An estimate is an approximate calculation or measurement of any value or inventory.

An invoice is a document which has a list of all goods and services provided to you and also describe all the details about costing of those services.

An estimate is given to the customer in form of a quotation or a proposal along with the scheme of the work and services which will be provided to them.

Once this plan is complete and all the mentioned services are provided to the customer as per your proposal then we proceed with billing the customer for the work been performed. Then we add the details from the estimate directly to the invoice.

This entire estimate somewhat appears analogous to an invoice but it has a different purpose to perform. This can be sent to the customer but it will not be taken as an accurate transaction. The value in this estimate is not billed to the customer or added to their account unless this estimate is added to the invoice.

Now that we know what an estimate is and what is an invoice let u see how do we add this estimate to the invoice.

Kindly note that we can add only those estimates to invoices which are in Pending or Accepted status can.

Launch your QuickBooks and navigate to the menu options on the left hand side.

There go to Sales option and at this point go ahead by selecting Customers.

Now further advance yourself to Money Bar and hence continue by clicking on Estimate.

Proceed ahead by choosing the estimate that you want to add to invoice.

Later move further to the Action column.

There you click on Start invoice.

Here we can click on Add to add all the estimated that we want to create invoice for.

It is very important that you evaluate the details that are filled in by estimates and you may even edit if that is needed.

 When you are able to trace the required estimate or quote figure out the customer’s name mentioned in there. Cross check if that name is same to the customer name chosen when the invoice was initially being created.

 If the required estimate or quote does not display the same name as the one with invoices in beginning you can select it and change the customer name.

Finally click on Save. This will omit the first reason for the estimate not being able to be added to invoice.

If you face any difficulty in checking the customer name and changing in case of discrepancy or if you have any questions then we recommend you to contact QuickBooks Customer Care support for further assistance.

If the name on the estimate is same as the one when creating an invoice then there can be a possibility that the status option selected for the chosen estimate is not the appropriate one.

So the other possible reason is that the Status section may not be displaying the appropriate Status of the required estimate.

 In your QuickBooks look for the estimate or the quote that was previously created.

 On this estimate check on its upper left corner and see if the Estimate status displaying there is set accordingly to the one you require. It can be Accepted or Pending.

If you see an incorrect status then you may change the status and click on Save.
