Import from ShipStation into QuickBooks Self-Employed?

Signed up for QuickBooks Self-Employed that is integrated with my Etsy shop. I use ShipStation for shipping orders (labels & postage). As of April 2018, I switched from Etsy for printing labels to ShipStation.

I went into ShipStation because they have the QuickBooks integration. So I click the 'Connect to QuickBooks' button and it takes me to the QuickBooks website. This is the message I get: "To continue, you need to have a QuickBooks Online subscription." Problem is - I already have a subscription to QuickBooks Self-Employed. All I want to do is integrate my ShipStation shipping account with QuickBooks Self-Employed so that those expenses are included. Why is it asking me to subscribe when I already have a subscription? Am I not able to sync ShipStation with Self-Employed?



Thank you for the detailed information, Amy.

QuickBooks Self-Employed integration with ShipStation is unavailable. That's why you're prompted to subscribe to QuickBooks Online. You might want to check QuickBooks Online, it's one of the QuickBooks products used to manage sales and expenses and keep track of your daily transactions.

You can check out to check if you can also integrate Etsy in QuickBooks Online.

Let me know if you have additional questions.

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.
