Meet the company: JMA
If you’re like me you’ll hate doing your accounts, sadly it’s a job which has to be done but very few people (other than possibly accountants) actually enjoy the tedious work of adding up sales and receipts, calculating their VAT and all the other financial record keeping which is essential for any business.
Luckily companies like JMA Web Technologies exist to make our lives easier, they can automate much of the manual record keeping we’d otherwise have to do.
We decided to ask more and asked Joseph Anderson, Customer Success Director at JMA Web Technologies, to tell us more about their service and how they could make your accounting easier:
What does JMA Web Technologies do?
Founded in 2010, JMA Web Technologies provides system integrations for QuickBooks and Xero. Easily balance your books, track your sales and keep inventory in sync using our products. Using web services, our solutions provide an automatic sync that runs in the background. Our solutions require no spreadsheets or mapping files. All settings are easily configurable on our website. No desktop apps or website plugins are required.
Our cart connectors sync with Amazon and eBay in North America and Europe. Our solutions allow you to change deposit accounts, based on the payment method, making reconciliation much easier. Our products will log successful syncs and provide detailed error messages. Our solutions offer an intuitive set-up wizard that breaks down account, customer, order, product, and sales tax mapping.
For customers with large volumes of orders, our solutions can create a summary order. This transaction will combine all of the line items into a single order. You will see SKUs, quantities, product names, the unit price and tax codes. Because the transaction contains the SKUs, your accounting software can track COGS and income accounts for each product. Depending on your source of orders, our solutions can group orders by their selling channel or payment method. This makes reconciliation a breeze.

Which countries is your solution tailored for?

What would your ideal customer look like?
JMA works with mostly small and medium businesses. We have several accounts using Amazon and eBay because our solution is designed for multi-channel selling. Most clients have annual revenue between $100,000 to 5,000,000.
Why would someone use JMA Web Technologies over competitors?
There are many reasons and here are some of them:
- JMA is a U.S. based company, so you can reach someone during business hours.
- You can sync multiple selling channels under one account.
- Our tool can create a single order to summarize a day of transactions.
- Our solutions can add Amazon or payment processor fees to orders.
- For our QuickBooks integrations, our tool can automatically reconcile payments from Stripe or PayPal. For other systems, upload a spreadsheet of fees and orders. Our tool will make the deposit. If orders are missing, our tool will notify you. Our reconcile tool will save you countless hours finding and matching orders.
- Our tools can sync inventory updates from your Accounting solution to your website.
- Many of our clients enter orders in their Accounting solution, sync them to ShipStation, and send back the tracking details to the orders.
Feel free to contact us with your business requirements and we’ll see if we are a fit.

JMA Web Technologies
Had to laugh at the bit about why would someone choose JMA. US based company with business hours. So if you had a problem during the morning you would not be able to get any assistance till a short time window late in the day UK time.
….but still better than all those companies out there which refuse to publish a phone number and tell you the only way to access support in an emergency is to use their email form and sit and wait for a reply whenever that might be ;-)
Could do with knowing how they compare to say using ebusiness guru’s xero connector app for linnworks
