In this guide, you will learn how to connect your QuickBooks Desktop company to PayPal via Synder with the help of PayPal QuickBooks Desktop integration. Once you finish your settings, the app will start receiving your PayPal transactions and import data with all necessary details in QuickBooks. Follow easy steps in the helpful guide, and enjoy seamless synchronization.

Important note: make sure you install the Synder desktop connector app to the same place (local PC\server) where your QuickBooks Desktop is installed. Otherwise, Synder will not be able to connect to your QuickBooks.

Important note 2: Synder will be able to synchronize data to your QuickBooks ONLY when the Synder desktop connector and QuickBooks Desktop are up and running.

If your QuickBooks\Synder connector is closed during the week you will not see PayPal sales in your QuickBooks and once you open Synder you will see them with “scheduled” status. Once you open both apps transactions will go through automatically.
