QuickBooks for Amazon sellers

The Amazon Business Purchases app connects your Amazon business account to QuickBooks. It saves time and keeps your books current.

The app imports your Amazon Business purchases into QuickBooks, categorising and linking them to your bank or credit card records. Then, you review and approve the work.

Note: The Amazon Business Purchases app works only with Amazon Business accounts. It cannot connect your personal Amazon or Amazon Seller account to QuickBooks.

The app then starts importing your Amazon Business purchases into QuickBooks. If there are many to import, you may not see them all right away. Do not worry; the app keeps going until the job is done.

After the initial import, the app checks your Amazon Business account four times daily and imports the latest transactions into QuickBooks.

Note: Currently, the app cannot update QuickBooks more frequently or on-demand.
