Integrate Quickbooks with Magento 2

QuickBooks is a cloud accounting software which is suitable for small and medium-sized businesses to track expenses, create and customize invoices anywhere on multiple devices. It is a smarter tool for Magento 2 store owners to manage their businesses. However, Magento 2 can not integrate directly with QuickBooks. To solve this problem, Mageplaza develops Webhook extension to integrate QuickBooks with Magento 2 conveniently

What Is Webhook?

Webhook is a helpful tool which allows online stores to configure to send an API request to a configurable destination (URL) such as other servers or applications in cases trigger events including new order, customer login, abandoned carts, etc occur. As a result, store owners can instantly update important notifications and have suitable activities shortly.
