Quickbooks Desktop & GoPayments - How am I connecting them WITHOUT QB POS?

I work for a landscape design/build company we use QuickBooks Desktop Pro 2018 to invoice all our clients. We have a huge item library that we use to meticulously track for Quarterly and Year End reporting. We also have merchant services so our clients can pay online for our services.


The owner of the company just released a book and she would love to sell it through the company meaning I was planning on entering an item for her book so that we can track it whenever we want. She is also planning on doing several speaking events where it would be nice to sell the book in person to those that don't already own it so we ordered the new card reader through Intuit and I've downloaded the GoPayments app. However our item list doesn't sync through even after I've pressed sync items multiple times over the last week. So I've done lots of calling and researching and a lot of things keep pointing me to the POS which we don't have and don't want to have. 


Should I just create the item in the app, sell it, and just pull the payments through in the end into our Desktop account? This all seems very convoluted. But then again I'm used to Square which is super straight forward...

Quickbooks Desktop & GoPayments - How am I connecting them WITHOUT QB POS?

Hi @JHermanns,


Thanks for the question!  I'd be happy to help you.  


You are correct; items from QuickBooks Desktop do not sync to GoPayment.  Only Point of Sale has that functionality.  As you described, you would have to create the item in the GoPayment app and then download the mobile transaction to your QuickBooks.  


This article will give you those steps:

I hope that answers your question!

Explore the mobile sales management app and integrate it with your QB Desktop. One of the solutions costs $1495/mobile device for the perpetual license.
