adam5532 Posted January 6, 2006 Author Share Posted January 6, 2006 Chris, Hello all, Pardon my interuption, but maybe someone can kindly answer a few questions before i install this contrib: Im looking for a QB utility that will automatically import each sale into QB after its status is set to "Delivered/Shipped". Is this done only by cron job or is there a way to automatically set this up? The description is light on this feature. QBI will import new orders, and then QBI can automatically change the status to "shipped" if you wish. It adds its own field to the db to determine if the order has been imported yet. QBI is involked manually, each day or whenever you do your packing and shipping. The capability to be started by a cron job or pseudo chron job will be added in a future version. Ideally, whats i'd like to happen is ... when my order gets approved, a tracking label is generated QBI does not handle shipping. There is an oSC contribution that will query UPS to determine the correct rates and arrival time, but it does not generate a label. I use a product called ShipRush at www.zfirm.com which semiautomates UPS or FedEx shipping and prints labels. A basic version of the same product is included with QB. and said order is queued to be sent or is directly sent to QB upon completion of order. Am i on the right track? My client uses QB and would like this feature installed. Im a novice when it comes to QB and will have my develper install the contrib. Is my client making the right desicion? Whats the benifit of using QB? Accounting? Should i convince him its a waste of time? osC is not a substitute for an accounting system. It can't handle bank accounts or all the operations and expenses of a business. It is pretty necessary to use some kind of accounting system, even for a very small business.
