Hi Joe. We moved the help site a while back. See help.reckon.com

You'll see links there to the qbXML resources.

The intuit sdk links are on this page, noting we are v6.1 however that does include custom fields.

Hi Joe,

Thanks for your post.

You can read more from Intuit's OSR: https://static.developer.intuit.com/qbSDK-current/common/newosr/index.html

Change to qbXML and version 6 and then you can choose the method you're after.

Hi Ifti
Sorry, I'm late.
That's absolutely API document.
Although I can reach there the past from API Portal, but I couldn't reach there now.
I hope Reckon maintains the official documents as one of their own resources...

You will need both our API and the SDK to push and pull data to and from Reckon Accounts Hosted.

Hi Jason
Thank you for your reply.

I understand that both are important for Reckon Accounts Hosted.
However, in my situation, I am using PHP languages even though it is not supported officially by Reckon. So in fact, I can use only the documents.

I am already developing a PHP library like SDK by myself on business. However, I need to implement more it. Honestly, the official document on website is sufficient to me, and the documents in SDK often makes me confusing because it's for QuckBooks originally.

Thanks

No problem. Just to confirm though.. our core code is QuickBooks Desktop, so as long as you select v6 of the SDK in the online tool it should all line up. Note: The US only has sales tax, so if the SDK refers to sales tax, both sales and purchase codes  are covered for AU and NZ.
