GoDaddy Bookkeeping software from GoDaddy (best known as a web domain registrar) is designed for users who are selling online and want a secure and fast way to manage their books — no accounting experience needed.
The product is primarily used by small businesses selling on Amazon, eBay, Etsy, and GoDaddy’s online store platform. The software eliminates tedious data entry tasks and automates sales and expenses. It imports business accounts from e-commerce sites and generates up-to-date income and expense reports, profit and loss statements, and other documents.

What else does GoDaddy offer?
GoDaddy also offers do-it-yourself website and e-commerce store builders for small businesses at various price points. These have been especially popular during the pandemic as businesses have pivoted online, the company says.
Among available features are marketplaces, which enable sellers to list products on sites including Amazon, eBay, Etsy, Jet.com and Walmart. Inventory is synced across all channels, which prevents overselling. Google Shopping integration, another available feature, connects a product inventory with Google’s free Google Shopping listings, making products more visible and accessible.
