Foxycart + QuickBooks desktop editions for Windows

If you encounter any problems or have any questions, please feel free to contact us and we'll be glad to help.

First, you need to configure QuickBooks:

  1. Place an order (if you haven't already) for the Foxycart QuickBooks service here: http://consolibyte.com/
  2. You will be provided with a .QWC configuration file, data feed URL, data feed key, and password. Please download and save this .QWC file.
  3. Download and install the Web Connector from Intuit's website: http://marketplace.intuit.com/webconnector/
  4. Open up QuickBooks, and open up your QuickBooks company file
  5. Open up the QuickBooks Web Connector (a shortcut was placed on your Start Menu under Start > Programs > QuickBooks > Web Connector)
  6. Find where you saved your .QWC configuration file, and double-click the .QWC file
  7. The Web Connector will load the .QWC file, and prompt you to allow access to QuickBooks. You must choose to allow access to QuickBooks. You do not need to allow access to personal data like social security numbers or credit card data. It does not matter which option you choose, as long as it's one of the ones allowing access to QuickBooks.
  8. A panel will load into the Web Connector with a 'Password' box on the far right. Enter the password provided to you in the password box.

Next, you need to configure Foxycart:

  1. Log in to your Foxycart store at http://www.foxycart.com/
  2. From the Foxycart menu, choose the STORE > advanced options
  3. Check the box labeled 'Would you like to enable your store Data Feed?'
  4. Enter your data feed URL in the 'data feed url' box
  5. Enter your data feed key in the 'data feed key' box
  6. Click the button labeled 'Update Advanced Features'

That's it! You're done! Place a test order on your Foxycart store. We will activate your account and orders will flow into QuickBooks within 24 hours.
