QuickBooks Online


Set Up Level Recommendation

We recommend that you have your account set up to at least Level 2. This will build out your products and pricing in SumoQuote and line items will flow directly into QuickBooks for seamless entry.

When you integrate SumoQuote with QuickBooks Online, no data will automatically transfer. All signed reports can be exported to QuickBooks Online individually to control the flow of your financial data. As the QuickBooks integration is more complex than our other integrations, we recommend watching the video guides below to learn how to use the integration.
