I have been using Zapier to create new customers and invoices in QBO when I receive a PayPal payment. Works great and their support is outstanding!

DRY: Don't Repeat Yourself
We use Zapier in our business to better implement the DRY principle. We have Zaps set up so that customers created in Quickbooks Online also are automatically created in our help desk app, appropriate mailing lists, project management app, etc. Every time we add a new customer, we save approximately 20 man-minutes in the onboarding process by automating this synchronization through Zapier.

Integrate with any service in under 15 minutes
We use Zapier to automatically import customers and invoices from Freshbooks into Quickbooks Online. It works quite well, is easy to get set up, and saves us a few hours a month all for ~$15. Highly recommended. Be aware that it's a simple integration so it won't map line items from Freshbooks into line items for invoices for Quickbooks, for example. This means that most invoices need some manual editing afterwards, but you can't beat the price and simplicity until there's a native Freshbooks <> QBO integration.

You need this Zapier
I use QBO everyday and after a while it becomes tedious to repeat certain tasks like adding customer or invoices.
Zapier automates all this so you don't have to do it manually anymore.
Example: Customer fill out a Wufoo Form online and Zapier integrates all the info into QBO. It's a cinch!

Zapier is amazing
With this service you can trigger interactions between hundreds of popular web apps. It's pretty straight forward. Anyone can program a zap even if they don't write any code.
I have mine programmed to automatically add new customers to my quickbooks contacts from gdocs and to trigger a new sales order to the proper customer account each time they book a date with one of our providers and it shows up on their gcal. The possibilities are endless.

Save time & money!
Zapier works great! With it we were able to set it up so our CRM tool will auto create a new customer inside QB Online and also hook up our project management system to auto create invoices for billing.
This saved us both time and money on doing data re-entry.

Ok, but missing functionality
To automate some tasks such as adding vendors, customers, invoice etc. ...it will work.
Missing functionality that hope will be included in future such as mapping a Purchase Order from one zap to another.

Eliminated 12 Hours of Labor Monthly, Reduced Billing Errors and Saved us 3rd Party Software Costs
The Zapier App allowed us to move from a semi-manual invoicing process to one that is fully automated. The system no longer has human error and we were able to eliminate another software we were paying for monthly.
Great Job Zapier Team.
