  7. Click Save
  8. Scroll down to the section called Tax Accounts
    • First, create a Default one so that unclassified taxes go there
    • For each Region/Province/State, you can add a Tax Account name (see below example)
    • When Exporting Orders to QuickBooks Desktop, taxes will appear as line items, posted to the appropriate account

You are now ready to import or export your data! A few things to note:

  • You should import/export in the following order: 1. Customers; 2. Products; 3. Orders; 4. Transactions
  • Import = Move data from Quickbooks to Helcim Commerce
  • Export = Move data from Helcim Commerce to QuickBooks.
  • Due to QuickBooks limitations, transactions (payments) and orders (invoices) cannot be imported
