It's nice to see you posting your concern in the QuickBooks Community, @zoe-tyrus-tv. I've got some information you need to handle your customer’s credit in QuickBooks Online.
If you want to offset a customer’s credit, then I suggest creating a check that affects the accounts receivable.
Once done, you'll have to link the check to the customer's credit so the customer's balance shows zero. Please follow the steps below.
I'd appreciate any additional details you can provide regarding your concern. This way, I can share accurate information with you.
Also, you can view this article to view further information on how you can apply the available credit to another entry so this will show as zero: Handle a customer credit or overpayment in QuickBooks Online.
For future reference, I'll share with you this link if in case you’ll want to record a customer refund if a customer overpaid you on accident.
Keep me posted if you still have questions or concerns with your customer’s credit in QBO. I'll be around for you. Have great day!
This issue should not have a work-around so convoluted. As it clearly states in the screencaps attached, the payment was disputed and, ultimately, rejected.
Yet it was marked in Quickbooks as having been deposited, despite never hitting our bank.
I cannot refund or delete the payment that, as I have stated, already failed and was marked as failed in the accounts.
I will attempt the above workaround, but ultimately deleting the transaction or simply not recording the failed deposit in the first place would be expedient.
