Before bulk uploading pay items, please ensure that you have configured the new pay items in the payroll setting. You will not be able to upload the pay items if the pay items do not exist in the system yet. If you have not added the pay items in the settings yet, here's how to add new pay items in the payroll setting.

To bulk import pay items:


1. On the left panel of your admin dashboard, head to Payroll > Run Payroll.


2. Select Import Pay Items.

3. Download the template.

4. Fill in all the details in the excel file and ensure that you follow the instructions and format in the sheet. Please fill in with accurate data and attention.


5. Once you have completed the excel template and checked that the data is correct, proceed to upload the attachment on the same page.

6. When the upload is complete, you can find the pay items updated on the Run Payroll page. Kindly check and confirm the items are reflected before you proceed to run payroll.

Note: We don't have a feature to set (monthly) recurring pay items yet. Alternatively, you can keep the import pay item's template with the list of pay items that you will need every month and upload that template monthly together with any updated pay items when you run your payroll in the new month.
