Converting from SAGE to QBO and Dataswitcher

I understood that all SAGE conversions to QBO needed to be done by QBO administration. Is this correct? It appears that an individual could upload their own SAGE data to Dataswitcher and not go through the QBO administration.

Converting from SAGE to QBO and Dataswitcher

Hello jennd2,

I'm happy to hear from you again! Converting from SAGE to QuickBooks can be a complex process but the good news is that QuickBooks makes this transition as smooth as possible. I'd be glad to steer you in the right direction so you can start taking advantage of the powerful features offered in QuickBooks. 


Using the DataSwitcher is a great way to convert your data and you're more than welcome to explore this route using this link here. The link walks you through the conversion checklist and provides the info you'd need to successfully convert your data. I'd also recommend you to check out this detailed article with more info on: Converting Sage 50 data to QuickBooks Online.


Another option to convert your data would be using third-party apps. Third-party apps provide the autonomy to convert your data with ease and I encourage to search for these apps right from our app store using this link here. If you have more questions about using the DataSwitcher, don't hesitate to ask. I got your back.
