Receipt #"X" created on "Date" has an unbalanced payment...is skipping from processing

After a financial exchange with QuickBooks, the activity log contains the message:

Receipt # "xxx" created on "date" has an unbalanced payment. Receipt "xxx" is skipped from processing.
Why this is happening
  • Using line item discounts that create decimal quantities on sales receipts
  • Having decimal quantities on line items in conjunction with Global Discounts on sales receipts
  • A remote store is selling items that don't have a quantity, creating negative quantity amounts
How to fix it
