Controlling if products are synced to QuickBooks as Inventory or Non-Inventory

WooCommerce products and variations can be synced over to QuickBooks in two different ways:

  1. Automatically synced when created in WooCommerce (must be enabled in MyWorks Sync > Settings > Automatic Sync)
  2. Manually pushed in MyWorks Sync > Push > Products.

When a product or variation is synced into QuickBooks Desktop, there’s one setting in WooCommerce that controls whether it’s created as an Inventory Product or a Non-Inventory product in QuickBooks Online. This setting is called Manage Stock.

If the Manage Stock option is checked for a product/variation in WooCommerce, it will sync to QuickBooks as an inventory product. Otherwise it will be synced as a non-inventory product. 

Once a product is synced to QuickBooks, it can’t be changed from Inventory/Non-Inventory through our integration – so ensure your Manage Stock settings are correct before pushing products.

Here is an example of where the Manage Stock setting is when editing a product or variation.
