What happens if I bill customers in multiple currencies?

If you trade in multiple currencies or have multiple currencies set up in Billsby, we recommend turning on the multicurrency feature in your QuickBooks Online account. Without this feature, when we send an invoice in another currency to your QuickBooks Online account it’ll convert it into your home currency on a 1-to-1 basis, so $250 becomes £250.

It is also important that your home currency in QuickBooks Online matches your base currency in Billsby. If your QuickBooks home currency differs from your Billsby base currency - so for example, you invoice in Billsby in dollars, but in QuickBooks your home currency is set to pounds, and you don't have multi-currency, it'll convert the invoice on a 1-to-1 basis, so $250 becomes £250.

Which sheet are my invoices added to in QuickBooks?

When integrating your Billsby account with QuickBooks Online, we use 'OtherCurrentAssets' transaction accounts.
This means that invoices synced from Billsby are added to the balance sheet, rather than the profit/loss sheet.
