To access your customers’ employment data in Gusto, you have two options:
Gusto does not yet offer single company API access but does serve developers through its application integration as well as an embedded payroll solution.
The application integration is an external API that allows you to serve mutual customers by automatically sharing data between apps. Read more here
The embedded payroll API empowers you to build payroll products tailored to your customers’ needs. Read more here
Both are gated APIs that require business development efforts.
That largely depends on the integration method you choose.
If you use Finch’s unified API to access the employment data in Gusto (alongside over 200 other HRIS and payroll systems), it can take as little as a few days. See our quickstart guide for more information.
If you instead decide to build a 1:1 integration leveraging Gusto’s external API, it can take up to two months to receive your production keys from the time you receive your demo keys. See Gusto’s developer FAQ page for more information..
If you’re building a 1:1 integration using Gusto’s external API, the company’s Developer Portal is the best place to start. That’s where you can create an account, apply for API keys, see pricing details, get answers to other frequently asked questions, and access their API docs.
If you’re integrating with Gusto via Finch’s unified API, navigate to our API docs. There, you’ll find a product demo, quickstart guide for developers, integration checklist, and product and developer guides, along with best practices to follow.
Of course, if you have any questions, we’d be happy to help answer them. Send your requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unified employment APIs help developers access data from payroll and HRIS systems employers use. Specifically, these APIs are useful for accessing data from a broad range of employment systems or collecting detailed information about their customers’ payroll and benefits. If your use case requires integrations with three or more employment systems, a unified employment API could save you hundreds of engineering hours and developer resources.
Through a single integration, you can connect with over 200 employment systems (including Gusto)—unlocking up to 88% of the employer market. Once authorized by the employer, you’ll receive fresh data every 24 hours. From enterprise-grade security to read and write capabilities, Finch offers compelling benefits to employer-facing businesses of all shapes and sizes. Learn more
