Gusto Payroll Pricing

The pricing for Gusto payroll changes according to your need and varies from $6 per user to $80/month plus $12 per user. Furthermore, the difference between the Gusto pricing tiers is given mainly by the complexity of the organization using it, meaning that if you have only contractors, the software can cost you as little as $6, while if you are running a large organization with several users, it can go up to a few thousand dollars.
