    QuickBooks Online

    QuickBooks has long been a standard when it's come to small business accounting. Their tools work, the user interface is fairly intuitive to navigate, and it has suited the needs of our small business (11-20 employees) for the past 10 years. However, as we continue to grow and come into a greater need to control our branding, we find that QuickBooks Online often limits us in customization and branding. Plus, it just has some odds quirks in the coding of how the invoices are setup up that often requires us to "fight against the system" in order to accomplish what we want in our invoice structure.

    Using TradeGecko requires to the company to make compromises. Which compromises depends on the business, what they are using for other 3rd party applications and what they sell.You need to be very good with excel since you are able to upload and modify most files, which gives you major control over your data. They however need to modify the way in which new inventory items get loaded, as it is quite awkward if you use variants.'Reports' as has been described prior has improved dramatically and most if not all can be downloaded in CSV/Excel format. This allows you to build your own reports with the data from the system.If your business is very complex in nature, TradeGecko probably isn't the system for you. If you are doing thousands of transactions a day, again this is not the system. However, if you are a small to smaller mid-sized business, the system, its cost and the 3rd party applications make it worth a first second and third look.

    Pros

    QuickBooks Online

    • It enables me to do a P&L for each specific program as requested by the county for the grant money that they give us.
    • It enables me to do [an] organizational budget as well as a budget for each specific program
    • It enables the accountant and the auditor access at any time for transparency
    Roxanne Jacobs | TrustRadius Reviewer

    QuickBooks Commerce (formerly TradeGecko)

    • Interface with WooCommerce.
    • Interface with Xero.
    • Maintain Perpetual Inventory (less than 0.001% difference in value of inventory in TG and Xero).
    • Works with ShipStation extremely well.
    • Works with major EDI vendors (with reservations).
    Wayne Spivak | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    QuickBooks Online

    • The budgets feature leaves a lot be desired - difficult and clunky to populate and maintain.
    • Reporting for Budget vs Actual is available but the ability to reforecast based on updated data is not.
    • The rules function to default common types of expenses isn't perfect and will get confused if like amounts or a number of similar items present.
    Charles Fashana, MBA | TrustRadius Reviewer

    QuickBooks Commerce (formerly TradeGecko)

    • - Couldn't integrate with existing QBO account. Had to set up a new QBO account and transfer all data, create lots of journal entries - was very time-consuming and labor-intensive. Caused some financial discrepancies to resolve.
    • - Have to process returns on Amazon and Shopify orders manually
    • - Tax-inclusive is not allowed - European sales are tax inclusive - can't import order with VAT included. Looks like the software is suitable for US only. Have to create such orders manually in Commerce and then manual journal entries in QBO
    • - Supports accrual accounting method only. In cash - it's a mess
    • - Support - not knowledgeable enough - I could only call for support (now they have chat) and they always had to get with the back-end and every call was not less than 1 hour. At the end I would get a link for the training materials
    • - Inventory not synching timely sometimes - I have a screenshot proving that inventory on our Amazon account was 0 but Commerce still had quantities, I had to manually press synch
    • - Shipping line from Shopify orders is not coded to Shipping income account but goes together with Sales of product income account
    • - When partial of the PO is received, not able to create a bill for the partial. There're only 2 settings: either bill created at the time of PO creation (for the whole PO amount - which increases your AP right away) or at the time the whole PO received. It works only when PO is shipped as a whole.

    It like the product 'right out of the box' and I trust Intuit will continually improve it over the years based on my experience with their desktop products. The large providers of Apps makes customizing the entire package relatively easy and seamless for a wide variety of business types.

    Do NOT use their premium payroll. It's expensive and [I feel like] their customer service is horrible. I spent almost 4 hours trying to get an answer to a simple question about a 941 form they filed. They kept transferring me around to various people and every single time they couldn't find the 941 form I had a question on. I had to do a screenshare to show them where it was! I got disconnected three times and they never called back. They also told me that I would have to talk to the IRS at one point. I refused and told them that they were filing these forms on our behalf, they were doing the calculations so they should be able to answer my questions. I asked several times to talk to a supervisor and they wouldn't transfer me to one. They just said that they could put in a request for a supervisor to call me back in 24-48 hours! It was just unbelievable how horrible it was.

    Support is great, all incidents been resolved. Quickbooks Online forum is very well organized and helpful. I like the fact that they let the community contribute in resolving issues. Most or many of your answers can be found online. You can also get help on YouTube, but the easiest way to get assistance is through their chat system.

    The person in charge of QB needs to be very accurate with record keeping and is recommended to stay on top of tasks. The biggest issue we have is reconciliation, and those issues occur only when too much time has occurred between reconciliations

    Alternatives Considered

    QuickBooks Online

    I have used Wave Accounting for another business. I selected QuickBooks Online over Wave because of the features available from QuickBooks. Wave is great since it is free, but I feel that paying for QuickBooks Online is worth it for the features. In addition there is such a robust support network and training available for QuickBooks.

    Each of the applications has a specific place. We select and implement the best solutions for our clients based on their budget and requirements. This is often determined by integration requirements. We like to say that every application with do a different 95% of what you need it to. There will always be a different 5% to forgo between applications.

    As we have grown along our professional path, we have also expanded our use of QB. The scalability is easy and features seem to be waiting for you until you need them. We have increased profits by over 10x from our first year in business to the current and have yet to find a reason to look elsewhere

    Return on Investment

    QuickBooks Online

    • Overall, QuickBooks Online is a great investment for the company of our size (small software startup).
    • QuickBooks Online supports all the key functions of our company's accounting team.
    • QuickBooks Online definitely made the life of our accounting team much easier which let us focus on more important issues outside of bookkeeping.
    Serguei Bykov | TrustRadius Reviewer

    QuickBooks Commerce (formerly TradeGecko)

    • No real ROI - we're stilling pulling reports from multiple platforms.
    • Positive - segregation of wholesale and DTC orders in Shopify.
