July 2022 – Product Updates

This July, we rolled out new features and integrations, enabled more use cases for more integrations, and made many quality-of-life improvements. As ever, you can refer to our public roadmap to view and vote on what’s next.

Integrate with BigCommerce via Commerce API

Commerce API now supports BigCommerce. Commerce API now provides standardized access to data from twelve platforms. Many more are on the roadmap as we continue to work to connect the small business economy. 

BigCommerce has long been a leading eCommerce platform for small and medium-sized businesses while also powering eCommerce for many familiar enterprise-sized global brands. Adding BigCommerce to Commerce API opens the door to better-integrated products and services for tens of thousands more eCommerce businesses.

Support hosted QuickBooks Desktop

QuickBooks Desktop remains a popular choice for small businesses and their accountants. Accounting API already supports QuickBooks Desktop, however it has not previously been able to support users who host the software with providers such as Right Networks or Intuit’s Cloud Hosting option. As of this month, Codat can also be used to connect to these hosted QuickBooks Desktop instances.

GET and POST direct costs from and to QuickBooks Desktop

Accounting API’s support for QuickBooks Desktop now also encompasses direct costs, which can be both pushed and pulled. A direct cost is a type of account transaction that can represent a range of activities, such as purchases paid for at the point of sale. This new feature lets products built on Codat expand their integration support to customers who use QuickBooks Desktop, particularly where integrations are used to automate bookkeeping.

GET transfers from Sage Business Cloud

Accounting API can now be used to retrieve transfers from Sage Business Cloud. Transfers represent movement between a business’s bank accounts as well as deposits that settle a bill or invoice. Pulling transfers can be useful when building integrated features for expense management, point-of-sale software, and other platforms seeking to save customers time and money on back-office admin tasks.

POST journal entries to Microsoft Dynamics 365

Accounting API also now supports pushing journal entries to Microsoft Dynamics 365. Journal entries can be used to represent a range of activities in accounting. They provide a flexible way to record data prior to the general ledger. Sending journal entries to Microsoft Dynamics 365 enables and complements a wide range of accounting automation use cases, with particular utility for payroll and HRIS (Human Resource Information System) software.
