Quickbooks payment gateway 'developer' instructions: Out of date

Sorry guys, the instructions in “” just don’t match exactly to what I am seeing as an interface to generate the secret keys and all the other stuff (they seem to be created, somehow I did that, not sure all the bells and tiddles are checked though)… So I am at a standstill over the last three days of trying different things to move to the next step. The instructions seem based on an earlier version of the QBDev interface…I need clear up-to-date instructions that will allow me to hook up the payment gateway without all this trial and error and assumptions I am making and wasting a ton of time.

We do have a merchant account with Quickbooks.

I have a sandbox (again, somehow sort of interpreting the instructions with my divining rod) but cannot get it to work with the EE plugin… just on the edge of giving up. Thanks. I can provide a login if that will help via private message.

I just went into my developer account at and the UI doesn’t appear to have changed since the last time the instructions have been updated.

The instructions in the documentation mention the two types of Quickbooks accounts: The newer accounts use OAuth2.0 and the older accounts use oAuth1.0. The screenshots in the documentation show examples from an oAuth1.0 account, but the instructions explain what to do with an oAuth2 account:

OAuth 2.0 users: You’ll set the OAuth version option on the Event Espresso > Payment methods page to OAuth 2.0. You’ll copy from and paste to the Client ID and Client Secret fields.

There are also two sets of instructions: The first part, “Connect your Development (Testing) App to Event Espresso”, for the sandbox (they recommend testing with the sandbox before going live). The second part outlines how to connect to start taking real payments (production) and those instructions start under the heading “Create your Production (Live) App”.

May I ask which step are you stuck on? I can follow up with some additional clarification.
