Tips (Gratuity) for sales receipts

QuickBooks Online now lets you add tips to sales receipts like you would add sales tax or shipping. Here's how you can enable and use this new feature.

Turn on Tips in Settings

  1. Select the Gear icon at the top.
  2. Under Your Company, choose Account and Settings.
  3. Select Sales.
  4. Go to the Sales Form Content section then select the pencil icon.
  5. Depending on who receives the tip:
    • Select My Team if you use tips to pay your employees or others. This will create a liabilities account for tips.
    • Select Just me if you only pay tips to yourself. This will create an income account for tips.
  6. Confirm the template switch then select Okay. This will update your template to an optimized layout.
  7. Select Save.
Currently, you can only use the tips feature with the New Airy template. If you'd like to use tips with a different template, you can try an alternate way to record a tip or gratuity in QuickBooks Online. You can also submit a feedback.
