Im a small business on a limited budget - but growing FAST!
I feel Im pretty good at keeping my own books but it is SO time consuming doing so, and I need to automate it and streamline it - there has to be a better way!
So far I have looked at MYOB but they dont really streamline well with PayPal and merchant fees - its more for a mortar and bricks business. I couldnt even see how to enter postage on a sale....
I have just had a look at quickbooks but Im not sure about this either. I just cant find what Im after. I want something to keep track of my sales for me, fees and be able to sync my bank account with so I can see what is coming out and what Im spending money on.
So tell me - because Im sure there is a way and you guys are doing it! What are you using? Which system is best? I like my little excel spreadsheets but as I said, I need to automate it better - this is chewing up to much precious time.
Finally someone who is in the same boat as us!
We've been looking at Quickbooks & Xero and unfortunetely both don't sync the transaction/merchant fees UNLESS you purchase an expensive app from Shopify's App Marketplace.
We purchased Quickbooks yesterday with good hopes that Shopify's own free app would do this but unfortunetely it doesn't - same issue with Xero.
If we find a fix we'll let you know, but for now - the hunt continues! If you find anything let us know :-)
