Today’s news is big. In fact, our product team has been hard at work for months developing enhanced features specifically aimed at making business easier for online sellers. Because that means something different to each of our customers, this list of enhancements covers a lot of territory. Read on to find out more, and click the hyperlinks to see a detailed description and instructions for using each feature.
Inventory management made easier
Automatic Inventory Sync: You can now automatically keep inventory synced in your accounting across sales channels. This feature can be scheduled to run hourly or nightly. Now managing your inventory will take even less effort.
Warehouse Inventory Tracking: QuickBooks Desktop users who fulfill orders from multiple warehouses can now track inventory by location. This is helpful for those who’d like to scale their business and stay sane at the same time.
Real-time Assembly Build: Unify can now post assembled products in QuickBooks Desktop as orders are received in real-time. This feature allows you to still make a sale even when quantity of an assembled product falls to or below 0.
Yup, you guessed it. Unify for Square is now a thing.
Finally, there’s a solution that automates and syncs all Square sales data, liberating SMBs from operational headaches and bookkeeping woes. This first-of-its-kind, easy-to-deploy software records and syncs all Square data reliably and automatically, and it’s brand new. In fact, just today we announced this new solution with Square to save small businesses time and money by automating their bookkeeping for them. This amazing solution empowers Square merchants to automate, schedule, and post all of their sales information directly into NetSuite or QuickBooks. With options to post either individual sales or daily summaries, these integrations—Unify for NetSuite and Unify for QuickBooks respectively—automatically record all expenses, revenue streams, and sales tax to easily reconcile accounts.@Webgility announces #Unify for @Square. #Sync sales with @NetSuite, @QuickBooks, or @Xero Click To Tweet
Like all versions of Unify, Unify for Square takes the mystery out of financials—letting merchants see and record fees in their NetSuite or QuickBooks account for each Square transaction from all locations. Now companies can easily track what they’ve charged in sales tax to be ready come filing time. In addition, merchants can, for the first time, fully reconcile e-commerce transactions in NetSuite or QuickBooks and see exactly what they’ve paid in marketplace fees and expenses, Square charges, and shipping costs.

New Unify integration simplifies sync with leading solutions from ShipStation, ShippingEasy, Skubana, and SkuVault
Today we announced an enhanced integration with cloud accounting software company Xero (NZX: XRO, ASX: XRO) that makes syncing of financials, inventory, and shipping data with leading systems easier than ever.
The upgraded integration enables sellers to sync data between Xero and shipping apps such as ShipStation and ShippingEasy, quickly track revenue across sales channels, and record expenses and fees from marketplaces such as Amazon and eBay simply and accurately. In addition, new features allow sellers to better utilize the power of Xero’s built-in inventory capabilities by syncing price and quantity with online channels, and automatically building their inventory list in Xero from their sales channel data. Also with the new integration, sellers can keep up to date on vendor purchase orders when using advanced inventory tools such as Skubana or SkuVault.
