Troubleshooting Sending Invoice Error

Check that the characters are all valid. The accepted characters are as follows:

Duplicated Customer in Quickbooks

Quickbooks matches the Blastramp bill to company name and address. If the Quickbooks customer display name is changed and not changed in blast ramp, the system will create a new customer.
Similarly, if the SKUs do not match Quickbooks' version exactly (case sensitive and watch out for leading and trailing spaces), there will be another copy created in Quickbooks.

If none of the tips above work, please contact with the order number and for which portal.
Sending Invoices to Quickbooks Online
Once you have successfully integrated your QuickBooks online with Blast Ramp, now you can send your invoices over.
Navigation: Advanced > Administration > Quickbooks Online Integration (New) > Send Invoices

1. The following information will display so you can select your parameters to display your invoices.
• Start Date: Select the first date you invoiced that you want to import
• End Date: Select the last date you invoiced that you want to import
• Show Exported Orders: You have an option YES or NO.
• Seasons: You have the option to select a specific season or All.
• Terms: You have the option to select a specific terms or All

2. Click "Filter Orders".
3. A list off all your invoices will display below by Order ID / Customer / Order Terms / Season / Already Exported / Ship Date. Select the order by clicking the check box beside each order > click Send Orders.

5. Now you will see the invoices in your QuickBooks Online under Open Invoice.
Expecting High Volume of Orders?
Navigation: Advanced > Administration > Integration > Shopify configuration > Edit

1. Please turn off inventory sync between Blastramp and Shopify. This will allow Shopify to track inventory without Blastramp pushing live inventory numbers forward before all orders have been imported. Uncheck BOTH "Enable Inventory Sync" and "Use Full Inventory Sync".
2. We HIGHLY recommend using inventory mode "Current In Stock". This means as soon as orders are imported the inventory numbers will be adjusted. "Available to Allocate" doesn't adjust until orders are released to DC. Especially if you use the auto-release feature, the auto-release only runs every couple hours.
3. Double check the correct seasons are selected to sync. Under the Shopify settings in Blastramp, there is a list of all linelists/seasons in Blastramp. You can select multiple or all by using SHIFT + CLICK or COMMAND + CLICK.

Things to Consider:

Orders from Shopify are imported into Blastramp every hour.
Inventory sync takes place every 30 mins.
When there are many orders coming in, there will be a lag between the order and inventory sync causing the two systems to be out of sync. Turning off the inventory sync combats this.
ie. there are 50 items ordered not imported into Blastramp yet. In Blastramp, there are 100 units in stock, but in reality only 50 left. When the inventory sync is scheduled, Blast Ramp will overwrite Shopify's inventory, as it is supposed to. Now Shopify is back to 100 units instead of 50 units.

Alhough we have systems in place to handle the volume of orders, we can't control the speed in which Shopify will send orders to Blastramp. There is a limit of integration calls we can make and Shopify can send.

Web Service
To connect your external system with blast ramp, we have a wide variety of web services.

For further details, please refer to the following Developer Documentation.
Importing Invoices into Xero
When an order is shipped, it will be queued to be uploaded into Xero automatically. Blastramp sends data to Xero every 20 minutes. Once the invoice is uploaded into Xero, the invoice will be found in Draft.

Tax Setup

Blastramp does not send the tax rate to Xero. The tax percentage on the invoice in Xero will be based on the tax rate on the Sales account.
For example: All Sales is mapped to account Code 200. Account 200 is set at tax rate "Tax on Sales 12%"
When the invoice is sent from Blastramp to Xero, Blastramp maps the Sales to account 200. Xero will then assigns the "Tax on Sales 12%" onto each product line. 

Changes in Accounts

To make adjustments to the way the Accounts are mapped from Blastramp, go to: Advanced > Xero Items.

NOTE: If the Accounts Dropdown shows "Error", you will need to reset Authentication; go to: Advanced > Portal Setting : Xero Settings.
