SpotOn helps merchants by combining payment processing with easy-to-use customer engagement tools, all in one platform.
Gusto integrates with SpotOn to help automate time and attendance functions. The flow of information is one-directional from SpotOn to Gusto.
Customers who join Gusto from SpotOn will receive Gusto free for their first 3 months.
Step 1: Connect SpotOn Restaurant to Hotspot
Important: The location must have a valid Address and Phone Number in SpotOn Restaurant to properly connect to Hotspot.
Users with multiple locations
If you have multiple locations in SpotOn Restaurant that should all sync to the same Hotspot Merchant account, put that Hotspot Merchant ID in the “SpotOn Merchant Group ID” field for each location in the SpotOn Restaurant BOH.
If you have multiple locations in SpotOn Restaurant that should sync to multiple Hotspot Merchant accounts all under a single Root Hotspot account, put the Merchant ID field for each Hotspot sublocation into the “SpotOn Merchant Group ID” field for that specific location in the SpotOn Restaurant BOH. Then connect a single Gusto account to all Hotspot sublocations.
When a Hotspot merchant has multiple locations under a single Root Hotspot account, the Root ID will show in Hub as the “Group ID.” Do not use this number to connect in the SpotOn Restaurant BOH, as it is not a unique identifier. Always use the “ID” number.
Step 2: Connect Gusto to Hotspot
Merchants must have their Integration Type set to Restaurant.
Step 3: Connect Gusto to the Payroll app in Hotspot
Step 4: Sync employees to the Payroll app
Data will flow from SpotOn Restaurant to the Payroll app and into Gusto, but will not flow back from Gusto to SpotOn Restaurant.
If you click a notification prompting you to add an employee, selecting “Create new in Restaurants” will open the SpotOn Restaurant BOH in a new tab. Add your employees there, then navigate back to the Payroll App to finish linking them to Gusto.
Once employees have been successfully linked between all platforms, hours can be synced or resynced (when hours are edited) from SpotOn Restaurant before payroll is run in Gusto. Hours cannot be synced after payroll is run.
