QuickBooks Point of Sale and QuickBooks Desktop doesn't sync automatically in the initial setup. You still need to set up the Financial Exchange structure. This is a process of sharing information between these two programs.
Here are the processes that we'll take to set up the Financial Exchange Structure between QuickBooks POS and QuickBooks Desktop:
In QuickBooks Desktop, change the Preferences for the Financial Exchange Setup.
Establish the connection between QuickBooks Desktop and QuickBooks POS.
Initiate a Financial Exchange of data between the two programs.
Review what data, activities, and accounts are affected during the exchange process.
My POS and QBdt do synchronize (Customers, Vendors, Receipts) but the Exchange process does not send the Items over from POS to QBdt. The items stay in POS only. When I do the exchange, the receipt goes over to QBdt, Then I view the invoice in QBdt, that's when I'm seeing Item and Item Number listed in the invoice.
