Is there a way to import your google contacts?

It's great to see you here, whptkoout


Yes, there are two options on how you can import your Gmail contacts to QuickBooks Online. You can select Connect your Gmail account when creating invoice, or import them as an Excel file. 


Here's how to link them via the invoice option:


  1. Go to the Plus icon and select Invoice.
  2. Click the drop-down arrow in the Choose a customer field, then Add New.
  3. Click Connect your Gmail account

If you want to import them using an Excel file, please open this guide article and scroll down to the How to export contacts from Gmail section: How To Import Customer Or Vendor Contacts From Outlook, Excel Or Gmail.

Is there a way to import your google contacts?

Is there a way to force a refresh between Google Contacts and Quickbooks? When I add new contacts to Google Contacts they sometimes don't appear in Quickbooks for quite a while. Even logging out of Quickbooks and back in again doesn't seem to help. Any thoughts?

Hello there, @COM_Mike.


There are times that the contacts fall into the vendor's list depends on the mapping when importing contacts. To make sure, let's check the vendor's list first to double-check.


Here's how:


  1. From the left panel, click Expenses.
  2. Select the Vendors tab.
  3. Look for the contacts.

If the contacts aren't on the list, let's try disconnecting your Google contacts to get this fixed. Let me guide you how.


  1. Open any invoice.
  2. Select Save and Send.
  3. Then, next to your Gmail address, select Remove Google account.
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to remove your account.
