I am upgrading our office from QB desktop and QB pos to all online qb. 

We have directions on how to get the desktop files over but no one can seem to direct me on how to get all of  our pos files over. Please send help !

Export POS files to QB online

Welcome to the Community, @Kylawhite73. I've got some information you need so you can move your data from QuickBooks Point of Sale to QuickBooks Online. 


QuickBooks Point of Sale only links to the desktop versions. I'd suggest looking for a third-party app that can integrate with QBO. You can either go to the Apps menu or access them through the QuickBooks App Center


Here's how to find apps within QBO:


  1. Go to Apps from the left menu. 
  2. Enter Point of Sale in the Search box.
  3. Select the app to open its profile. View the other apps by selecting them. 
  4. Choose the right app for your business. 
  5. Click Get app now



Alternatively, you can also move your data from POS to QBDT then migrate files from QBDT to QBO. Here’s an article for further guidance: Move your QuickBooks Desktop file to QuickBooks Online


Also, I’m adding this guide here to learn more about the differences in how your books appear when hen moving data from QBDT to QBO: Learn how features and data move from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online.

Need to clarify your question. Would you rather stick with QB POS to connect to QBO or else?

In QuickBooks Desktop Point of Sale, go to File > Utilities > Import. From the Data Import Wizard, select Next. Select the type of data to import then Next. Select Default template on how you want to import the data and open the Import Template. Select Next and follow the prompt.
