QuickBooks Setup Canada – STEP 2 – Creating a CashSales Customer

All transactions that are processed at the Point of Sale that have no customer attached to them will post as one summarized Sales Receipt inside of QuickBooks.  Even if you are planning to track customers on every transaction at the Point of Sale , this customer must be created in QuickBooks for AccuPOS to integrate properly.  To set up this customer:

  1. Go to Customers   Customer Center.

  3. Enter “CashSales” as the customer name.  The name must be exactly CashSales and is case sensitive.
