Can I use the QuickBooks sandbox account to test integration with a GoCardless sandbox account?

I have both QuickBooks Online and GoCardless accounts and I would like to test the end-to-end integration without impacting my live accounts. I have already setup my GoCardless Sandbox account and I understand that QuickBooks uses a test drive QuickBooks instance (https://qbo.intuit.com/redir/testdrive_uk) for testing purposes.

 

But how do integrate the two so that I can test end-to-end?

 

As far as I can see, there is no way to access 3rd party apps using the test drive instance - Apps is missing from the left navigation pane and clicking Set up Direct Debit with GoCardless on the New Invoice page results in a 404 Page not found! error.

 

I just want to test QuickBooks and GoCardless end-to-end. Any and all help/advice appreciated.

Hi, tictag.

 

You can instead use a trial version of QuickBooks Online to integrate to a third party app. To get one, please check this article: https://quickbooks.intuit.com/uk/


If you’re still unable to integrate it with the trial version, I’d recommend getting in touch with the Intuit Developers. You can reach them by visiting their Community forum: https://www.developer.intuit.com/app/developer/homepage

OK, thank you, this makes sense. I could create a trial account to test these scenarios but it would be quite tedious have to do this every 30 days, including configuration, testing etc. Still, it's a workaround.

 

I will reach out to the developers because most cloud-based application platforms these have sandbox environments to enable end-to-end testing e.g. PayPal.

 

Thank you :)

For information, yes they do have sandbox environment, you just need to sign-up to be an Intuit Developer. The sandbox environment do appear to allow 3rd part app integration, which solves my problem :)
