My 3rd party software automatically send QB online the invoice for all customers. Some customers are set up on recurring sales receipts that bill out on specific days every other month. How can I reconcile these paid sales receipts with the open invoices that are sent over?

Re: reconciling invoice with a paid sales receipt

Hello there, @lauriberzins.

 

Thank you for joining the Community. I'd be happy to help share some information about reconciling the invoice with a paid sales receipt in QuickBooks Online.

 

There are two options to record sales transactions in QuickBooks, and it depends on when you receive the payment. For a deferred payment, you can use the Invoice and Receive Payment. However, for immediate payment, you need to use Sales Receipt.

 

Since you got your invoice automatically from third-party software, you can use Receive Payment to know that it has been paid. To avoid duplicates, you can delete the sales receipt then you record a payment against the invoice.

 

Here's how to delete the sales receipt: 

  1. Search and open the sales receipt.
  2. Click More, then choose Void or Delete
  3. Click Yes

After that, you can record the payment with the following steps:

  1. At the top right, click the Plus icon.
  2. Select Receive Payment.
  3. Select the name of the customer, date of payment, and the payment method. 
  4. Enter the amount of the payment 
  5. Select the invoice to apply the payment to. 
  6. Click Save.

For additional information, I've included some articles for your reference:

Re: reconciling invoice with a paid sales receipt

This doesn't work if the original sales receipt was a credit card transaction that was processed and deposited to the bank account. Any other suggestions?

Hi @shieldsporter,

 

Deleting payments or sales receipts processed via QuickBooks Payments is currently unavailable. If you wish to have them remove, I highly recommend contacting our Merchant Support team.

 

They have tools that can pull up your account in a secure environment and manage your transactions. They are available from Mondays through Fridays at 6 AM until 6 PM PT, and Saturdays at 6 AM to 3 PM PT.

 

To reach them, visit this link and proceed to QuickBooks Online Payments & Merchant Service Center section to get their most updated contact info: Contact Payments Support.

 

Another option is deleting the invoice and it's payment instead of the sales receipt.

 

To delete payment, follow these steps:

  1. Open the invoice.
  2. Click the payment link below the Payment Status.
  3. Change the date when the payment is applied.
  4. In the Receive Payment window, click the Clear Payment button.
  5. Hit Save and close.

QuickBooks Online doesn't have the ability to delete multiple invoices at once. To remove old invoices:

 

  1. Click the Sales tab in the left navigation bar.
  2. Select Invoices at the top of the page.
  3. Locate an invoice you'd like to remove and choose the black drop-down arrow to the right.
  4. Tap Delete and then Yes.

Please get back to me if you have other questions in mind or need further help with the process. I'll be right here to help you. Have a good day!
