You will need to have either a QuickBooks Online or QuickBooks Desktop for PC account set up before you begin. QuickBooks Online Simple Start and Freelancer/Self Employed are not compatible with the integration feature.

Only Orders can be exported to QuickBooks, not Quotes. Start using Orders in your workflow before you set up the Integration. Once the QuickBooks Integration is set up, you have full control over which Orders get exported and when, they are not automatically sent over.

We can show you how CounterGo integrates with QuickBooks, but we can't advise you on best practices for QuickBooks, financials or taxes.
