How do you edit the Vendor/Payee that you added?

Hello tattoo34pdx,

 

You can edit the vendor's information through their profile. Let me show you how:

  1. Click Expenses on the left menu and go to the Vendors tab.
  2. Choose a vendor and click the Edit button.
  3. Edit the details in the Vendor Information window.
  4. Click Save.

You can also check out this article for additional information: Vendors Overview.

 

Let me know if you need anything else.

Interesting but the desktop version of Quickbooks Online either doesn't have an edit button or I'm almost blind.

Thanks for joining this conversation, BillyLee.

 

You should be able to see the edit option in the vendors' profile in QuickBooks Online (QBO) desktop app by following the steps provided by my colleague above.

 

To isolate this, let's try to reset the app data as an initial troubleshooting step. Here's how:

 

  1. Go to the Help menu at the top navigation bar to get to the Rest App Data1.PNG
  2. Allow a moment for the process to complete, and then close the app.
  3. Be sure to right-click the app and Run as Administrator when re-opening.

 

Once done, go back to the vendor's profile to double-check.

 

If the issue persists, you may want to uninstall and reinstall the QBO desktop application. Please refer to this article for the detailed steps on how: QuickBooks App for Windows and Mac: General support.

 

I'm also adding these articles for future reference:

 

 

Let me know if you encounter any other issues, and I'll get back to you as soon as possible. Have a great weekend.

How do you edit a Vendor Profile (including the vendor name) in Premier DESKTOP version, especially if this had been previously paid through QB payments?  Some of us do not have the on-line version.  

Everytime I go to change the vendor QB says sorry you can't edit this due to it being paid in the past via QB payments.  I can't merge them into one file because I don't want to keep the same name.  

Any help would be appreciated, as I am extremely frustrated at this time.

Thank you for reaching out to the Community. Helping you is our priority, @watch516.

 

We can no longer change the Vendor Profile, not unless if you delete the payments connected to QB Payment. However, we don't recommend it as this is historical transaction. 

 

I recommend reaching out to our Customer Support via messaging as they have the tools to pull up your account in a secure environment. 

 

Here's how: 

 

  1. Log in to QuickBooks.
  2. Go to the Help menu and select QuickBooks Help.
  3. Click Contact Us

 

If you have any more questions, don't hesitate to reach back out. Have a great rest of your day!
