Can You create 2 separate accounts for a vendor with the same name? Example: Verizon

Greetings, @VivanJohn131,


Thanks for visiting the Community today. I can share some insights on how to add your vendor accounts.


At the moment, using the same description or name on multiple vendor profiles or A/P accounts is currently not an option in QuickBooks Online. Once you assign the same description, the system will automatically assume you're merging the two accounts or profiles.


The best thing to do is to add some identifiers on the other account like special characters or numbers. This way, QuickBooks will allow you to set up the accounts separately.


This is, however, a great idea we can add in QuickBooks Online so I'd recommend sending your product preference to our engineers. Your suggestion helps them understand where we can improve and what features should be added so we can better serve you.


You can follow the steps below for them to account your request:

  1. Go to the Gear icon.
  2. Choose Feedback from the drop-down.
  3. Enter your Comments, Suggestions or Feedbacks.
  4. Choose Next.
  5. Select a category.
  6. Click Send message.

That should do it, @VivanJohn131. I already sent this suggestion on my end to reinforce your request.


Please get back to the Community if you have anymore questions about QuickBooks. I'm here to help you whenever you need further assistance. Have a great day!
