PayPal Mass Pay Payroll Setup
Important: If you are the organization owner, you need to ensure that you have a PayPal Business account. If you don’t have one, you can upgrade to business here. Your PayPal account also needs to be enabled for mass payments. You can call 1-888-215-5506 to have PayPal enable mass payments on your account. You’ll need to enter your phone number and then ask to speak to an “agent”.
Here’s the complete list of supported countries for Mass Pay:
- Your account needs to be a verified business account (email verified).
- You need to have a bank account added
- Depending on where you live, PayPal may require you to send a certain amount of money per month in order to use Mass Pay. Contact PayPal support for more information.
After meeting these criteria the Paypal customer service number above should be able to approve your request to have masspay added to your account.
First, click on “Payments” in the left sidebar and click on “Payroll“. Click “Add payment account” to be taken to where you will be able to manage your payment accounts.
Next, click the PayPal option. This will bring up a page that will guide you through allowing permission in your PayPal account.
Make sure you fully read through the instructions given in “How to setup PayPal”, and then click “Connect”
Then log into your Paypal account. You will be asked to “Grant Permission”:
With that permission granted, head back to your “Payment” -> “Payroll” page and you will see the option to “Add member to payroll“.
That button will allow you to select the member you wish to add, change their Pay period, pay rate, bill rate, and enter their Paypal address then click the “Save” button to confirm.
After adding the member in your organization to Payroll, you will see them along with all the options to configure them.

If you pay your team members through Hubstaff via one of our payroll options (Payoneer, PayPal, Transferwise or Bitwage), there are no fees charged by Hubstaff (we don’t take any percentage of the payments). The only fees are the nominal fees charged by the payment sites.
