Packing Slips

We are using Enterprise 19.  We are a manufacturing company and sell to our dealers/customers on terms.  We ship from our warehouse location one day and then invoice the next.  I need a packing slip that my warehouse can pull after they've picked an order that will reflect Item, Quantity Ordered, Quantity Shipped (Picked) and Quantity BackOrdered.  Intuit is telling me that I have to invoice first in order to get a packing slip that reflects this.  Anyone doing this that can assist me?

Re: Packing Slips

It’s great to see today, Lori122562.

I can see this is your first question here in the Community. Let me welcome you to the QuickBooks family.

The information you receive from Intuit is correct. You’ll have to create an invoice first prior to printing a packing slip.

Before proceeding, make sure to set the preferences for choosing a template. To accomplish this task, check out these steps.


  1. At the top menu bar, choose the Edit tab.
  2. Select Preferences.
  3. On the left panel, choose Sales & Customers.
  4. On the Company Preferences tab, go to the Choose template for section.
  5. Select whether to using any of the following:

    *Intuit Packing Slip template

    *Existing template that you've already customized

  6. Click on OK.

Now, let's go ahead and create an invoice. After making one, you can now print the packing slip.


I have a few easy steps on how to perform this in QuickBooks.


  1. On the Invoice page, go to the Main tab in the upper right hand.
  2. Click on the Print drop-down arrow, then select Packing Slip.
  3. In the Print Packing Slip window, click on the Print tab.

These steps should get you pointed in the right direction.

Let me know about your success printing the packing slip, or if you have any other concerns. I'll be right here ready to help.
