VAT Relief For Disabled Customers

Hello. I seem to have came up against a major stumbling point of Shopify... (However, I might be wrong) Our customers who are disabled or have specific health conditions who are wanting to buy from us have the right to not pay tax on any orders they make. This means that the price they are paying on the store is the VAT relief price. However, when going through the checkout process the pr...

Quickbooks and Xero Sync Apps by Shopify - No Longer Free?!

My client just forwarded me an email from the CEO of BOLD saying they have taken ownership of the Quickbooks sync and now want to charge him $20 a month. https://help.shopify.com/manual/apps/xero I can't hate on BOLD for charging for their apps - this same client uses Quantity Breaks, Product Options, and Marketplace.

Hi there,  We currently have our shopify site connected to our Quickbooks accounting software. We've been running the two together for almost a year now and still find it very labour intensive, with the data coming through from shopify often being out by £0.01 which, although slight, involves editing and rematching over two thirds of our transactions when reconciling the account.  We've j...

Hello,  I am working with a client who has a shopify store and who uses Quickbooks Online. I set up the integration app successfully, and did a test manual export for a date range.
