Compound Interest is calculated on the initial payment and also on the interest of previous periods.
Example: Suppose you give \$100 to a bank which pays you 10% compound interest at the end of every year. After one year you will have \$100 + 10% = \$110, and after two years you will have \$110 + 10% = \$121.
