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!

The eCommerce industry has made remarkable growth in the last few years. With sales of around US$ 3 Trillion all over the world in 2019, We don’t require any proof to judge the growth of eCommerce marketplace industries all over the world.
The shift of interest of users from physical shopping towards the online eCommerce industry has forced vendors to move from the centuries-old traditional methods to move their shops online.
Many new eCommerce marketplaces have been termed successful in this COVID era; at the same time, well-established companies like Amazon are breaking their records. With the successful integration of drones, droids, AR, and VR into the shopping scenario, the user base is diverging more and more. People have started to actually prefer online shopping than physical shopping.
