.

Stub Shown - How many paycheck stubs do you want to preview or how many stubs do you need.

Auto Calculate - You can toggle between on and off. If you want a hassle-free experience, we recommend you to turn this on as our tool is capable of doing calculations for you such as tax deductions, annual salary, etc.

3. INPUT PERSONAL INFORMATION

Once you've already carefully selected your stub settings, it's time to fill in the fields with your personal information.

The layout will vary depending on what paystub style you chose but more or less, here are the fields that are important to fill in:

  • Company Name - Name of the company you're working for (if you are employed) or the company/business you're running (if you are self-employed).
  • Company Address - Where the company you're working is located.
  • State - Which state are you located in. Each state has different tax laws so they will vary.
  • SSN - This is your social security number.
  • Employee Name - Your name if you are making a stub for yourself and your employee's name if you are making one for your employee.
  • Income/Earnings - This is how much you earn. Our paystub generator will automatically calculate everything for you if you toggled it on.
    • NOTE: Make sure to match your earnings according to the pay frequency you set on your stub settings. For example, if you are earning $500/month and you set your pay frequency to "Weekly", you should convert $500 into a weekly basis.

4. PREVIEW YOUR PAYCHECK STUB

After you've entered all important and necessary information, you can then preview your paycheck stub to check if there are any errors like a misspelled name, incorrect address, incorrect earning, etc.

You can notice that there is a watermark on the paystub you made.

This leads us to the final step.

5. REMOVE WATERMARK
