QB Issue Resolution:

While we can’t set up vendor discounts for early bill payments, you have the option to create a discount item. Then, add it as a line item (negative amount) in the original bill so it’ll adjust the amount. Here’s how:


  1. Click the Gear icon in the upper-right hand corner.
  2. Click Products and Services.
  3. At the top right, select New.
  4. Select Non-inventory or Service type, then fill in the fields.
  5. In the Name field, enter Discount.
  6. In the Sales price/rate field, enter the discount amount as a negative.
  7. From the Income account drop-down, select the appropriate account.
  8. Make sure the Is Taxable is not checked.
  9. Click on Save and close.

You can also create a vendor credit and apply it on the bill payment. Please see this article for more details: Manage Vendor Credits.
