Sync for QuickBooks Migration Guide

This guide has been initially drafted for Pilot merchants / early adopters and may change at a moment's notice!

Note: as of November 2018, the following only applies to QuickBooks Online users at first. Apologies for any inconvenience as we work on QuickBooks Desktop support.
