Supported Migration Options:

Method's Migration tool currently supports the following migration options:

  2. QuickBooks Online to QuickBooks Online (QBO-QBO): For those who want to migrate from one QuickBooks Online account to another, the migration process is simplified due to the same platform.

  3. QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online (QBDT to QBO): Migrating from QuickBooks Desktop to QuickBooks Online involves a platform change, introducing several variables. This migration process is more complex and can take approximately 4-6 weeks to complete. Additionally, consulting work may be required to ensure a successful migration. Please note that not all scenarios may be eligible for migration, and such cases will be assessed by the Method support team.

Migration is a meticulous process that requires time and attention to detail. Method's support team will guide you through a discovery call, where they will evaluate your account and validate the data to be migrated. During this process, the support team will provide an estimate of the time required to complete the migration.
