Watch as one of Copper's engineers walks you through a demo of the integration, and then read below for more detailed instructions.
The QuickBooks integration displays the QuickBooks invoices and estimates associated with a lead, person, company, or opportunity in the ‘Related’ section of that record. This is what it will look like on each record:
And here is a close up, which includes a view of how estimates are displayed as well:
For each invoice or estimate shown, the following details are displayed:
- Invoice/Estimate Name/Number
- Due Date
- Total Due
- Balance Due (not shown on Estimates)
Clicking on the invoice or estimate name will pop up a full view of the selected item.
The number of invoices and estimates displayed will correspond with the number you choose when setting up the integration. Below the initial number of invoices and estimates displayed, you can click to expand the list.
Invoices and estimates are displayed in order of created date.
Invoices and estimates show up on each record based on a unique identifier for that record type. For Lead and Person records, we pull in invoices and estimates associated with the email address on the record. For Company records, we pull in invoices and estimates associated with the email addresses of all people related to that company. For Opportunity records, we pull in invoices and estimates associated with the email addresses of all people related to the opportunity and for all people related to the opportunity’s related companies.

- Can I connect a non Copper user's QuickBook account to my Copper account?
- Yes, as long as you have their QuickBooks's username and password.

- We match records in QuickBooks to Copper by the email address found on the Lead or Person record. If a QuickBooks record has multiple emails in the email section, the integration will not work.
