Salesforce to QuickBooks Desktop integration


Anyone implemented Salesforce to QuickBooks desktop integration. I can't use manage package. I need this to be completely custom. Please DM if anyone implemented this integration.

Is this an in-house development effort or will you be using a connector? This link from Shellblack gives a very good overview (https://www.shellblack.com/administration/options-for-syncing-salesforce-with-quickbooks/).

If you are using a connector, there are so many to choose from (https://appexchange.salesforce.com/results?keywords=Quickbooks)with various price points and nuances.

These seem to be highly rated:


In addition to the integration connectors mentioned in the Shellback post, you can also check out Jitterbit (https://www.jitterbit.com/solutions/quickbooks-integration/)and Zapier (https://zapier.com/apps/quickbooks/integrations/salesforce). I believe that using External Objects and Salesforce Connect (https://trailhead.salesforce.com/en/content/learn/modules/lightning_connect/lightning_connect_setup) is also a possibility but I assume this will be unnecessarily expensive, as this tends to run around USD 4,000 PCM.

If you are keen to do in-house development, then this link may help you: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/8179052/salesforce-quickbooks-integration-using-rest-api.

My experience tells me that using a paid-for solution is often cheaper in the long run.

I hope you find the above information is helpful. If it does, please mark as Best Answer to help others too.

I suspect it might not possible.

Please do not use the App Exchange. I have tested every QB-SF "connector" and spent over one year using integrators who claim they can do this well. I'm currently finishing a full QB-SF bi-directional integration and can guide you through this process. 

Feel free to reach out
Great, Can you Please share your email.
