Why are my COGS different between Vend's Sales Reports and the QBO Journal Entry?

Question

Why is it that looking into a COGS journal in QBO shows a different value than the COGS displayed in the Vend Sales Report for the same day?

Setup

  • Vend for Mac or PC
  • Quickbooks Online Integration

Answer

Each Journal Entry for COGS represents a Register in Vend. If you have multiple registers in your account, each Register Closure invoice will create an entry for its COGS value. Filter your Vend Sales Report based on the journal you are looking into to show that the COGS values match up, or add up the total value of COGS journals based on the day you are looking into.
