QuickBooks Point of Sale V10 – Using Quick Pick items

QuickBooks Point of Sale V10 has a new feature called Quick Pick that QuickBooks Point of Sale clients have found quite useful. QuickBooks POS users often sell items that cannot be conveniently labeled: candy, wood flooring, pens, drinks, food. In prior QuickBooks POS versions, users needed to print tags for those items and affix them to sheets of paper so that they could be scanned. With the new Quick Pick feature in QuickBooks Point of Sale V10, you can now click on a Quick Pick button in the Make a Sale or Receive Items screen and pick items from pre-set Inventory Item groups.

Here is how to set up Quick Pick items:

  1. Go to QuickBooks POS Company Preferences and, under Inventory, create your Inventory Quick Pick groups (for example: drinks, candy, food, jewelry)
  2. Go to your QuickBooks Point of Sale Item List and, for each item that you want to make a Quick Pick item, in the Basic Info section, specify the Quick Pick group in which you want to list the item.
  3. Now you are ready to sell or receive a Quick Pick item by selecting it from one of the Quick Pick groups.

To sell the item on a sales receipt, click on Make a Sale, then Quick Pick Items, select the Inventory Quick Pick Item Group, and the item that you want to put on the sales receipt. There is no limit on the number of items that you can place in a group; however, it is best to keep the number of items to twelve or fewer per group, so that all items can be listed on a single Quick Pick page.
