When I add a deposit in, it won't let me put it in there as sales in the account. It then credits the money and then debits it also. I can only change it by going to the register and editing it on there.
Thank you for visiting the QuickBooks Community. In QuickBooks, before recording a deposit, you must create the Sales receipt or payment of the customer to Undeposited Funds. This account serves as a holding account before creating a bank deposit.
When you record a deposit, you have to toggle the correct sales account into the deposit form. However, if it's an online payment, you don't need to deposit it. It will automatically flow to your Banking page. You'll just need to match the transaction in sales.
Also, how do you record the deposit (banking, deposit transaction, or within the register), and what happens when they choose a sales account?
Go to the + New button and select Bank Deposit.
Select the box on each transaction that you'd like to include in this bank deposit.
Choose the bank account where you'd like to deposit this under the Account drop-down.
There are two account fields that you need to fill in on a deposit. One is at the top, where you choose your bank account and the other is in the Add funds to this deposit section, where you choose your sales account.
The deposit will debit the bank acc and credit the sales acc.
