Hi there, @blueberi69

 

Thanks for visiting the Community. The Purchase Order feature in QuickBooks Online is only available in the Plus and Advanced version. 

 

It could be that you're using the Simple Start and Essentials version of QuickBooks. You may want to upgrade your online subscription to use this feature. Here's how: 

 

  1. Click the Settings menu and select Account and Settings.
  2. Go to the Billing & Subscription tab.
  3. In the QuickBooks Online section, click Upgrade.
  4. Choose the plan you want either Plus or Advanced, then click Upgrade.
  5. Confirm your payment information, then click Save.

 

Once your plan is upgraded, you can now see the expense bar in the settings to let you turn on the Purchase Order feature. 

 

For future reference, read through this help article: Create purchase orders in QuickBooks Online. It has a step-by-step guide about turning on and creating the purchase order in QBO. 

 

Let me know if you have additional questions. We're always here to guide you. Stay safe.
