Section 2: How does the Square integration with QuickBooks actually work?

Users need to have both a Square account and an online account by QuickBooks in order to begin. They can easily create these accounts via the corresponding websites if they have not done so already. The Connect to Square app, which can be downloaded from the Square App Marketplace or the QuickBooks App Store, must then be installed. Users will be asked to grant the app permission to access its QuickBooks and Square data during installation. After installation, the app keeps a close eye on all transactions made on the user’s Square account. Then, depending on the user’s preferences, it imports these transactions into QuickBooks Online once a day, presenting the data.

After import, the application generates sales receipts for every transaction in QuickBooks Online, incorporating essential information like the total sales amount, item specifications, modes of payment, and related costs. Moreover, it easily facilitates account reconciliation by seamlessly matching these purchases with deposits made to banks from Square.

QuickBooks Online gives users the option to examine imported transactions and make any necessary changes. They can also adjust the app settings to suit their unique business requirements by deciding which customers, products, and accounts to use for the imported transactions.
