Migrating Data from Desktop to 'Simple' Quickbooks online

I have Quickbooks Desktop 2016 Pro and need to do MTD, so purchased a subscription to Simple Quickbooks Online. I was unable to migrate the data to online for a couple of months due to Intuit internal problems, but now when using Movemybooks it says the migration can't be done to the Simple Quickbooks Online and I would need to upgrade to a more expensive version, which I don't need. How can I get my data to my online version?

Migrating Data from Desktop to 'Simple' Quickbooks online

Hi Phillip, Move my Books support migrations to QB Essentials and QB Plus; we're working to include QB Simple Start in this, but currently we do not have an exact date on when this will be.

Prepare your new QBO Simple Start account


then you may have other options:

1. Utilize a migration tool. i.e TP Exporter for Desktop, TP Importer for Online.


2. Purchase a 3rd party conversion service.
