    Integrating QuickBooks Desktop


    Applies to: ONTRAPORT Plus and above.

    Connex for QuickBooks is a commercial plugin for QuickBooks desktop Pro, Premier, Wholesale and Manufacturing or Enterprise editions that syncs selected purchase and contact information from ONTRAPORT into QuickBooks. Connex for QuickBooks supports QuickBooks in the U.S. and Canada.

    • Creates new customers in QuickBooks when a new Contact purchases in ONTRAPORT
    • Syncs current Contact information into QuickBooks Customer database
    • Creates invoice payments in QuickBooks from ONTRAPORT orders

    Note: Because ONTRAPORT does not have a Product SKU field, you must manually update QuickBooks to map the Product Name to the QuickBooks SKU field.

    1. Click the profile icon at the top right in your ONTRAPORT Plus or above account.
