Before you can list your application on Apps for QuickBooks Desktop, it must pass a technical review. The sections below detail the items that are required; make sure your app meets these requirements before submitting it. You must use the QuickBooks Desktop SDK, QuickBooks Point Of Sale SDK, or the QuickBooks Web Connector to meet these requirements, so be sure to include it when you create your app.
Apps published on Apps for QuickBooks Desktop must not only meet these requirements at the time of publication, but continuously after publishing. Intuit checks all apps every three years to ensure that they still meet the technical standards.
These requirements involve parts of your app that are displayed to users.
The API successfully passes data between your app and QuickBooks Desktop. Only QuickBooks Desktop SDK, Point of Sale SDK, or QuickBooks Web Connector calls are used to move data.
Details and test steps
To speed your review, you will be asked to outline the steps you follow to test this requirement. Include how to trigger a data exchange and where to look in your app or in QuickBooks Desktop to see evidence of success. If possible, please use QuickBooks Desktop sample data included in install.
