Immediately upon logging in for the first time, you'll be asked to select a point of sale system to connect to Lightspeed Accounting.
Select Lightspeed Retail from the list. You'll then be asked to enter your Lightspeed Retail credentials.
The permissions Lightspeed Accounting has in your Lightspeed Retail account will be determined by the credentials that are entered at this time to establish the connection. We recommend using the owner's credentials, as it is important to enter the credentials of a Lightspeed Retail user who has unlimited permissions and who will not be leaving the organization. Should the user who authorizes the account be archived in Lightspeed Retail, it will revoke Lightspeed Accounting's access and sever the connection. You will then have to reauthorize the account before you can resume syncing your information.
Once you've entered the credentials of a suitable Lightspeed Retail user, you can authorize Lightspeed Accounting by clicking on Authorize Application.
This establishes the connection between Lightspeed Retail and Lightspeed Accounting. Next, you'll need to connect Lightspeed Accounting to your accounting software.
