We've partnered up with QuickBooks Online, a premier accounting software, to offer customers an easy way to sync their Corpay One tasks with the rest of their financial records.

What does the QuickBooks integration do?

Corpay One's integration for QuickBooks Online automatically syncs document data from Corpay One to QuickBooks Online, including vendor invoices and payments:

  1. When a bill is submitted to your Corpay One account, the integration automatically creates a vendor expense entry in your QuickBooks Online account under that vendor. If the vendor isn't already on your vendor list in QuickBooks Online, Corpay One will automatically create it for you.

  2. When the bill is paid via Corpay One, the integration automatically creates a vendor payment entry in your QuickBooks Online account under that vendor.

What data can I sync between Corpay One and QuickBooks Online?

Here's how data flows between Corpay One and QuickBooks Online (the arrows in the middle column show which directions the data flow):

  • FYI: Corpay One will automatically import all your existing vendors from QuickBooks Online once when you set up the integration. After that, vendors will only sync from Corpay One to QuickBooks Online, and not the other way around.
