Assembly Items

I'm in South Africa and it seems as if BizTechnlologies SA Agent) no longer had a contract to sell desktop QB. I've just subscribed to Quick Books Online. I see that I cannot create assembly items on QBO, only bundles.

As a manufacturer, I need to build items I sell from bulk and this is not possible in QBO.

I heard from a Intuit specialist in the UK that I cannot upgrade my desktop 2016 to 2019 - they are not allowed to sell it anymore due to legal restrictions / software is no longer compliant with their governing body or whatever.

It seems as if I am stuck with QB desktop 2016.

I was also told by the UK Intuit specialist that I could buy an inventory plug-in that would enable me to build my assembly items and also incorporate this with QB online.

Does anyone else have this problem and what plug-in do you use, if you use one?

Hi there, @KingFelmet.


I see that you've posted the same question twice, and the other one was already answered by my colleague. Just in case you haven't been notified of the new response, here's the link:

You can purchase a 3rd party service to convert data from QB Desktop UK version to QB Online South Africa version. Then use a 3rd party app for a manufacturing company to integrate with QBO.
