QuickBooks Integration Wiki

Intuit (the people that make QuickBooks) provides a few different APIs you can use, depending on what type of application you're building, and what you're looking to accomplish.

Choose the one that best fits or that you want more information about.

Intuit Partner Platform

If you're building a SaaS application (i.e. an application that you resell to many other users) you should probably be using the Intuit Partner Platform. From here, you have two choices:

  1. QuickBooks Federated App: If you want Intuit do charge your customers' credit cards, and then cut you a check every month. Intuit will take a 20% revenue share from the total billed.
  1. QuickBooks Intuit Anywhere App: If you want to bill your customers yourself. Intuit will charge you $5 USD per connected QuickBooks company file per month.

QuickBooks SDK

If you're building a custom or one/off integration for QuickBooks, you'll need to use the SDK instead.

  1. QuickBooks Web Connector: If you're integrating a website into QuickBooks, you should use the Web Connector.
  1. QuickBooks QBFC/COM Components: If you're building a desktop/Windows application, you can use the SDK QBFC and/or COM components to talk to QuickBooks.
