QB Issue Resolution:

You can set up the shipping as a service or non-inventory item, then use an expense account, Haydenbishop.


I’ll show you how:

  1. Click Lists, then go to Item List.
  2. Click Item, then select New.
  3. Click the TYPE drop-down arrow, then select Service or Non-inventory Part.
  4. Enter a desired name, then leave the Price field blank.
  5. Click the Account drop-down arrow, then choose an Expense account.
  6. Click OK.

Once you create a purchase order, you can add the shipping, then enter the amount.


I’ve attached a screenshot as your guide.



As always, I suggest conferring to your accountant on what expense account to use.


For future reference, I’ve got this article on how to add, edit, and delete items.
