QuickBooks users can now import purchase data from Amazon Business

Intuit on Monday announced an integration with Amazon Business that aims to make it easier to import purchase and reconciliation data into QuickBooks. 

Through the integration, all Amazon Business purchases will be automatically imported into QuickBooks and the data refreshed multiple times a day. Purchase details, including item descriptions, costs and fee breakdowns for each transaction will be included automatically.

Also: What is Amazon Business and how does it work?

“By connecting Amazon Business with QuickBooks Online, businesses can gain better insights into where their expenses are coming from and how their business is doing overall,” Intuit said in a press release. “Each item bought through Amazon Business can be categorized separately and matched with bank transactions in QuickBooks.

$60M project will build affordable housing in Central City for New Orleans Medicare users | Business News

A New Orleans-based non-profit housing developer is teaming up with an insurance company for a $60 million project to convert a former Brown’s Dairy lot on Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard in Central City into affordable housing for Medicare users.

The 192-unit housing complex, which is a “health and housing” pilot project for Gulf Coast Housing Partnership and Humana, will go up on the 86,000-square-foot property that covers almost the entire block bordered by Baronne, Erato and Thalia streets and the 1300 block of Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard on the lakeside.

That property was used for years as a parking lot for the adjacent Brown’s Dairy milk processing plant, a 200,000-square-foot site that was closed down in 2016, with a loss of 185 jobs. The larger dairy depot site was put up for sale in June last year for $8.5 million before the parent company, Dallas-based Dean Foods, declared bankruptcy several

Telecom operator Vodafone Idea Ltd (VIL) on Sunday said it has started upgrading its 3G users to 4G in key markets.

Further, the company said it is in the best position to upgrade 2G customers also to 4G, but it will continue with basic voice based services to its 2G subscribers.

“While the company will continue to offer basic voice services to its 2G users, 3G data users will gradually be upgraded to 4G in a phased manner across all markets. VIL has started informing its customers in the markets where re-farming is getting completed,” it said in a statement.

With the highest quantum of spectrum in the country and a large part of it already re-farmed for 4G, VIL is now best placed to upgrade 2G and 3G users to high speed 4G data services, Vodafone Idea managing director and CEO Ravinder Takkar said.

New Survey Shows New Users & Business Travel Will Bolster Private Jet Travel For The Fall

MIAMI, Sept. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Private Jet Card Comparisons has released the results of a new survey that reveals 90% of new and existing private aviation users are expecting to travel by private jet this fall. According to the survey, 51% of respondents are planning to increase their use of private aviation, with 31% reporting their companies are expanding usage of private aviation services. The survey analyzed individuals’ upcoming plans to fly private between September and the festive period, with 36% of respondents identifying as new or returning users and 64% representing existing users who were flying private prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Fundamentally, it looks like a combination of new users to private aviation and steady, continued usage from existing users will offset an overall drop in business travel between now and the Christmas holiday season,” said Doug Gollan, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Private Jet Card

Google redesigned Google Pay app to streamline users’ access to cards

  •  Google Pay’s redesigned app streamlines users’ access to their cards.
  • This could potentially help the mobile payment provider pull in users.

The updated app design shows just a carousel of a user’s payment cards, loyalty cards, and passes on its homepage, with the intent of making it easier to access them, per Android Police.

Google Pay is trying to streamline its app.

The homepage also features a floating “+” button that lets users add new cards and passes. Additionally, the redesign removed a menu bar at the bottom of the app in favor of a “hamburger menu” that gives users access to their activity history, settings, and more, streamlining the app’s interface without removing users’ ability to call up key information.

This appears to be part of a broader effort by Google Pay to encourage usage by trying to give users easier access to their cards. The

Q&A: What Does Banning TikTok and WeChat Mean for Users? | Business News

By MATT O’BRIEN and TALI ARBEL, AP Technology Writer

The U.S. government is cracking down on the Chinese apps TikTok and WeChat, starting by barring them from app stores on Sunday.

President Donald Trump has cited concerns about Chinese government snooping as his administration prepares to follow through on executive orders that could make it increasingly difficult, if not impossible, for Americans to use the apps.

Trump has also floated a potential way out, at least for TikTok, which on Friday he called an “amazing company” that is “very, very popular.”

Here are some questions and answers about the deal.

WHEN DO THE BANS TAKE EFFECT?

The order disallowing TikTok and WeChat from smartphone app stores takes effect Sunday, as do additional restrictions on the use of WeChat.

A broader ban on the use of TikTok will follow on Nov. 12 unless its Chinese parent company ByteDance is able to

Getting Users Is Historically Cheap. Getting Them To Pay Is Historically Hard

Updated September 18 to fix an error comparing iOS and Android monetization

There’s good news and bad news in the mobile games business.

The good news is that acquiring new users for your mobile game is extremely cheap right now, down to a “historical low of $1.47” per user, averaged globally over iOS and Android. The bad news is that getting your new users to actually buy anything in your game is really hard: game publishers’ cost to activate those new users with an in-app purchase is up 24% to $43.88, the highest it’s been since 2018.

The data is from a new mobile gaming apps report from Liftoff based on over 300 million installs, and 6.5 million in-app purchases.

The study also shows that launching your game on Android could be much better
