Can I set up Purchase order within QuickBooks to several of my vendors
Hi there, jim91.
I can see here that you tag as QuickBooks Self-Employed. Currently, the ability to set up a Purchase order to several vendors is only available in QuickBooks Online Plus.
If you're already using the version stated above, please follow the steps below on how to create P.O to your vendors. To do this, you'll need to turn on the P.O feature first from Account and Settings.
Click the Gear icon at the upper right corner.
Choose Account and Settings and go to the Expenses tab.
Click the pencil icon in the Purchase orders section.
Checkmark the Use purchase orders box.
Hit Save. Then click the Done button.
Once done, you can now start creating P.O. follow these steps:
Click the New button. Then choose Purchase order.
Select the vendor from the Vendor's drop-down arrow.
If you are shipping a product directly to a customer, select the Ship-To drop-down menu and choose the customer.
From the Category details and/or Item details section, enter the purchases. Please note that only the products or services marked "I purchase this product/service from a vendor" will appear in the Item details section.
