dotloop, a leading online transaction and productivity optimization platform in real estate, is now connected to, and available for syncs and automation on API Nation’s platform.

Sync Real Estate Commissions with Dotloop and QuickBooks Online

Commissions, (which you update in your loops) are automatically synced to QuickBooks Online.

How does it work?

The process is pretty simple. API Nation can help you send and sync commissions from your loops to QuickBooks Online.

Here is a short video which shows you the two-types of pre-configured syncs that we created:

Let’s dive into the dotloop/QuickBooks sync details.

Sync Commissions Income

This workflow syncs the gross “Commissions” you may receive into QuickBooks.

  • Monitor and Sync: All transaction types of: Sold, Leased, or Done are monitored by the sync. Once the transaction is completed, your gross commissions are finalized.

  • Updates across the board: Once a deposit is created and synced in QuickBooks, making any further updates to “Closing Date”, “Loop Name” or “Commissions Amount” in dotloop, will sync those changes to QuickBooks.

  • Safeguards: The sync will ignore archived loops and loops with closing dates older than two weeks. Duplicates are not stored in QuickBooks as a result.

Sync Deposits

With this workflow, you can track deposits you store in dotloop.


  • Monitor and Sync: All transaction types and statuses are checked and monitored by the sync.When you enter an amount in the Earnest Money field, it will sync to QuickBooks as a deposit.

  • Accounts: You choose the QuickBooks account where the deposit is entered: Title, Escrow, or Trust, etc.  

  • Complete Deposit: Once a deposit is created, the deposit date will match the “Contract Agreement Date” field and a loop name is copied into the Deposit Description and Memo. This will help you identify the deposit.

  • Safeguards: The sync only monitors your dotloop updates from the time you turn it on and onward. It will ignore archived loops and loops with closing dates older than two weeks. This prevents any duplicates from being stored in QuickBooks.
