How to Export Orders into QuickBooks

What is QuickBooks?

QuickBooks is a complete accounting solution for small businesses and the self-employed. They provide services to easily enable you to complete your self-assessment, manage VAT, send invoices and lots more.

The Financial Export Tool we provide as part of our Order Management system allows you to export your order data in a variety of different CSV formats. One of the options we offer is a QuickBooks compatible CSV.

With Create, you can export a QuickBooks formatted CSV of all your orders into one file, which you can import into your QuickBooks account.

Please read below for further details of how.

1. Log in to your Create Account

2. Select Shop on the top menu.

3. Click Order Management in the left-hand menu

4. Select Orders from the expanded menu
