With the QuickBooks Online integration, you’re able to create QuickBooks invoices, estimates, and sales receipts using HubSpot workflows. 

Please note: these actions are only available for quote-based or deal-based workflows.

Contact and line item information in HubSpot is used to create invoices, sales estimates, and sales receipts in QuickBooks.

  • For contacts: the Name and Email address contact properties are used to match a HubSpot contact record to a QuickBooks contact. A new contact will be created in QuickBooks if no match is found. If there are multiple contact records associated with the quote or deal record in HubSpot, the first associated contact will be used.
  • For line items: line items in HubSpot must be associated to the quote or deal records enrolled in the workflow to create an invoice, sales estimate and sales receipt in QuickBooks. HubSpot will match a line item in HubSpot with the product in QuickBooks. If no match is found, the invoice, sales estimate, and sales receipt will not be created. 

Please note: it is recommended to enable product sync in your QuickBooks settings, and using QuickBooks products for deal and quote line items to ensure that an invoice, sales estimate or sales receipt is created.
