QuickBooks is bursting at the seams with features. You can integrate your account with existing applications and add-ons. And if this wasn’t enough, you can even create your own bespoke platforms. While developing new software isn’t for everybody, it’s sometimes the best option if you need a customer-fit solution for your accounting needs. In this article, we look at some of QuickBooks Developer features in detail:
The API feature allows Developers to connect software to QuickBooks, which allows data to transfer and sync between each component. In simple terms, API is a collection of coding components that allow a secure connection between an app and a QuickBooks account.
QuickBooks has opened itself up to a wide and diverse array of new platforms with the hope it will help the software continue to develop and grow. Once a Developer creates an app and it is approved, millions of users will be able to see it through the QuickBooks online system. With app integration, you can leverage services such as the accounting and payment APIs to provide fantastic accounting and e-commerce solutions.
Connecting to QuickBooks with Web Connector
The QuickBooks Web Connector is an application that enables carefully designed web services to exchange data with desktop products developed by QuickBooks. For Developers, adding a new service to the list that QBWC can already communicate with can be as simple as downloading a file. Files that use the .qwc extension are capable of interacting with QuickBooks automatically.
