I don't know if this is considered an "easy" solution but it beats entering everything manually. For quickbooks we advise our customers to use this guide:
If you're looking for a report that has all the transaction information, I recommend downloading the history file. It's the same process as getting the Quickbooks file but you can choose a different file type and it will have all information in a spreadsheet format.

A few things to check -
1. Make sure he is spelling your email address correctly.
