Past Due on invoice that are one day old setting n account is 30 days.

I do not and cannot use Quick books on line, I have set up every customer for 30 days in their account /Payment Settings /Payment Terms /30 days and the day after I send the invoice if I send it again it says Past Due on the invoice. That is what am trying to change with no luck.

I appreciate you for doing the steps suggested by my colleague @katherinejoyceO.


Since you're still having this issue, you can attempt deleting the invoice and recreate it.

Here's how to delete an invoice:


  1. Go to the Customers menu.
  2. Select Customer Center.
  3. Choose the invoice created with 30 days term.
  4. Open the invoice then click the Delete (X) icon on the upper part of the invoice.
  5. Click OK.

Then apply the 30 days term again.


When you're ready to enter payments for your invoice, you can check this article for your guide: Record an Invoice Payment.
