Can Connex sync orders from Stripe to QuickBooks?

  1. Login to Connex.
  2. On the Connex dashboard, click add connection.

  5. When prompted, click continue to login to Stripe through Connex.
  6. Click the button to pair our app.

How do the fields map?

We sync Stripe charges as QuickBooks orders. Here is a field mapping diagram:

Invoice number Order number, if one exists and automated deposit matching is deactivated.
Receipt number If no invoice and automated deposit matching is deactivated, then this field is mapped to the order number.

  1. Login to Connex.
  2. Click manage.
  3. Expand orders.
  4. Expand sync manually to QuickBooks.
  5. In the order status field, enter invoiced.
  6. Click save.

Location Mapping

You can easily map the Stripe order description field to the QuickBooks Online location area. At the configure page, go to the field mapping tab. Choose description. 

Stripe Fees

Connex can add credit card fees on each order. Enter the merchant fee item name in your Connex settings. For more details, read these instructions.

Can Connex automatically match sales and deposits using the match deposits tool?

Each morning, Connex will locate sales from Stripe that Connex synced to QuickBooks. Each sale Connex syncs contains the Stripe reference number. Connex will add the fees to each deposit. To enable this feature, select match deposits on the left of the configure page. For more details, read this article.

Should I sync with Stripe or my website?

In some cases, our client's website is missing code to send Stripe order details. We recommend syncing with your website directly if it is one of our supported platforms.

How do I test with the connection?

Connex can sync no transactions made in the Stripe testing mode. Create some live transactions for a dollar. Do not cancel them.
