Integrate with Clover

Clover is a POS and payment processor that lets you accept credit cards, EMV chip and contactless payments from customers, safely and securely.

Gusto integrates with Clover to sync employee and contractor names (first and last) and emails between both systems. When you update employee or contractor information in either system, it will automatically be updated in the other.

Syncing info from Gusto to Clover

When an employee or contractor is added into Gusto, the user is automatically added to Clover. The email, first name and last name will create a Clover profile and should require no action on your end.

If the user is already in both systems and a connection needs to be established in order to sync over information changes, the individual will appear in the syncing process once the Gusto dashboard notification has been selected. There, you can elect to merge with an existing Gusto account.
