How should this work:
A) We distribute the shipping/other fees across the items evenly when it goes to quickbooks
B) You have a line item for shipping, and the expense goes there instead

+1 for option B although we would call it Freight. Shipping is something you charge a customer for when mailing them something. Freight is what you pay your vendor to ship you an item. It would be great if we could add a Freight non-inventoried item and have that map to the Freight COGS account in our accounting software (we use QB Online). This will allow us to more easily report our overall Freight cost for the year.
I like it – I adjusted the wording slightly, hope that is okRyan commented
We vote for this. Here is a common scenario for us. We place an order for 5 of the same RAM chips from Amazon. Those 5 RAM chips will all arrive the same day in different boxes and we will have 5 different transactions in my bank account for this order. It's just the way Amazon rolls with their billing sometimes. It would be nice when we receive those individual items in RS to have that received items cost sent over as a line item to QB rather than the entire order amount. Otherwise I'm going to find myself playing around with these transactions QB online more to get it to match what my bank account shows for reconciling purposes. Hope that is clear.
