Can I create gift cards of different values with quickbooks online?

Hey there, drart.

  1. Click Sales in the left panel and go to the Products and services tab.a
  2. Select New. Choose Non-inventory or Service.
  3. Add a name. If you track SKUs, enter a SKU for the product.
  4. From the Category ▼ drop-down, select the category that best describes your product or service. Learn more about item categories.
  5. Select the I sell this product/service to my customers checkbox. If you don't sell the item, you can leave it unchecked.
  6. In the Sales information section, enter a description. This is what your customers will see on their sales form.
  7. Enter an amount in the Sales price/rate field. Note: If you charge a variable rate for services, you can leave the Sales price/rate data field blank. Add the price when you fill out the invoice or sales receipt.
