Go global

Any app can be marketed and used in any region, whether it’s published on the QuickBooks app store or not. However, we provide region-specific app stores so users can more easily find apps tailored to their home area.

Intuit Developer currently supports app stores in the following regions:

  • Australia
  • Canada
  • India
  • United Kingdom
  • United States

How to publish in multiple app stores

Want to publish your app on multiple (or all) supported regions of the QuickBooks app store? All you have to do is create an app listing for each region and submit them for marketing review. You can even duplicate a single listing to multiple different regions to save yourself time. After doing so, you can proceed to customize each listing with region-specific language, currency, benefits, etc.

Once your app listings have been approved, your app is published on the QuickBooks app stores you specified.

Developing for other regions

When developing an app to support regions that do not have an Intuit app store, you can get a free trial subscription for the country you wish from www.global.intuit.com.This will give you 30 days to test for free before you have to pay for a subscription.

Considerations for global apps

While publishing your app on multiple QuickBooks app stores is a simple process, there are some challenges to consider when going global:

  • Remember to provide support for users in time zones other than your home region.
  • If you don’t want to publish your app to the QuickBooks app store, you’re free to market privately and skip the review.
  • Try to test your app with accounts made specifically for each country you want to target.
  • Define currencies your app supports: home currency, vendor currency, customer currency, employee currency. Help with currency.
  • Transaction objects implement legitimate tax structures. Help on global tax model.
  • Localized text versions of your documentation and terms can be helpful for apps that span multiple regions
  • Character sets: US editions of QuickBooks Online support ISO-8859-1 (extended ASCII) character encoding. Non-US editions of QuickBooks Online support UTF-8 character encoding.
