Business and financial management solutions company Intuit has teamed up with Australian-founded e-commerce company Bigcommerce, and Shopify, to make accounting easier for small businesses selling online.

The direct integration of Intuit’s QuickBooks Online will allow Bigcommerce merchants to automatically update and transfer invoices, expenses and other financial data.

“Delivering seamless integrations between QuickBooks Online and Bigcommerce and Shopify is all about removing a major pain point for businesses by automatically reconciling sales data,” said Avi Golan, vice president and general manager of Intuit Developer Group.

“We want to empower business owners to spend less time balancing the books and more time focused on what they love about running their business.”

Bigcommerce retailers in the US will be the first to integrate QuickBooks Online and organise financial data from their store. Followed by merchants in Canada, the UK and Australia in the coming months.
