Item Sync with QuickBooks Online

Pull in all the Products/Services you use in QuickBooks for a seamless invoicing experience.

Using this guide, you can:

In QuickBooks, your Services are also part of what is called Products. Accelo can import in all your Services from your Products and Services list.

You can access your lists by clicking on the Gear Icon at the top right of the page, which will expose your options shown in the screenshot above.

Once your list is accessed, you’ll see there are a number of fields in common with Accelo, though the terminology is slightly different.
