Is there a way to import/mobile synced items from quickbooks desktop point of sale v18 to Gopayments with the proper tax settings for taxable and nontaxable items?

I am using Quickbooks desktop point of sale v18 and would like to use Gopayments for an upcoming event. I have both taxable and nontaxable items. When I use mobile sync the nontaxable items are listed as taxable. Is there a way to do the mobile sync and have the correct tax setting stay attached to the items or do I have to go through each and every item to make sure it has they correct tax setting?


Good day, yarnvault.

Thanks for joining the Community. I'm here to address your concern about importing mobile synced items.

Yes, you can import items from QuickBooks Desktop Point of Sale (POS) to sync to GoPayment. Just make sure to set the sales tax settings on the app.

Here's how:

  1. At the bottom of the GoPayment screen, tap on Settings.
  2.  In Settings, tap the Tax option. 
  3. In the Sales Tax field, enter the desired tax rate or have the app automatically calculate sales tax based on your location. Just click on the Location - based tax rate checkbox

When the sales tax should be applied to an item, open it and tap the Sales Tax On button. The sales tax you enter applies only to items.

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.
