How can i receive stock in quick books online?

Hi @wescey,


QuickBooks Online (QBO) allows you to track stock that's on hand and get alerts when you need to restock. Be advised, this feature is available for the Plus version. 


You can start by sending a purchase order to your supplier to let them know what you need. 


To create this transaction, follow these steps:


  1. Highlight the Sales tab.
  2. Click Products and Services.
  3. On the filter at the top of the page, select either Low Stock or Out of stock
    • If you need to reorder both from the same supplier, don't use a filter. 
  4. Fill up the purchase order form, or add other items you need. 
  5. Tap Save and send

At this point, you can convert the purchase order into a bill or a cheque/expense transaction. You convert it into a bill if you pay your supplier at a later date. While you convert it into a cheque/expense when you pay for it immediately. 


Additional details along with related links on this topic can be found in this article: Add stock products in QuickBooks Online. At the bottom of the page, you can find a link to an article that provides you the steps on how you can convert a non-stock item to stock. 


If you have any other questions, post them in the comments below. I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
