As one of the most popular eCommerce platforms today, WooCommerce offers a large variety of extensions that can be added to any installation. There are extensions for almost anything you can think of. These extensions will add new functionality to your store, depending on what you want. One of the more sought-after extensions is one that can integrate Intuit QuickBooks with your WooCommerce store. QuickBooks is a popular accounting software package for businesses to manage things like inventory, sales, and payroll. Integrating QuickBooks with WooCommerce can help your business save time and money. At Beyond the Brand Media, we generally choose from two plugins when it comes to QuickBooks/WooCommerce integration: WooCommerce by OneSaas and Webgility. In this article, we will discuss these two options and why we prefer to use them for our WooCommerce stores.
WooCommerce by OneSaas
WooCommerce by OneSaas is an extension for WooCommerce that lets you connect your small-to-medium sized business’s eCommerce store to your QuickBooks Online account. QuickBooks Online is Intuit’s cloud-based version of the software, which can be accessed directly from your web browser. When you install WooCommerce by OneSaas, any new products you create on your website will also be created in your QuickBooks Online account. When you make a change to the inventory in one place, it will update the inventory in other places as well. By automating this process, human-made mistakes are less likely to happen, and it will take much less time to update the inventory, customers, orders, etc. across your sales channels. Though they offer minimal documentation for developers, installation is a very straight-forward process and integrating your accounts is quick and easy.

While WooCommerce by OneSaas is a great solution for small-to-medium sized businesses, it is not an ideal platform for large businesses. For example, if your business uses QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise, you will not be able to use WooCommerce by OneSaas, as it is tied to your QuickBooks Online account. Under this scenario, we would suggest using Webgility. Webgility is a great solution for users who use QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise and sell across multiple channels. Much like OneSaas, Webgility ties in with QuickBooks and WooCommerce by automating your bookkeeping processes and keeping your inventory up-to-date across your sales channels. Additionally, Webgility makes it easy to manage orders, process shipping, and gain valuable insights. Installation is also a breeze–there is extensive documentation on their website along with video tutorials. To learn more about everything Webgility has to offer, just click here.
We highly recommend both of these extensions for WooCommerce–either one would be a great solution for your business, depending on your needs. If you are interested in or need help with integrating your QuickBooks account with your WooCommerce store, contact us here–we are happy to help!
