Intro to QuickBooks Apps: Invoice Your Customers

2 min read

Plumber, diving instructor or freelance dog groomer – whatever you do while working for yourself, everyone has something in common: you need to get paid.

Invoicing the old way was slow and inefficient; mailing invoices and waiting for checks to be sent back added lots of unknowns into your finances. In the digital age, there are plenty of apps, including features built right into QuickBooks® Online, to help you quickly create accurate invoices, get you paid faster and keep cash flowing. These apps and features will help you spend less time invoicing, and more time getting paid and growing your business.


Automate your accounts receivable. Reclaim your admin time.

How it works with QuickBooks: Harness the power of QuickBooks’ sophisticated accounting platform and InvoiceSherpa’s streamlined invoice collection technology. Transparent profit reports and categorized transactions integrate with an automated invoice reminder and collection process, keeping you on track with your expenses and maintaining a solid cash flow.

Invoice with Google Calendar

Add Google Calendar events and descriptions to QuickBooks invoices.

How it works with QuickBooks: If you’re using Google Calendar to track hours, work or appointments, you can easily create QuickBooks invoices from those calendar events. With the Invoice with Google Calendar App, you’ll have access to all your billable work right from inside QuickBooks. With just a few clicks, your invoice will be populated with all the correct info and sent off to your client.

QuickBooks Invoicing for Gmail

Combine the power of QuickBooks with the ease of Gmail.

How it works with QuickBooks: After you install it, open an email thread and select the QuickBooks logo on the right. Sign in to your QuickBooks Online account. Then, you’re set to easily create, send and track invoices right from Gmail. All your current customers, products and services show up in Gmail and any new ones save in QuickBooks. We’ll save any invoice details in QuickBooks for you, so everything stays up-to-date without the extra work.

QuickBooks Payments

QuickBooks Payments does the work for you.

How it Works: You’ll save time and money with smart e-invoices and free bank transfers. Plus, QuickBooks Payments’ automatic bookkeeping gives back your most precious resource– your time.
