Deleting an Accounts Receivable Customer or Marking Them as Inactive



This article explains how to permanently delete an Accounts Receivable customer. Note that only Accounts Receivable customers with NO transaction history can be deleted. If a customer has any transactions (either current or moved to history), the customer cannot be deleted. Instead they can be marked as inactive.

Once a customer is marked as inactive, they can still have tickets entered for them. However, they cannot use the payment type of “Charge” on an Invoice.



From the StockTrac® main menu, go into the Accounts Receivable module. Click on the Edit Customer button.

The following screen will display:

Window Capture c

Click Yes to delete the customer.


If the customer does have transactions, you will see this message instead:

Click OK to change this customer to inactive.
