Add and Update an Item

Learn to add an item and update it using the FreshBooks API.


In this lesson, we’ll add some items to our FreshBooks account so we can create invoices and payments to the client. We’ll see the following endpoints:

  • Create an item: {base_url}/accounting/account/{ACCOUNT_ID}/items/items
  • Update an item: {base_url}/accounting/account/{ACCOUNT_ID}/items/items/{ITEM_ID}

To perform different operations on items using FreshBooks API, our application needs to have user:billable_items:read and user:billable_items:write permissions.
