Here is a list of the features supported by each version. Self Employed is not supported.
Step 1: Setup Employees in QuickBooks Online
Email addresses are used to map the report submitter in Expensify with the relevant employee in QuickBooks Online so all employees must be setup as either Vendors or Employees. The submitter’s email must also be included in the record.
The type of submitter record used will affect the export type available:
You can also enable the "Automatically Create Vendor" option in the connection configuration to automatically create Vendor records upon export for submitters that don't already exist In QuickBooks Online.
If setting up submitters as Employees, you will need to activate QuickBooks Online Payroll to view the Employee Profile tab where employee email addresses needs to be entered.
