Available on select plans. Learn more.

Before you set up the sync, please learn more about How Items Sync from Jobber to QuickBooks

If you have clients in both softwares please see the Additional Notes below before setting up your sync.

How to set up QuickBooks Online Sync

1. Go to the Gear Icon > App Marketplace and click 'Get started' on the QuickBooks card.


2. Click Connect to QuickBooks. Jobber will prompt you to log in to your QuickBooks Online account if you aren't already, and authorize the connection. If you don't have a QuickBooks Online account, you will be prompted to make one. 


 3. After you have authorized the connection you'll be directed back to Jobber. Here you'll choose your version of QuickBooks. This is a very important step as the default version is QuickBooks US which will need to be changed if you reside in another country to prevent any sync errors.

4. Set your sync preferences next by selecting what information you want to sync to QuickBooks Online. If you haven't yet, check out how these items sync to QuickBooks so you know what to expect moving forward. After your first sync, your preferences will be saved for future syncs.



Your Jobber and QuickBooks account are now connected and when you are ready you can click the Sync to QuickBooks Online


Syncing is triggered manually so that you have complete control of your business information in both systems.

You can access the QuickBooks Sync & Settings page from two areas in your Jobber account. 

Click onto the QB icon at the top right of your screen and choose Sync & Settings.


Or, click onto the gear icon > Settings > Connected Apps and select QuickBooks from there.


Additional Notes:

  • Jobber connects with all QuickBooks Online programs except QuickBooks Self-Employed.
  • Do you have clients in both your Jobber and your QuickBooks Online account? If yes, syncing can cause duplicate client profiles in both systems. For this reason, we suggest either your QuickBooks account or Jobber account do not have clients in them before syncing. If you have more questions feel free to call our Support team 1 888 721 1115, or open a chat. 
  • If you should run into any errors or problems within QuickBooks, please refer to QuickBooks Support
