Using Debit Cards

How do I enter debit card purchases?

Goldenseal small business accounting software handles debit card purchases very similarly to purchases paid for by credit card or check. When you buy something and use a debit card to pay for it, follow these steps:

  1. Choose Material Purchases from the Costs menu.
  2. Click the New button.
  3. Enter the vendor.
  4. Enter a brief description of the item purchases (you can also use a breakdown to show multiple items).
  5. Enter the job and cost category to which the item applies.
  6. Enter Checking Debit into the Payment Method field.
  7. Enter a Checking account into the Details field.
  8. Click the Enter key to save the record. Goldenseal will automatically deduct cash from the Checking account, and mark this item as paid.
