Vendor types let you categorize your vendors in ways that are
meaningful to your business. For example, you could set up your
vendor types so that they indicate a vendor's industry or geographic location. You can also place a vendor type as a subtype of another vendor type. For example, you might create the type Painters with the subtypes Exterior and Interior.
You can create reports and do special mailings that are based on
your vendor types. For example, if you own a construction company
and use subcontractors, you might want to use the ones closest to
each job. You could then create a QuickBooks report that shows the
subcontractors in each geographic area.
