This product does not work as promised. It has been a daily source of frustration since installing it.

Some issues of note:

-Product inventory does not get updated from QBO to Shopify, so even after receiving a purchase order in QBO, our inventory constantly reads zero or negative in Shopify. We have plenty of stock available. This makes inventory counting impossible, renders reports meaningless, and makes ordering difficult.

-Price and cost fields are not mapped properly: sometimes, the price in Shopify is mapped to the cost in QBO - resulting in selling items at cost if our staff doesn't catch the error. We have more than 4000 SKUs - it is impossible for us to catch them all. Sometimes no price comes through to Shopify, other times, no cost.

-Vendor fields aren't mapped properly: the Vendor in Shopify always defaults to your store's name, instead of the vendor in QBO from whom you buy the product.

-Because you can't map anything manually - you just have to hope that correct products are aligned - if you sell something through Shopify that hasn't been mapped properly, instead of selling a catch-all item in QBO, Bold makes a second item. Much of our inventory was therefore erroneously duplicated in both QBO and Shopify.

-Sometimes the sync option would cycle through in an hour, but at least twice it got caught somewhere in the midst of syncing and would sit, partially completed, for over a week.

-No customer service or help options were available for us to ask questions.

The amount of time we wasted chasing down these issues has led to a loss of revenue and time. This is not the product for anyone who wants to successfully and efficiently run a business.

I am exceptionally frustrated with the way this organization changed it's pricing and disabled features with little to no notice.

I have been using BOLD to sync my Shopify sales to Quickbooks through their free integration for quite some time (not a limited time free trial). I received an email Thursday, June 29th stating the free integration will be phased out, and all must switch to a paid plan. No problem, I get it. Things can't be free forever. Problem is, this was the beginning of the 4th of July holiday and retail rush, and we could not make a change immediately. By July 1st - 2 days after reciecing the email from Bold - over a holiday weekend, no less - our integration ceased working.

This is exceptionally disruptive to our business, and I am very disheartened by the lack of consideration and communication for their small business users.

ABSOLUTE SCAM. Was originally advertised as a free service to sync from shopify to quickbooks. Now they are charging MORE than what it costs to have quickbooks every month. Absolute scam. Avoid at all costs.

If I could vote 0 stars.. I WOULD. For lack of a better word, this app SUCKS. It's the slowest things since dial-up and when you try to re-map or make a change with the sync, half the time it doesn't even load. I've been literally trying to switch a SKU mapping for two items. A SIMPLE AND QUICK TASK, and it has taken 3 days since the mapping won't load. And when it finally does, when you hit "edit" to change it, NOTHING HAPPENS. What a piece.

Wouldn't recommend this app until the integration of taxes works better. When it brought over the tax from Shopify to QBO it put all the tax in PST and didn't split the GST out. Made for a big mess on my PST audit this spring.

It used to be free to export Shopify orders to Quickbooks online. Then they came out with this app by BOLD, and it's now an extra fee to use an existing service we already pay for.

The worst part is the export is always filled with errors that we have to manually check and fix. Additionally, we were able to export a whole month of transactions but when BOLD took over, we were told by BOLD support that the app can only handle about 3 days worth of transactions per export. Using this paid app feels like a downgrade from the already glitchy, but free app previously.

Use to be a great apps now they charge it and even worst many order dont sync and you have to manually enter it into quickbook.

Got the basic plan at 200 order per month. And I'm only at 152 and Bold charge me extra fees for every Extra fees. Really dissapointing, hope I find a better solution to Sync with Quickbook

Awfully disappointed that we are being forced to pay for this integration. As another seller noted, we already pay Shopify and QB separately for their services. Now, without any warning Bold has taken over, and it is forcing us to pay $30 a month for merely passing on the transactions. Of course Shopify is no bystander. They can now enjoy payment for a function which should have been native to the platform. Feels like extortion.

Says you can export 30 monthly orders for free... I am reconciling for last year with exactly 30 orders and I have hit my threshold?
Ridiculous, come on guys.

I am happy to change my review if you get this fixed up!

What happens when I am killing it in sales 2019? I'll have to go somewhere else?

Hope you can fix it up

This app stopped working back in November. Sent them several emails and they kept saying this is the first time this has happened and we're looking into it. If you look at other reviews apparently this has been happening for years, so it's not the first time, they should know by now why it stops working out of nowhere. They were no help at all and didn't fix the problem. I honestly don't even think they were working on it. I kept the app for months with hopes they would resolve it and even though it didn't work at all, they were still charging me my monthly fee. I recently got fed up and deleted it and moved on to another app that works and it's free.
