Recur360: Setting up Recur360 to sync with QuickBooks Desktop via the QuickBooks Web Connector

Recur360 syncs with QuickBooks Desktop via the QuickBooks Web Connector (QBWC). 

Minimum Operating Requirements:

  • You must be running QuickBooks Desktop for Windows Versions 2016 – 2021 to be on a supported version of the Web Connector. 
  • Your Server or PCs where you will run the QBWC must be on Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server 2016 or Windows 10.
  • If your local environment doesn’t meet the above requirements, Recur360 can host QuickBooks Desktop for you in our Data Center on our Hosted Remote Desktop Servers.

Installation Prerequisites:

  • The QBWC can only be configured to sync with Recur360 under one user’s Windows login / profile. 
  • This means that before you configure the QBWC you must decide on which Server Profile or PC Profile you will set it up under and then that person will be responsible for making sure the QBWC is launched and running each day in order for the sync to occur
