Do you have a great SaaS application or service that helps small businesses?
It’s straightforward to get started – follow this 3-step guide and you’ll be on your way.
1. Sign up for a developer account.
2. Explore the tools and APIs
When you signed up with Intuit Developer, a QuickBooks Online development sandbox was automatically provisioned for you. Login to your sandbox and view the sample data that it comes with, and learn about how to use QuickBooks from the UI. Explore the QuickBooks Online APIs with the API Explorer. The API Explorer can connect to your sandbox or to any other QuickBooks Online company that you may have.

3. Begin Coding
- Create an app at Intuit Developer to generate your Application Token, ConsumerKey, and ConsumerSecret. You’ll get two sets of tokens—Development and Production. Development tokens can only be used with your sandbox, while Production tokens can be connected with any trial/production QuickBooks Online account.
- Use our widgets to Connect to QuickBooks from within your app and authorize access to a QuickBooks Online company file.
