We’re stepping up to help businesses impacted.
On June 9th, Intuit announced that TradeGecko is shutting down. Going forward, QuickBooks Commerce will only be available as part of QuickBooks Online and only for customers in the United States. Every TradeGecko customer will be impacted, and service of any kind outside the US will stop announced here).
With the economy picking up and the holiday shopping season fast approaching, we’ve decided to help as many affected businesses and their partners as we can. We’ve put together a special offer for anyone currently using TradeGecko.
- Free conversion for TradeGecko to DEAR — up to $4,000 of professional services
- 50% off for your first three months
- Offer valid until the 30th of August 2021
We’re confident we can help you transition smoothly from TradeGecko to DEAR, based on our experience and feedback from customers who have made the switch.
“We migrated from Tradegecko to Dear Systems a few months ago, and have not looked back. We actually even got to meet a Dear Systems expert in person, who was very friendly and knew exactly what the best solution was.” – Mr Simms Wanchai, Mr Simms Olde Sweet Shoppe
On average, the time needed to be up and running with DEAR ranges from 3 weeks for standard implementations and up to 6 to 8 weeks for complex implementations.
“Most of the time, including training, you’re talking about at most three weeks, usually done in two weeks.” – Adrian Lai, Cornerstone Management Group
The best place to start is to talk with our inventory, warehousing, and manufacturing experts. They will help you map out a migration plan at no expense to you, including:
- Evaluating your business requirements
- Answering questions about converting from TradeGecko
- Explaining how to easily establish your accounting configuration and sync
- Discussing the best ways to prepare your team for navigating the change with minimal disruption
- Helping with anything else you’re concerned about TradeGecko’s shutdown
What does this mean for you and your business?
If your business is outside the US, you won’t be able to use TradeGecko at all. After the shutdown, the only way you can use the TradeGecko is if you’re a US business and if you use QuickBooks Commerce as part of QuickBooks Online. If your business is anywhere other than the United States, you won’t be able to use TradeGecko or QuickBooks Commerce, and you’ll need to find an alternative.
We want to help your business avoid this disruption. Many brands run their entire operations out of TradeGecko via its marketplace integrations and automations. Affected businesses will have to find an alternative to continue operating, and because migrating your business operations requires careful planning and execution, it’s wise to do this as soon as possible. Leaving it too long is a serious risk to business continuity.
