QuickBooks: How to Enable Purchase Orders

  • Updated


The DistributorCentral QuickBooks Export/Import process requires that you have an Accounts Receivable, Sales, and Sales Tax Payable to DC account setup within QuickBooks. If you are exporting Purchase Orders to Suppliers, you must have Purchase Orders enabled within QuickBooks as well.

Please note:
DistributorCentral uses default account names that will likely match your account names in QuickBooks, however these account names could've changed to meet your accountant's needs. If you encounter an error when importing DC files into QuickBooks, please check that you are using the correct account names found in your QuickBooks account

Follow these steps to enable Purchase Orders in your QuickBooks account:

  1. In QuickBooks, click Edit in the top menuquickbooks-1.png

  6. Click OK to the right

Thats it! You've enabled Purchase Orders in QuickBooks.
