QuickBooks Pro 2021 inventory items set up

I have purchased QB Pro 2021 ten days ag and was told that it can track inventory. However, when setting up New Item, it offers only Service, Non-Inventory, Other Charges... No inventory items! What can be done? Thank you so much in advance.

Let's enable the inventory feature first from the Preferences page to sort it out. 

 

I'll provide steps on how to resolve your issue to show the Inventory items. Here's how: 

 

  1. Go to the Edit tab and select Preferences
  2. Choose Items & Inventory, then click on Company Preferences
  3. Put a check-mark on the Inventory and purchase orders are active box. 
  4. Press Ok

Once done, start setting up the inventory items you are selling in the Item List window. 

 

Here's how:

  1. From the Lists tab, choose the Item list.
  2. Right-click anywhere and press New or Ctrl+N.
  3. In the Type drop-down arrow, select Inventory Part.
  4. In the Item Name/Number field, enter the name of the item.
  5. Select an Income Account for your sales.
  6. Enter the quantity in the On Hand field.
  7. Complete other fields, as needed, and click OK.
