Why is Google Sheets good for business?

Google Sheets is great for businesses that sell online with Stripe because it's an affordable, lightweight CRM that can store customer data, manage payment history and analyze sales trends. Plus it also offers many practical features like printing shipping labels and creating event attendee lists. 

  • Automatically track payments with details like customer names, emails, payment amounts, dates and much more 
  • Generate shipping labels for orders, manage stock inventory, collect questionnaire feedback, create attendee lists for events or track RSVPs, plus many other practical uses 
  • Create charts and tables that can help you understand sales trends and make smarter decisions
  • Collaborate with your team members in real time by sharing the spreadsheets and controlling who can access and edit them - this works perfectly with Checkout Page's team member collaboration

What’s more, Google Sheets is free for anyone with a Google account, which means you don't have to worry about additional software costs or train your team on unfamiliar and expensive software. 

Google Sheets can handle large amounts of data and scales as your business grows, making it perfect for managing a huge payment history.

You can access Google Sheets easily on any device, allowing you to check your sales on the go.

Google Sheets automatically saves versions of your spreadsheet, so you won't lose your sales history if you accidentally delete something. You can easily revert back to a previous version.

Future updates to the integration

Here are some potential future updates we are considering.

Currently, the integration sends new data to your Google Sheets. In the future, we are exploring the possibility of allowing you to export existing customer and payment data from Checkout Page into your Google Sheet. 

We understand that not all data may be relevant to your Google Sheet. That's why we would like to introduce the ability to choose which specific data you want to send and what data you prefer not to send from Checkout Page to your Google Sheet. 

As of now, each checkout page is connected to its own Google Sheet. In the future, we could make it so you can select which Google Sheet you want to connect to your checkout page.

As your business grows and you have multiple checkouts, we understand the need to have a centralized view of all your customer and payment data. We are exploring the option of allowing you to send all customer and payment data across all your checkouts to a single Google Sheet. 

We genuinely want to hear from you. If you have any ideas or specific features that you believe would greatly benefit your business, please don't hesitate to reach out. We are committed to improving the integration based on your needs and making Google Sheets with Checkout Page even more powerful and user-friendly.
