Connex can sync customers, newly created products, and orders from WooCommerce to QuickBooks. Connex can sync inventory updates from QB to WooCommerce.


Here are the prerequsites:

  • Your website must have an SSL certificate.
  • If you have the WooCommerce iThemes plugin, uncheck enable HackRepair.com's blacklist feature. Uncheck filter long URL strings. Go to the plugins menu. Deactivate and reactivate the plugin. You can also whitelist the connexforquickbooks.com IP.
  • Disable the Relevanssi search plugin.
  • If you are updating inventory from QB to WooCommerce, disable ModSecurity on your website. If you don't, then you'll receive a 501 not implemented error in your log.

Unpaid Orders, Invoices and Payments

Sales receipts have a $0 balance, so only paid orders should reach QuickBooks. The default Cloud Cart Connector settings will skip unpaid orders. If you're creating invoices, the system only makes payments for credit card orders or orders that say they are paid in full. Our system can keep checking the same orders and when they are completed, insert them. If you want to change this behavior, follow these steps:

  1. Login to Connex for QuickBooks.
  2. Click submit
  3. If you want to see the invoice first and payment later, select invoices payments if paid under the transaction type dropdown.
  4. Under the order export tab, enter complete in the order status field.
  5. Click save and sync.

Replace # Sign

WooCommere sends us a # sign before each order number. You can replace it using our rules engine. See Replace Order Number # Sign for the rule set and rule.

Custom Fields

Custom fields should be bound to the post meta. Please see this article on custom field support.

How do I sync PO numbers to QB?

Using the WooCommerce Purchase Order Gateway, you must save the PO number to the post meta field. Once complete, map the custom field to the PO.

Partial Refund Support

Connex can sync a credit memo with the total refunded. Please contact us about upgrading to the WP JSON WooCommerce API. You need to download a new QuickBooks pairing file, after we upgrade your account, and remove your old one. In the sync manually to QuickBooks section, enter completed,processing. When you modify these orders, we will receive the refund and sync it.

Inventory Sync

Our tool works with no WooCommerce plugin for advanced inventory. Please look at this guide for where our tool updates stock.

Make sure that your products have stock tracking turned on. Make sure that back order is turned on, if items can have negative quantities:
