What is a pay cycle?

Pay Cycles (definition)

Pay Cycles determine groups of employees to be paid at the same time each pay period. For example, you might have ten employees on a weekly Pay Cycle, and five employees on a fortnightly Pay Cycle. 

Weekly Pay Cycles are the most common in payroll processing, but it depends on your business needs. This chart represents the pay frequency of PayHero users:
