Hi all,

I am trying to find for my client the equivalent packages to:
MYOB Acounting Plus + DataLink Oasis for Windows..

These two packages allow you to connect your online store directly into the local accounting package being used on the desktop. The accting package doesn't have to be MYOB, just as long as there is some sort of interface for online stores! any help is much appreciated as I can't seem to find ANYTHING! :confused:

Have you tried Lightspeed 2?

Hi Lurka - no I hadn't seen that - it seems like a great product but it is more so a POS system rather than an accounting package. From what I can gather there doesnt seem to be any Accounting software for OSX that has a bridge for online store integration! .. MYOB doesn't even include plugins or addons like the windows counterpart! :/ very frustrating

Indeed, with lightspeed, you will still need to have a separate accounting package like MYOB

G'Day!

What functionality are you needing with the online store connection? Does it copy the transaction details into your local file or is it just an easy way to run this in a window in the app instead of changing to Safari?

Basically all transaction data from the online store needs to be available in the accounting package. So far I have had no luck at all.. Its unfortunate that so many options are available for Windows Users but none for MAC! :/

Most personal finance apps (such as the one I wrote) allow importing of transactions from online banking sites (usually in QIF or OFX formats). However, I am not sure how this differs from what you describe.

Anyway to see all the personal finance apps for Macs you should try VersionTracker (http://www.versiontracker.com/macosx/business/finance). Here are a couple of apps I found that say they do online stuff:
