Mapping refers to how accounts, various fields, and payment types in QuickBooks Point of Sale are linked to your QuickBooks
accounts. These mappings specify how Point of Sale data is transferred to QuickBooks.
Item accounts specify where Point of Sale transfers item sales (Income), cost
(COGS), and inventory value (Asset) amounts when the various item types items are sold. These are default accounts, assigned to new items as they are added to inventory. Optionally, you can apply changes to all existing items, create sub-accounts by department, or assign accounts on an item-by-item basis on the item record in Point of Sale inventory.
The following table shows the QuickBooks accounts that are mapped to payment related Point of Sale fields.
The following tables shows the mapping between Point of Sale payment fields and QuickBooks Payment Methods and Types. These payment types are required if the Merchant Account Reconciliation feature is used. These mappings cannot be changed in Point of Sale, but if these mappings are changed in QuickBooks by changing the payment type and method associations, the Merchant Account Reconciliation feature does not work.
