Don’t know whether this feature is on the radar or not, but I’d like to see order information being able to flow into a Point of Sale systems like QuickBooks POS

We are going to be looking into this shortly ourselves. Would love to get feedback on the features you would like for this - i.e realtime integration - or are you interested in the accounting side only?

Just want to be able to export my web orders into the QuickBooks POS rather than enter directly which I have to do with Ebay now since product info (UPCs) can’t be matched.

I would be interested in seeing someone develop quickbooks xml integration down the road as well, but it’s very involved. I’ve played with the OSCommerce QB integration mods, and there were too many inconsistencies between the systems for us to use any of them in the end. I forget the exact reasons why.

Not trying to dig up old posts, but in keeping things relevant, I have started the QuickBooks Sync group over in Magento Groups Click here to head on over there and join so we can get you involved in the project.

We’ll begin the discussion of features and such shortly. I have been spreading the word in other threads that have mentioned QuickBooks integration, and I expect to get going here within the first week or so of February.

We can use all of your help. Those who have extra time available and can provide needed skills such as web programming, problem solving, (maybe some design or HTML/XML creation), testers who have access to QuickBooks and Magento, and even software programming (for a possible web-to-software connector for automated syncing) would certainly be most helpful, but the group is wide open for any members to join, and we can use everyone’s ideas and feedback as the project progresses.

I have always felt it important to have QuickBooks integration with Magento, and now is the time to get rolling with it. So go sign up, then we’ll be in touch with the next steps and plan of action for the project.

See ya there I hope!
Scott

P.S. If you are willing to provide your skills in the project, I will arrange to have Roy send you a free Magento license. Errr, um… just go sign up already! smile
