Everything you need to know about wholesale billing

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

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

For the latest info, visit the wholesale billing website.

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 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 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.

Advantages of wholesale billing

  • Long-term discounts - Wholesale billing 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.Note: The wholesale billing depends on the current list price of the subscription, and is subject to change.
  • Flexibility - Wholesale billing 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.
