To access your customers’ employment data in Paylocity, you have two options:
Paylocity offers APIs to both its customers and developers wanting to build connected solutions for employers. Read about Paylocity’s API.
Developers must apply to become a supported API vendor. They must fulfill a list of requirements including having at least three mutual customers, completing a Partner Certification Process, and investing in mutual business development efforts. See this page for more information.
That largely depends on the integration method you choose.
If you use Finch’s unified API to access the employment data in Paylocity (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 Paylocity’s APIs, it can take weeks to months to receive your production keys. See Paylocity's developer portal for more information.
If you’re building a 1:1 integration using Paylocity’s public APIs, the company’s developer portal is the best place to start. That’s where you’ll find their user guide and technical documentation for their APIs and webhooks.
If you’re integrating with Paylocity 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 email@example.com.
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 details. 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 Paylocity)—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.
Since day one, security and transparency have always been priorities at Finch. We are committed to protecting the data of our customers, employers, and employees.
Finch’s infrastructure enforces TLS 1.2 for data in transit and encrypts data at rest using AES 256 bit encryption. Read more about Security at Finch. Your application front-end redirects your user to Finch Connect, our OAuth 2.0-based authorization flow, which guides your user through granting you access to their employment system.
