Hi there, CHTgrammy2.
Thanks for joining the Community. I'm here to help and guide you with recording the cash advance payment in QuickBooks Desktop.
You can record the cash advance by entering the $2000 amount and debiting your expense account with the $48.30 PayPal fee to reflect the total deposit of $1951.70.
Let me show you how:
I've attached some screenshots below to help you with the process.
You can also check out this article for your reference: Deposit customer payments.
This should help you record the cash advance. Please let me know if you have further questions. I'm always glad to answer them. Have a nice day.
