QB Issue Resolution:

Let’s set up another pay type on the employee profile so you can add a one-time payment on her/his paycheck.


To start, please follow the steps listed below for your guidance:

  1. Select Workers from the left menu, then choose Employees.
  2. Click the name of the employee.
  3. Go to Employee details, then click the Edit (pencil) icon beside Pay.
  4. Click the Edit (pencil) icon from the How much do you pay [Employee name] section.
  5. Mark the pay type that fits your purpose for the one-time payment.
  6. You may need to select Even more ways to pay [Employee name} to make the pay type you’re looking for available.
  7. Enter an amount in the $ field to recur the amount, or leave it blank and just enter the amount when running payroll.
  8. Click Done to save the changes.

You’re now ready to pay the employee. Feel free to read through this article for the detailed steps: Create paychecks in Online Payroll, then select QuickBooks Online Payroll.


After running the payroll, make sure to uncheck the pay type you’ve set up above. By doing so, this will stop the amount from recurring every time you create a paycheck for the employee.


Drop me a line if there’s anything else you need with paying your employee and I’d be glad to help you out.
