Which are the stock tracking capability in QuickBooks Online?

Can I record an initial quantity and date?Purchases and sales of the item update the stock quantities automatically?


Hello, viola.

Let me share an idea on the stock tracking capabilities in QuickBooks Online. 

QuickBooks Online (QBO) Plus can track stock quantity, sales revenue, and cost of goods sold. 

When you create a stock, you have the option to enter the initial quantity on hand as of a specific date. Also, when a stock is sold, QuickBooks will automatically update the quantity and record the sales and the cost of goods. 

This article explains more information about stock tracking capabilities in QBO: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1388946.

You can leave a reply if you have more questions with the features in QBO. Thanks!

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
