A payroll API that does so much more.
Gusto has 10 years of experience handling compliance, risk, CX, and more. We channel our expertise to ensure your in-app payroll product is well supported and ready to scale.
Your front-end UI calls the embedded payroll APIs to help create a product your customers will want to use and avoid building the rest of the payroll stack from scratch.
The design of your payroll product should be informed by a thorough understanding of payroll complexity: because better design means fewer penalty notices and lower support costs.
Movement of funds
Experience has taught us the importance of having experienced banking partners who can help you minimize the risk of fraud and credit loss.
Tax payments, filings, compliance
Gusto has hundreds of people and processes to track tax code updates and notify customers of relevant changes. It’s crucial to have a partner that has managed this process at scale.
Fraud, credit loss, security
10 years of payrolls means a lot of lessons learned. It’s allowed us to optimize our risk models, fraud detection, and collections processes. All to help keep your customers’ data and money safe. We’re even SOC 2 Type II certified.
Migrations and transfers
We make migrations and transfers easier by offering APIs that allow customers to self-onboard, and by making our experienced payroll transfers team available as a service. Plus, more of the process is becoming automated every day.
Routing and resolving customer issues is a critical but underestimated part of payroll. Gusto’s experience and one-on-one relationships with tax agencies allow us to resolve issues most effectively.
We make it a priority to offer meaningful usage data to help inform your product and professional services to meet specific needs, drive adoption, and increase revenue.
