Learn how wholesale billing works so you can pass discounts on to your clients.
How wholesale billing works
When you move a client’s company to wholesale billing, 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 billing program allows you to pass along pricing discounts to your clients.
With a wholesale billing 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 itemised 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 Billing cost is dependent on the current list price of the subscription, and is subject to change. Clients already under Wholesale Billing are not eligible for a free 30-day trial of QuickBooks Payroll.
