Is there a way to set Invoice payment terms to 30 days after DELIVERY DATE.   
Quick books appears to only be able to calculate due date from Invoice date.

Hi Suzanne.  The due date is driven by the Invoice date.  How do you anticipate that you desire could be achieved as I presume that you are despatching the invoice with the goods?  To do what you want to do would require you to amend the invoice after you have initially entered it to reflect the date of delivery and how do you determine that?  Your customer would presumably then have to tell you when their order has arrived which would become very messy in my opinion.  If you are so insistent on wanting this, why don't you just add say 3, 4 or 5 days to the 30 days, to give time for the order to arrive?

Hi John,

Thank so much for your response.

I do what you have suggested for one of my customers, which is set to 37 days.

However, this won't work for my present situation, because for this particular Customer, we order the stock in from O/Seas & delivery is not until the following month.  I have to raise the invoice to obtain a deposit.  

I will just manually enter the due date, it's the only option.

Thanks again for taking the time to reply, I appreciate it,

Sue

Hi Suzanne,

Maybe it is overkill, but if you really want the term to be 30 days after the delivery date, an automated solution would help. Let me know if it is still the case :)

Thanks,

Hi Phuong,

Thanks very much for the suggestion, but as it is just a couple of Customers at present, I'll just do it manually.     
Will keep in mind the automated solutions & look into it if needed at a later time.   

Thanks Again,
