import paypal payment from customer and apply to invoice

I have read several answers here saying that when importing from paypal you should make paypal a bank account.  That is working fine, it appears, and payments from customers get added as deposits to my PayPal bank account.

But, then i have an invoice for this customer.  I can "Receive Payments" and manually copy the transaction and invioice id from paypal, and separate out the tax myself.  It would really be nice if the import from paypal could do all this for me.

But when i do it manually, when it comes to choosing an account to deposit to, if i choose PayPal, then there are 2 deposits, duplicates, from this customer to the paypal account.  If i choose Undepositive Funds, then, still there are 2, and if i transfer that money into the PayPal acct, then there are again duplicate deposits.

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.
