Does Quickbooks Point of Sale have a syncing option with QuickBooks? Do you need to keep both the file and data on the same computer or can you store you data in a different spot?
Yes, you can synch QuickBooks Point of Sale and QuickBooks. The synch (called the financial exchange) goes much smoother if you have both files on the same computer. You can setup the connection to the QuickBooks file by going to File > Preferences > Company > Financial
. Make sure to also have your QuickBooks file open the first time you make the connection.
I also recommend changing your settings to Detail item descriptions sent for customer charge account transactions only so you don’t blow through the file size and/or list limits in QuickBooks Pro/Premier which will force an expensive upgrade to QuickBooks Enterprise.
