How to invite an account owner to connect an app to an entity in Bookkeep

Bookkeep is dedicated to simplifying the process for administrators and owners to link ecommerce and POS applications for seamless synchronization of financial data with your accounting platform. To facilitate this, Bookkeep provides a "Client Connect" landing page for each entity, making it easier to share a link with business owners or admins to establish connections with their respective apps. This streamlined approach ensures a smooth integration process and efficient management of financial information within your accounting system. To learn more about locating and sharing this link for your entity, read on below.
