Once in your practice, you can wind up in the situation when you have an open invoice in your QuickBooks Online and the payment in the Stripe account. As a rule, it takes so much time to find the correct payment and apply it to your invoice manually.

And here is where the question comes in: “Is there a way to automatically apply the Stripe payment to the open invoice in QuickBooks?”

Answering this question might look complicated. Probably, as something that requires reading infinite pages of those boring guides written for tech geeks in an incomprehensible language. However, the solution is simple.

Using Stripe QuickBooks integration by Synder, you’ll be able to automatically apply the payment from Stripe to the open invoice in QuickBooks and close it creating a payment linked to the invoice.

But first, ensure that these two conditions are fulfilled. 

  • Rule number 1

Make sure the customer name matches 100% in your QuickBooks and in Stripe, as the customer name is the field the app uses to identify are there any open invoices for this client.

  • Rule number 2

The date of your invoices should be earlier than the date of the payments. The app is not a fortune teller and can not apply the payments to invoices from the future.

Here’s the least annoying guide you have read:

  1. Go to Synder app, make sure you have connect Stripe to QuickBooks Online.
  1. Go to settings and turn on this magic feature you have been reading about:

Settings gear > General > Apply payments to unpaid invoices/Bills transactions. Change the switch to On

Settings Tab to apply payments to unpaid invoices/Bills transactions
  1. Update the settings.
  2. That is it. Now you can sync and see if it works.

Congratulations, you did it! All you need is to go to your QuickBooks and check the payment created for the invoice. 
Thank you for reading the guide, and keep tuned, as even more will come. Please contact us if you have any questions.
