Estimates-or quotes, or bids-are useful tools when you're pitching a sale of products or services. Here's how QuickBooks Online handles them.
A Dedicated Form
You probably already know how to create an invoice. If so, you shouldn't have any trouble generating estimates because the forms are very similar. To get started, click the + (plus) sign in the upper right corner of the screen. In the Customers column, click Estimates. A form like this will open:
- A percentage of each line item,
- A custom amount for each line, or,
- The total of all lines.
