How do I record the selling of a domain name?

So, if I bought and then subsequently sold a domain name -- how would I record that on quickbooks? I'm stumped.

How do I record the selling of a domain name?

Thanks for reaching out to the Community, CL1001a. I'm here to lend a hand.


You'll have to create an income account for the domain name and record it as a bank deposit. Here's how:

  1. Go to the Gear icon (⚙) > Chart of Accounts.
  2. Click New. Under Account Type, select Income or Other Income.
  3. Browse and select a Detail Type that most closely matches the new account's purpose.
  4. Enter a Name for the account
  5. Click Save and close.

To record as a bank deposit:


  1. Click + New and select Bank deposit.
  2. Enter the required fields.
  3. Click Save and close.

I've got you these articles for additional reference:
