One of the first lists that you should create in your new QuickBooks Online account is your Products and Services List. Your products and services will need to be setup before you start creating estimates, projects, invoices, sales receipts, vendor bills or expense entries in QBO. You will not be able to create any purchase or sales forms that include the products and services that you purchase and sell until you have created your product and service items.

Track Income, Cost of Goods Sold and On-Hand Inventory in QBO

You select a product or service item from your existing list each time you create a purchase or sales form in your QBO account. You will not be able to create any Sales Reports that include the products and services that you sell until you have created your product and service items to include your purchase and sales forms. For this reason, we have included a look into your new QBO account for existing products and services as a component of our Good-Bookkeeping Score™ . If you have not entered your products and services, we consider this an underutilization of your new QuickBooks Online account.
