Coming soon: Reimagined PayPal Connector by QuickBooks

In a nutshell: The PayPal Connector to QuickBooks will soon be updated with several improved features:

  • Review transactions: PayPal transactions can now be auto-imported and reviewed before they hit the books. PayPal transaction data, including sales, fees, purchases and transfers, can now be found on the App Transactions tab next to Banking. Here, you can review, add, exclude, and undo transactions.
  • Get more detail: Where available, sales receipts will capture line-level detail, such as items sold, discounts, shopping, and tax.
  • Track fees separately: When adding a transaction from PayPal, we’ll automatically record the PayPal fees to an expense account of your choice, so you don’t have to manually enter them.

Use and track product variants, Etsy integration, and shipping in QuickBooks

In a nutshell: Three new updates help product-based businesses save time and effort by managing more back-office tasks right in QuickBooks Online:

  1. Product variants: Your clients can streamline their inventory management by creating product variants and tracking inventory for each variant. For example, instead of creating separate products for each color and size combination, clients can create one product and define variants for each color and size combination. This reduces setup time, and allows you and your clients to spot opportunities for growth by identifying top-performing variants. Note: This feature is available in QuickBooks Plus and Advanced.
  2. Etsy channel: Etsy native integration is now available as a sales channel, in addition to Shopify, Amazon, and eBay, with an inventory management option. Note: Those using QuickBooks Simple Start can connect one sales channel, those using QuickBooks Essentials can connect three sales channels, and those using QuickBooks Plus and Advanced can connect unlimited sales channels.
  3. Shipping: Now, there’s no need for your clients to subscribe to a separate shipping tool; they can ship with QuickBooks. Clients can create shipping labels, get deeply discounted carrier rates, and enjoy seamless invoicing integration. Note: This feature is available in QuickBooks Simple Start, Essentials, Plus, and Advanced.

Organize and share company structure using QuickBooks Online Payroll

In a nutshell: Clients using QuickBooks Online Payroll can now generate easy-to-read organizational charts and directories to help their employees better understand, and stay in touch with, their broader team.

The days of manually documenting reporting structures are over. Your clients can now visit Payroll in QuickBooks Online Payroll to see what their organization looks like from a reporting standpoint. From here, they can toggle between a row-by-row list of employees or a more visual diagram of their organization.

They can adjust their org chart as needed by assigning or reassigning the roles of manager or direct report, or by expanding and collapsing layers of their organization. Any changes applicable to QuickBooks Workforce will also be reflected there.
