Is there an inventory scanner compatiable with apple products for QB online.


Hi there, shawana.

I'm here to share some information about how it works in QuickBooks Online. 

The Inventory feature in QuickBooks Online Plus allows you to track quantity, sales revenue, cost of goods sold, and edit your product and services by batch. At this time, inventory scanning isn't an option in the program. 

However, you can capture photos of your inventories from your apple device, then attach/save them to the program through the QBO application. All you need to do is click the Burger icon in your Homepage, scroll down to Products & Services, then click the Attach icon (see the screenshot below).

You can also take a sneak peek in our Intuit Marketplace for a third-party application you can use to scan inventories. From there you can get a better comparison of products to match your business needs.

We have barcode/inventory scanning available in the QuickBooks Desktop version though. In case you want to consider, you can check out the articles below for more information:

I'd also suggest you reach out to our product engineers to share more of your thoughts about integrating inventory scanning in QuickBooks Online. Feel free to do so through this link:

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
