Mark an invoice as paid

To indicate to QuickBooks that you have received full payment against an invoice, you must record the payment in the Receive Payments window.

To do this task

  1. Go to the Customers menu and click Receive Payments. Shortcut

Be sure to apply payment to the invoice for which it was intended. If you receive payment from a customer that is for several jobs, apply payment to each job separately by selecting each one in the Receive Payments and applying the correct payment.

Once an invoice has been paid, it is marked with a PAID stamp when you view the invoice onscreen and when you print it.

Note: If the PAID stamp doesn't show on your printed paid invoice, it's possible that the Print Status Stamp option has been cleared in the Customize Invoice window.

You can print a status stamp on invoices, credit memos, sales receipts, and purchase orders. By customizing the template you use for these forms, you can decide whether "Paid," "Pending," or "Received" appears on your printed forms.

To do this task

  1. Open the Basic Customization window.
