Understanding the QuickBooks Integration

Modified on Mon, 22 Apr at 4:51 PM

QuickBooks is one of the market leaders for businesses around the world to manage their accountancy/financial procedures and is widely used by our customers.

Pet Sitter Plus can be configured to connect directly with QuickBooks Online, providing transaction level integration with our seamless invoicing, payment processing and client information features and more.

Your financial transactions and data created within Pet Sitter Plus can be automatically "synced" directly into your QuickBooks Online account dramatically reducing the cost of bookkeeping, while improving the accuracy of your overall accounting solution.  


How does Pet Sitter Plus integrate with my QuickBooks Online Account?

When invoices, payments and any other financial transactions are created in Pet Sitter Plus, all the data can be immediately synced over to your QuickBooks Online account, even creating a basic client record if one does not exist in QuickBooks already.

Important - there are some things you need to be aware of:
  • The integration isone way only." When Pet Sitter Plus is synced with QuickBooks Online, data such as client information, itemized invoices and associated payments are copied from Pet Sitter Plus to QuickBooks, not the other way around.
  • Financial transactions can be synced as far back in time as required in batches of 300.
  • Pet Sitter Plus can only be connected to one QuickBooks Online Integration. If you want to disconnect a QuickBooks online integration and reconnect to a different QuickBooks instance, you will need to Contact Support.
  • Pet Sitter Plus can only integrate with QuickBooks Online Plans for Essentials, Plus and Advanced. The Self Employed and Simple Start Plans will not be able to Integrate with Pet Sitter Plus.

Are there circumstances when I should NOT choose to integrate Pet Sitter Plus with QuickBooks Online?

Yes, there are scenarios when the integration of Pet Sitter Plus would not be beneficial to your company, these are:

  • When you only want to integrate specific client transactions. This integration syncs ALL client financial transactions. You cannot select specific Client transactions/invoices to upload to QuickBooks Online.
  • If you currently do not produce your client Invoices and payments within Pet Sitter Plus. However, with help from our Support Team you can commence producing all your client invoices and payments through Pet Sitter Plus, which would then enable you to integrate with QuickBooks Online.
  • You wish to sync your financial transactions to your own specific Chart of Accounts. Our integration syncs to a specific Chart of Accounts which cannot be changed, and these are:
    • PSP Bank
    • PSP Income
    • PSP Bad Debts
    • PSP Tips
    • PSP Tax Agency Payable
