Offset vendor credit against vendor invoice

Good day, lsefcik.


You can use the vendor credit as payment to your vendor's open bill. 


To apply the existing credit to an open vendor transaction, use the Pay Bill feature. Here’s how:

  1. In the left menu, click the + New button.
  2. Select Pay Bills.
  3. Choose the vendor from the list.
  4. Once selected, the vendor's existing credit populates on the Credit Applied column.
  5. Hit Save and close to apply the credit to the vendor open balance.

You may also follow below another step to use the vendor credit as payment for an open bill:

  1. Locate and open the bill you want to pay.
  2. Click the Make as paid button.
  3. In the Bill Payment window, the bill is marked in the Outstanding Transactions section.
  4. Go to the Credits section and mark the vendor credit.
  5. Hit Save and close.

Thank you for this very simple solution.  I was on with chat help for over 15 min and all I got as a takeaway was that they were trying to sell me a training class!  From now on if I have a simple question I will just post it here.  Also, this should be a simple solution that comes in when you type in "offset vendor invoice against vendor credit", but you should see what came up that didn't come close to addressing my question.


I appreciate your quick and accurate response!
