Transferring from Wave to Quickbooks



I've been dilly-dallying over this and need some advice, please. I have managed to export my Wave data as a csv file - however this is an all transaction list (including double entries for credits/debits etc). 


I can see that if you have tidy lists of invoices or your charts of accounts, these can be swifty imported using Quickbooks itself, but that isn't the data that I have managed to pull out (I don't need Customer lists or Vendors etc - they are very few) 


So - do I try and import my data, or is there a better way of just moving everything over to Quickbooks? 




Thanks Smiley Happy


Transferring from Wave to Quickbooks

Hello, @sammisixx.


Let me share with you the transactions that can be imported in QuickBooks Online. 


These are the following: 


For other transactions that unable to import into Quickbooks, I'd suggest communicating with the Wave support. This way, they can guide with the whole process on how to import debit or credits transactions into QBO. Also, provide the simplest way of importing data. 


Please browse through this article about how to resolve issues when importing data to QBO: Common questions about importing data to QuickBooks Online.


Let me know if you have other concerns by replying to this thread. I'm here to help. Take care!
