Introducing, the PaySimple + QuickBooks Online Integration
For most small business owners, QuickBooks Online is the easy choice when it comes to finding an accounting solution. It’s the gold standard of accounting software with over 2+ million customers around the world.
Slightly more difficult, is finding a way to accept payments that is not only flexible enough to meet your business’s—and more importantly, your customers’—needs, but also versatile enough to integrate with your accounting solution.
That’s where PaySimple comes in.
Why Your Payment and Accounting Tools Need to “Get Along”
Perhaps you’re still thinking, “I have a payment acceptance solution and I have an accounting solution. That’s good enough, right?”
Not unless those tools are capable of “talking to” one another. When your payment solution is not connected to your accounting solution you create a situation where double-entry is required.
Without integrating the two systems together, you will be forced to batch upload all payment information into your accounting software. Unfortunately many business owners are familiar with double-entry and the negative outcomes that this manual process can cause.
This manual process can lead to:
- Human error
- “Dirty” data
- Wasted time
- Costly mistakes
All of these issues can be disastrous come tax time, or any situation requiring you to share your books with another entity. Errors that arise from double-entry not only present issues for your business, but also for the accountant you may have hired to do your taxes leading to increased costs. Increased costs are also found internally due to this manual process. If your business is manually uploading payments to your accounting software, you are paying staff to complete work that is not revenue generating. You could also be paying staff extra to work more hours to sort out errors that occur from the manual process. These scenarios increase your internal costs and fatigue staff as they are unable to work on handle their main priorities.
For these reasons, businesses who don’t find a payment solution that integrates with their QuickBooks Online account are at a distinct disadvantage to those who do.
