Payroll for Retail

Focus on selling more.
Let payroll take care of itself.

Look after your staff, get their entitlements right and understand your wage costs.
PayHero is the online payroll and payday filing system for New Zealand retailers.


Stress free payroll compliance

Retail is a hot bed of potentially tricky payroll scenarios with part time and variable hour staff and regularly changing work patterns. PayHero follows the latest MBIE Holidays Act guidelines to ensure your employees maintain the correct holiday entitlements, even when things change.


Take the time out of timesheets

Managing employee time is a breeze in PayHero. Use our time clock app to send accurate timesheets straight to payroll and automatically manage rest and meal breaks. Photos are captured at clock in and out so you can ensure staff are dressed appropriately and ready for their shift.


Easily manage multiple stores

Manage time, leave and payroll for different locations with PayHero Teams. Assign staff members to one or more stores and give local managers access to manage leave approvals and timesheets at their site. Track your wage costs with Xero tracking category integration.

Photo Time Clock
Record exact clock in and clock out times for fast, accurate payroll.

Automatic timesheets
Clock in and outs automatically update timesheets in your payroll. No more collecting paper timesheets, checking the hours have been added up correctly and typing them into your payroll system.

Seamlessly manage paid & unpaid breaks
When your staff record breaks on the time clock app, PayHero will automatically figure out if the break should be a paid 10-minute rest break or an unpaid 30-minute meal break.

Visibility of who's onsite
Get a head start on the health & safety requirements of your venue by always having a record of who’s currently working onsite at any time.

Focus on your customers and staff
Look after your bottom line and let PayHero take care of the tricky payroll stuff.

Easy public holiday payroll
PayHero determines whether a public holiday is an otherwise working day for an employee based on their recent work pattern and calculates their entitlements accordingly.

Automated payday filing
Payday filing is a piece of cake in PayHero – just connect your account to IRD and we’ll automatically send your payroll information through after every pay.

Employee self-service
Save time and hassle by letting your staff view leave balances and request leave from the employee app. They can access their old payslips too, so you don’t need to dig them out.

Update your accounts
Automatically send payroll data through to Xero. Keep it simple or assign wage costs to different account codes and tracking categories for a more detailed break down.

We can see at a glance that the person clocking in is who it should be. We can also check their appearance and ensure they’re wearing our clothing, which is important in a retail environment.
