Zen Cart Export Customers to QuickBooks

To Export customers from your online store to QuickBooks follow several steps of the wizard:

1. Select Export Customers to QuickBooks option and click next to proceed.

2. Export Preview allows you to filter your data by any parameter. Note that all customers listed here will be exported to QuickBooks. You can use native greed filters (click on column headings) and sorting in order to filter or rearrange items. Filters will affect the result of export.

  • Customer Identification Method - Export will search for a customer using selected method of identification. The customer will be modified if found, if not - new customer will be added.

3. Export options may affect results. Please read and check your selection carefully.

The first option allows you to connect to your QuickBooks database.

  • If QuickBooks is running right now, select first option to connect to your data.
  • If QuickBooks is off, you can connect to its data file (.qbw) anyway, just browse the one you need to proceed.
Also note that you may need to allow access from QuickBooks integration plugin to QuickBooks. Please check if Quick Books asks any confirmation (it will popup automatically if needed) and proceed.
Import/Export Method:
  • Create and Modify - will add new product if it is not available in database yet and modify those products that were found
  • Create Only - will only create new items and will not modify existing if found (only add new products)
