Use your Gmail address to send invoices in QuickBooks Online

SOLVEDby QuickBooks301Updated 3 weeks ago

Learn how to set up QuickBooks Online to send invoices from your Gmail address.

Connect QuickBooks to your Gmail account to send customers invoices from your Gmail address. Then, you can find the invoices you sent from QuickBooks Online in your Gmail Sent folder. This way you can manage your emails with customers all in one place.

Connect Gmail address to QuickBooks

When you connect your accounts, QuickBooks Online uses your Gmail account to send invoices to your customers. You can only connect to one Gmail address, but you can use the same Gmail address for multiple QuickBooks accounts.

  1. Create an invoice or open an existing one.
  2. Once you fill out the necessary fields, select Save and send to open the preview window.
  3. Select the From ▼ dropdown.
  4. Select Add Gmail address, then Connect Google account.
  5. Sign in to your Google account.
  6. Select Allow. Your Gmail address now appears in the From field.


  • Once connected, you won’t have to sign in to your Google account again.
  • Your Gmail inbox won’t be accessible in QuickBooks Online, but any user with permission to send an invoice can use this email address. 
  • Once you send an invoice, the status will display as Sent on the invoices page. If there’s an issue sending an invoice to the primary email, you’ll see an alert in QuickBooks Online. If there’s a problem sending to a Cc or Bcc email address, Gmail will send you a notification email.

Update your sales form settings

You may want to update the email that appears on your sales forms as your Gmail address.

  1. Go to Settings ⚙, then select Account and settings.
  2. In the Company page, select Contact info.
  3. Enter your company email, then select Save.

Disconnect your Gmail address

When you remove the Gmail address, QuickBooks uses the default email to send invoices.

  1. Create an invoice or open an existing one.
  2. Once you fill out the necessary fields, select Save and send to open the preview window.
  3. Above the customer’s email, select the From ▼ dropdown.
  4. Select Remove Gmail address.
