Regarding QBO wholesale billings

I would like to set up my client on the applicable QBO product and then go and show it off to sell them on it.  When I set up a client on the wholesale program, am I billed from day one or is there a 30 free to look period with the wholesale products?

Hello, jbergelin.    You can create a trial file for your client and then have it on your Wholesale/Consolidated Billing Profile but it would be a two-step process.  

 When files are setup with any sort of discount, there is no option for a 30-day-trial with those files.  I do have a suggestion, however, which may help you and your client.  

 You could use our main customer page to create a file specifically with a 30-day-trial, then if the customer desires to use the file, you could move that file into your Wholesale/Consolidated Billing Profile.

I hope this helps,

People come to Accountants Community 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.
