Import Sales Orders into QuickBooks with Transaction Pro

For importing orders into QuickBooks for PC, NuORDER recommends a third-party application called Transaction Pro Importer for QuickBooks. Transaction Pro Importer guides you through mapping the fields from our standard order export into your corresponding QuickBooks fields.

Under this process, you will use the Export button on the Orders tab in NuORDER to generate a CSV of your order data. Then you will import that file into QuickBooks using Transaction Pro Importer. 

Download and purchase Transaction Pro Importer


The below guide provides steps to help you set up your import. Transaction Pro Importer also offers an online help forum, help videos, as well as email support for 30 days after your purchase. (They’re good—we’ve contacted them!)


Item Numbers

Every QuickBooks Item should be a concatenation of the style number + color + size. This unique identifier can then be loaded into the NuORDER product data as the UPC number. (Please note: This field is case sensitive.)

If Transaction Pro Importer does not find a match for a product, it will create a new record. If you do not want Transaction Pro to create a new item, go to the Program Options page which you can access from the first screen.


Customer Records

Customer records must be identical in both systems to match when importing order files. To ensure that there is no difference in customer records, export customer data from QuickBooks and load data to NuORDER. Customer record is not case sensitive.

If Transaction Pro Importer does not find a match for a customer, it will create a new record. If you do not want Transaction Pro to create a new customer, go to the Program Options page which you can access from the first screen.


Working With Your NuORDER Order CSV

By default, your order file from NuORDER will be ready to import to Transaction Pro without any adjustments. If you are viewing and/or manipulating your NuORDER order file before you load it to Transaction Pro, be sure to sort the data by Order Number before loading it to Transaction Pro. Otherwise, Transaction Pro will create multiple sales orders with duplicate transaction numbers.


About the Free Trial Version

If you are using the trial version of Transaction Pro Importer, the transaction date will be randomly set. If you want to do a test run with an order file to make sure it works, be sure to test a small order. Otherwise it will take a long time to delete the test order from QuickBooks. Once you purchase the full version, you can map it to the NuORDER order date.
