PayPunch is licensed based on the total number of named employees with currently active accounts. There is no “per installation” fee.
Any employee account can be disabled at any time. Disabled accounts won’t count towards the license count. The account can later be re-enabled. This allows you to recycle licenses that were used by someone who left, etc.
You can return to our store and purchase additional licenses at any time. Once you’ve done this, you do not need to reinstall PayPunch – just update registration with new license to your current installation and start to manage new employees right away.

PayPunch Time and Attendance System consist of 3 main parts:
- Punch clock device such as Biometric Fingerprint Reader, Hand Reader, Proximity Card or HID Reader.
- Universal Biometric Driver (UBD) software which provides communication between device and PayPunch database.
- PayPunch software which provides user interface to review and modify punches, print various reports and export data to your payroll system.
The graph below shows how PayPunch Time and Attendance System works step by step.
2. UBD (Universal Biometric Driver) downloads attendance data from time clocks and uploads the information to PayPunch database which is located on the computer.
PayPunch includes an export functionality that allows user to export all attendance hours to a CSV or Excel file to be imported into Payroll program. Export template can be easily modified to match the standards of the specific Payroll program.

The number of employees you may manage by PayPunch software is restricted by your PayPunch License. This message “You cannot change status of employee because of license limitation” indicates that you have used up all your Employee Licenses in PayPunch.
How to check my License Limitation?
Go to Help tab, click on About and find the number besides “Maximum Active Employees”. That is the number of employee licenses you own. This license only controls the number of active employees in the system, thus, inactive employees are not counted.
How many employees do I have in PayPunch at this moment?
Go to Employees tab and select the company from the Employee Tree. On the lower left corner of the window, you will find the total number of employees in the selected company. This number includes both active and inactive employees.
I’ve checked the numbers. What can I do now?
- Look for former employees who are still marked as “Active” in PayPunch. Active employees are in black color whereas inactive employees are in red.
- Edit Employees and deselect “Active” checkbox to make them inactive.
- Select the new employee and make this employee “Active”.
What if everyone in the list is current employee?
It’s time to purchase additional employee licenses.
For under 20 licenses, please purchase directly from our website: http://www.paypunch.com/purchase-paypunch-software/
