It is possible to download a PurchaseOrder with the API ?


We are facing difficulties integrating Quickbooks on our app.

Language : PHP
SDK used :
Sandbox environment : FR

Entity we are facing the problem with: Purchase Order

When we are creating an invoice for a client, we have to send a purchase order to our supplier. Creation on those 2 PDF is not a problem but we have to send both PDF to client (invoince) and suplier (purchase order). Given the fact that we are sending the documents from our server, we have to download them on the latter.

For the invoice, we don't face any issue (via DownloadPDF method) but we can't do it with the purchase order.

We are able to use the "UI" to print it and send the purchase order via email mais the risk is for us to send one email per purchase order. As we have a marketplace model, our provider could receive a lot of emails.

Do you know any way to download a purchase order via your API?

Thanks for your help.
Best regards

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.
