Product Mapping FAQ

Can I stop syncing orders if products are missing from QuickBooks?

You can instruct Connex to NOT create new items in QuickBooks, if there is no matching product.


Connex is programmed to create a new inventory item in QuickBooks if the product does not exist or there is a mismatch between the product SKU in your shopping cart/shipping platform when an order syncs to QuickBooks.

  2. Select the Products Menu in the Left Navigation Bar.
  3. Select Missing Product Mapping.
  4. Click the edit button next to the product you wish to map.

    If you want to use the auto-complete tool in QuickBooks Desktop, you can upload a list of QuickBooks products using the link on the left (click here for instructions). This allows the dropdowns in Connex to be populated with your data, so we can eliminate spelling errors and casing issues. (This step is optional and many users just enter the item into the field.)
  6. Enter the QuickBooks item.
  7. When finished, click Save Settings.
  8. If you use QuickBooks Desktop, run the web connector.
