Description

This comprehensive course introduces students to the specialized accounting practices for e-commerce businesses, primarily focusing on the utilization of QuickBooks Online. In the digital marketplace, e-commerce businesses—entities that engage in online sales of goods or services—often rely on third-party platforms such as Shopify, Amazon, or eBay. This course is designed to address common challenges that arise in managing accounting data in this unique business model.

Students will learn about data selection from third-party platforms and payment processors for their accounting systems, methodologies to organize the data efficiently, and strategies for effective inventory management. A key objective is to determine what level of sales data detail should be transferred into QuickBooks to ensure a balance between comprehensive financial reporting and system performance. The course emphasizes the importance of data summarization to streamline the accounting process and avoid software slow-downs due to data overaccumulation.

We will delve into the principal methods of importing sales data from third-party e-commerce platforms into QuickBooks: utilizing bank feeds, manual journal entry, or employing integration software. The course will provide a detailed analysis of each method, discussing their benefits and drawbacks, and offering guidance on the appropriate circumstances for each use. QuickBooks Online’s built-in integration capabilities with e-commerce platforms such as Shopify, Amazon, and eBay will also be explored.
