That’s why we are especially pleased to announce that Event Espresso is now fully integrated with the Intuit (QuickBooks) Merchant Services payment gateway, not only furthering the capabilities of our WordPress event registration plugin, but helping our customers save time recording transactions. And we know how important that is:

    • The quickbooks (Intuit) gateway is available now.

  1. I just purchased the Quickbooks POS system and use event espresso for booking classes. Can these be integrated together.

    • Hi Chris, I’m sure it’s possible but it would probably require some significant changes to the EE API and integration into the Quickbooks POS system. Do you have access to build on to the QB POS system?

  2. When someone registers and pays for one of our training events – and pays by credit card – how much information about that registration will we will be able to download in our Quickbooks financial software. Customer name? Quickbooks “Item” (or event)? Total sale amount?

    • Hi Bethany,

      Yes, that’s right. Event Espresso will pass the purchase information to the quickbooks gateway. The data they save (personal information, and transaction information) should be available to import into quickbooks. The custom registration form details beyond the transaction details will not be available through the gateway because they don’t store that data. You could import into quickbooks via csv if you export it from Event Espresso. Does that make sense?

  3. Does EE integrate with Quickbooks Enterprise? If so, where is help information on the process/procedures?

    • Hi Rosie,

      Event Espresso doesn’t integrate directly with Quickbooks Enterprise, no. It connects to their payment gateway, then you could connect quickbooks to their payment gateway to record the transactions. Does that make sense?

    • Sorry for the delay. Intuit is only available with EE3, currently. Did you get that figured out?

    • As I mentioned earlier, we have a developer who devotes nearly all his ours to gateway, and right now he’s busy with gateways that have been sponsored. So, it may be a while before we can get Quickbooks done unless it is sponsored. But I will try to move it up the list because you and others are taking the time to ask for it.

  4. I, too, am needing Quickbooks merchant services integration with Event Espresso 4. When the only other option is to downgrade to EE3 (which happens to cost more than EE4 at this point) and hope for the best, it leaves me and others in the user base feeling not-so-Espresso.

  5. With Quickbooks payment gateway, what information is passed to QB? I use stripe, but it is near impossible to account for an event as stripe just sends the money. I am hoping that QB will credit an account for an event, and send fees to a sub account. Can someone provide an example of what is actually passed to QB gateway and how that translates into QB?
