Everything you need to know about the wholesale discount program

SOLVEDby QuickBooksQuickBooks Accountant Online8Updated 4 days ago

Learn how wholesale discount works so you can pass discounts on to your clients.

As a ProAdvisor, you can subscribe to the wholesale discount program. This lets you offer exclusive discounts to clients who are new to QuickBooks Online. They become part of your wholesale discount plan and you get to decide how to charge them for it.

How wholesale discount works

When you move a client’s company to wholesale discount, you have the option to pay the cost of their subscription or have them pay directly on their own. Either way, being part of the wholesale discount program allows you to pass along pricing discounts to your clients.

With a wholesale discount plan, if you pay for your client’s subscription, you can offer discounts off the current list price with the option to cancel at any time. You're billed monthly for clients' subscriptions. Each month, you get an itemized view of all of your wholesale subscriptions for easy tracking.

If your client decides to be billed directly, you can give your clients a pass-along discount on their subscription for a limited time.

Note: The Wholesale discount cost is dependent on the current list price of the subscription, and is subject to change. Clients already under Wholesale discount are not eligible for a free 30-day trial of QuickBooks Payroll.

Advantages of wholesale discount

  • Long-term discounts - Wholesale discount provides long-term discounts to your firm and clients. In the long run, your clients save more than other ProAdvisor discounts you can offer. And it's only available through you.
  • Flexibility - Wholesale discount gives your firm flexibility for what it can offer. You can include the cost of QuickBooks as part of your firm's services and adjust your prices. Or you could simply invoice customers for a specific discounted rate. It's up to your firm.
  • Peace of mind - Your customers don't have to worry about subscriptions or fees since you handle it all for them.
