Enable MyPayentry® (ESS) for Individual Employees

While your employees may have previously created a My Payentry® account, they do not have access to your company until you enable them in Payentry® NextGen. You can do this for both a single employee and in bulk. For more information, see Update Multiple Employees' Portal Access. To do so for a single employee:


  1. Go to Company > Employees > Employee whose information you want to edit.

Note: Alternatively, you may also type the employee's name into the smart search bar and select their name from the guess list. You are taken to their profile.

  1. Hover over Employee Profile, on the menu bar, click on Employee Self-Service.
  1. Click on Add Self-Service Access, an Add Self-Service Access dialog comes up.
