API integrations

Admins: Gusto seamlessly integrates with many accounting, applicant tracking, performance management, time tracking, and business operations software systems. Check out all of Gusto's integrated applications here or in the App directory section of your Gusto account. 

Developers: Gusto’s steadily opening our API to more customers. All our API documentation, including how to access each API, can be found here. We’ve spent 10+ years building modern payroll, benefits, and HR solutions for more than 100,000 U.S. employers. We offer two ways to partner using our API:

  1. Build an application - Create an integration between your software and our external API to help solve pain points for mutual customers. Over the years, we’ve empowered countless developers to build integrations with Gusto. Every integrated partner will be featured in our in-app directory and website. Learn more.
  2. Gusto Embedded Payroll - With Gusto Embedded Payroll, you can build customizable payroll experiences into the core software that your businesses are already running on — vertical SaaS platform, point of sale or ecommerce. Learn more.

Note: We currently do not support API access for Gusto customers looking to connect their own company systems directly to their Gusto account using the API. We hope to offer this in the future and appreciate your patience in the meantime.
