When changing pricing in POS, why would SOME of the item price in Quickbooks not update as well?

After integrating QuickBooks and QuickBooks POS and exporting Items to QuickBooks, things seemed as though they were correct. When changing Item Pricing in POS, we noticed that sometimes the price change would reflect immediately and sometimes the price change wouldn't reflect AT ALL in QuickBooks. We had this problem WITH THE EXACT SAME ITEM! 

I would change Item# (lets call it A) to a new price in POS to test the integration and it would reflect in Quickbooks. Then I would change the exact same Item# A price back to its original price in POS and Quickbooks price didn't change.  I went over multiple items several times to try and see if any trends developed but it Quickbooks seemed to respond to the changes in POS whenever it wanted to. Help?


Hi Jeffspoolservice, 

I'm here to help and ensure that item price is updating in QuickBooks. 

If the item pricing was done through the Company Preferences, the changes will only apply to the new items. You can go to Price Manager to edit your existing item price.

Here's how: 

  1. Go to Reports.
  2. Select Items.
  3. Choose Item List.
  4. Double-click on any item.
  5. Select the View List button.
  6. Select the little arrow to the right of Edit Item.
  7. Choose Turn List Edit On.
Also, when printing inventory tags in QuickBooks Desktop POS, the Item Description field will not print the entire description. Here's an article for other alternatives: Item Description Field on Inventory Tags Does Not Generate A Second Line.

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.
