Ecommerce Success Without Creating Your Own QuickBooks API
The costs, time, and potential mistakes caused by manual data entry limited these businesses from integrating with services that could have increased their revenues.
In order to improve their bottom lines, these small businesses started looking for a solution to integrate their ecommerce platforms with QuickBooks. Connex provided the solution they were looking for: automatic (two-way) syncing between ecommerce, shipping solutions and QuickBooks.
After using Connex, these businesses no longer had to waste their resources on manual data entry. Instead, they were able to expand to multiple selling channels shipping solutions, and other ecommerce integrations to grow their businesses.
How Will Your Business Benefit From Building Integrations With Connex?
Connex allows third parties to build a custom store integration. Our site will ping a page on your website.
A custom integration is beneficial to both you and your business. Over 30 ecommerce, shipping, inventory management and accounting platforms integrate with Connex because it’s a one-stop-shop for their customers.
If your customers are struggling with syncing their orders between QuickBooks and their sales channels or shipping tools, they may not be able to engage with your services fully.
By building an integration with Connex, your customers will be able to keep their books up-to-date using our QuickBooks API.
In other words, it will be easier for some of your customers to use your platform because of integrations Connex offers with QuickBooks Desktop and QuickBooks Online.
The advantage of Connex over other data-syncing solutions, is that it syncs orders and inventory from multiple ecommerce sites with both QuickBooks Desktop and QuickBooks Online.
Benefits of Building an Integration to Connex vs. a Building Your Own QuickBooks API
#1: It saves you time
From a developer’s perspective, it takes much less time to build an integration with Connex than to integrate with a QuickBooks API. It would take months of special training to understand all the business rules of QuickBooks. In comparison, a developer can build the integration with Connex in a few days.
#2: It saves you money
In many cases, building the integration from scratch is too expensive and time consuming. To build the integration to QuickBooks yourself, you would have to find a programmer, pay a deposit, and hope the integration works. By building an integration to Connex, you have the peace of mind that your customers are using a solution that keeps their books up-to-date.
#3: We provide the support
If there is an issue with Connex, then our team provides support. Your team is off the hook for most sync related issues. If you build your own API for QuickBooks, then you are responsible for updates and providing technical support.
