Installing the Quickbooks Online App

The Quickbooks Online app (powered by OneSaas) is a free BigCommerce app that integrates your store with your Quickbooks Online account. This app can help save you time, effort, and errors by automating your bookkeeping. Its features include:

  • Automatically syncing orders, products, customers, taxes, discounts, refunds, and shipping charges
  • Accurately recording sales income, tax, refunds, discounts, and shipping
  • Automatic payments reconciliation

The Quickbooks Online app takes just a few minutes to set up.

Prerequisites before Setup

Before setting up the Quickbooks Online app, please make sure you have the following setup in your BigCommerce account and Quickbooks Online account. (If you don't already have a Quickbooks Online account, you can create a trial now.)

The Quickbooks Online app for BigCommerce is only available to businesses based in the United States.

BigCommerce Settings

  • Payment methods should be set up. If these change later, you can resync them with Quickbooks.
  • Taxes should be set up. If you are using Avalara, make sure there are no tax rates set up when Avalara is disabled, or else these will be synched with Quickbooks Online.
  • Have SKUs on your products. Quickbooks Online references products by SKU instead of name; if there are no SKUs, Quickbooks online will create them.

Quickbooks Online Settings

  • Set up your Taxes (under Sales Tax)
  • Set up your Chart of Accounts (Company profile › Settings › Chart of Accounts)
  • Enable Shipping and Discount (Company profile › SettingsCompany Settings in the Sales tab under Sales form content)
  • Enable Track Quantity on Hand, also in the Sales tab under Products and services.
