Can you create delayed charges in mobile app.........If so, what are steps.....I cannot find any path to creating it under either invoicing or customer.......Please help.

I am using Android version so perhaps there is an update or something that may offer this feature.


Hi there, jackayers,

Right now, the mobile app won’t allow you to create delayed charges. However, you can use this feature when you're logged in to your QBO account via a web browser.

Follow the steps to create a delayed charge:

  1. Click the Plus icon at the top.
  2. Select Delayed Charge.
  3. Select a customer from the Customer drop-down menu.
  4. Enter the date of product/service delivery in the Delayed Charge Date field.
  5. Enter the details of the product or service delivered, including DescriptionQty and Amount.
  6. Click Save and close.

Once done, you can create an invoice and add the delayed charge created above.

Here's how:

  1. Click the Plus icon at the top.
  2. Select Invoice under Customers.
  3. Select the customer mentioned above.
  4. The delayed charge created above will automatically pop-up on the right side of the page.
  5. Click Add to attach the transaction.
  6. Click Save and close after verifying the entry.

Please see the attached screenshots for your guidance.

I suggest sending a request to our product engineers on how you'd like this feature to be available on the QuickBooks Online mobile app.

Here's how:

  1. Go to the Gear icon at the top then choose Feedback.
  2. Enter your comments or product suggestions then click Next.
  3. You'll be provided a list of suggested Help articles related to your comment. You can read through them or select Skip and send message.
  4. From the drop-down, choose the appropriate category then click Send message.

That'll do it. By following the steps above, you'll be able to create a delayed charge.

Feel free to leave a comment below if there's anything else I can help you with creating a transactions in QBO. I'd be happy to help.

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.
