What's the best way to integrate QB Primier with eCommerce website?

Hi, we just built a simple eCommerce website. We have our own shopping cart. It can create customer account and generate sales orders.


We're wondering if there's a way to sync these new customer data and sales orders into QuickBooks - we're using QB Premier 2019 (Desktop version). I know there are the web api for QB Online, but we don't have any plan to convert to QB Online yet, so we'll have to stuck with QB Desktop version for at least a few years.


I did some research, it sounds like there used to be something called RESTful APIs for QB Desktop but got decomissioned long time ago? So what other choice do we have? QBXML SDK? Does that mean we have to create a desktop app and have it running on the same machine which is running the QB Primier? Any other RESTful means? Free Apps? Paid Apps?


Any suggestion/advice is appreciated!

Thanks a lot for the reply. I'll look into those apps. 


But still, if we want to take things into our own hands, what option do we have? Do we have to go through qbXML? Any other ways?
