Add services to your pricebookLast updated on 09/23/2022
Pricebook service items are used to sell your services on estimates and invoices. You can add images, videos, recommendations, and sold hours, and attach material and equipment items to streamline technician workflows and pricing. You can also map service items to general ledger (GL) accounts and include commission details to ensure accurate accounting and payroll reports.
Things to know
To add services in bulk, add items with the Pricebook Excel template. This is the best option if you are importing your pricebook for the first time or if you need to make mass changes to your pricebook.
The GL Account field for pricebook items changes based on your activated accounting feature—General Ledger Account (for QuickBooks Online), Income Account (for QuickBooks Desktop), or Intacct Item GL Group (for Intacct Integration).
Run the Price Setup Wizard to set prices based on billing rates, markups, and surcharges for maximum profitability.
Enter service details only for the fields that are relevant to your workflows.
