We recommend that you use the QuickBooks accounts that we have selected in the above image for your integration as well – this ensures the right entries in standard accounts.

Unable to find the recommended Accounts in your QuickBooks Account?

Some of the above recommended accounts do not come by default with a new QuickBooks account. They get created during transactions.

  • If your QuickBooks Online plan supports inventory and you have enabled “Track Inventory Quantity on Hand” from your settings, the the following accounts should be there already:
    • Sale of Product Income
    • Cost of Goods Sold
    • Inventory Asset
  • Creating your first invoice without a Payment will auto create the A/R Account Receivable account
  • Creating your first Purchase Order will auto create the A/P Account Payable account
  • Adjusting the quantity of an Inventory product will Auto Create the Inventory Shrinkage account

However, we are not Licensed Tax and Accounting experts and we recommend you speak with your CPA/CA about it.

4. Map Payments

When Primaseller creates Payments, it will need Accounts that will be linked to the corresponding Payment Methods. Please map them accordingly.
