QuickBooks - Transaction Pro Importer
Vin65 Support does not offer assistance with setup or configuration of the Transaction Pro Importer. This is a manual process. You will want to contact the application provider or look to a Consultant Partner
for more assistance.
In most cases, you can get your orders to QuickBooks by using a third party app called Transaction Pro Importer. By using Transaction Pro Importer, you can get your sales and inventory information into your QuickBooks accounting system.
Here's the flow of the feature:
Orders (Vin65) > Export Report (Vin65) > Import Report (Transaction Pro Importer) > Sales Receipts (QuickBooks)
Reports are always exported in .txt format. They are usually more easily manipulated and reviewed in Excel.
To open the txt. File in Excel:
1. Right-click on the file and select Open with...
2. Click Browse to select your MS Excel program.
3. Click OK. Transaction Pro Importer will take the import in either a .txt, .csv, or .xls format.

More Information - Is the Transaction Pro Importer Right For You?
Transaction Pro Importer does not work automatically when downloaded it requires set-up and mapping to your QuickBooks chart of accounts and item list in QuickBooks. Transaction Pro Importer can be downloaded as a free trial version to see if the application will work for your accounting processes. There are also so other items to consider:
- Transaction Pro Importer only works with PCs.
- Transaction Pro Importer Will work with online version of QuickBooks.
- Transaction Pro Importer Will work with the Canadian & US versions of QuickBooks.
- All the SKUs in Vin65 must match exactly to QuickBooks. If you have a lot of SKUs and are not planning on tracking inventory through QuickBooks, this may not be worth your time to set up and sync constantly.
- All your Sales Associates in Vin65 must match exactly to QuickBooks and be limited to 5 characters.
- This is a one way export from Vin65 to this app. Any orders placed directly in QuickBooks do not flow up to Vin65.
- This process will create sales receipts, or invoices, for each order.
- Transaction Pro Importer is a manual synchronization process you have to export and then import. Most wineries choose to do this weekly, or monthly.
- All support for this process and the app is given by the app company or a consultant, not by Vin65.
- The first time you import the report into the app you will need to map the fields (i.e. Vin65's 'Order Number' needs to be matched up by you to the QuickBooks 'Receipt Number', etc).
- Partial refunds cannot be uploaded into QuickBooks. Thus, if you have this feature turned on in Vin65, you may not wish to use it.
- Fully voided/refunded orders should not be uploaded into QuickBooks. This may require some removal/manipulation of the export from Vin65 prior to importing.
