How should I edit supplier's currency in file

Hi weih,


Welcome to the QuickBooks Online community! I hope the program has helped you have a product week with managing your business finances. It's great to hear that you've got multicurrency set up and have assigned difference currencies to your suppliers.


Changing the currency assigned to a supplier isn't currency possible in QuickBooks Online. If you accidentally assigned the wrong currency or they've switched what currency they're using, it's just simply a matter of recreating the supplier with the correct currency. You can make the original profile inactive if you don't want to see it in your supplier list anymore. Follow these steps.


Create a new supplier in QuickBooks Online

  1. Click Expenses in the left menu.
  2. Choose Suppliers.
  3. Click New supplier.
  4. Choose the currency from the I pay this supplier with drop-down.
  5. Fill out the required fields.
  6. Click Save.

Deactivate a supplier in QuickBooks Online

  1. On the Suppliers screen, click the supplier name.
  2. Choose Edit.
  3. Click Make inactive.
  4. Click Yes on the message that pops up.


  1. On the Suppliers screen, click the dropdown arrow in the Action column.
  2. Click Make inactive.

If the vendor has an outstanding payment owed, you won't be able to make it inactive from the Action drop-down menu. You can still do it from the supplier profile, but the program will give you a warning about the outstanding amount and say that an adjusting entry will be made.
