How do I manage consignment sales to my customers? I consign my goods to my customer with a delivery note. Month-end, I will invoice the goods sold by customer

I am the supplier to my customer.  The customer pay me for what they sold.

In the solution provided for consignment sales, I get consignment goods from my supplier and pay them for what I have sold.

This is similar but the roles are reversed.


Hi gary.quek,

You can generate a report that shows consignment sales and how much you've paid to consignors. To do that, let's turn on the class tracking feature to monitor your income and expenses. Let me show you how.

  1. Click the Gear icon.
  2. Select Account and Settings.
  3. Click Advanced on the left menu.
  4. In the Categories section, click the pencil (edit) Icon to open the fields for editing.
  5. Click the Track classes checkbox.
  6. Click Save.
  7. Click Done.

Once done, you can start entering consignors as suppliers. then set them up consignors by class. Please check this article for the detailed steps: How to Record Consignment Sales.

I've also included some articles in case you want to match bank transactions: Banking Articles.

Keep me posted if you have any other concerns. 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.
