Many QuickBooks users doubt, whether it is possible to merge vendors or not. Well, it is very much possible to merge vendors in QuickBooks. The process of merging vendors permits the users to consolidate all the transactions. The best part is that the users are not required to enter the transactions over and over again, one after the other. The merging process basically deletes one vendor and at the same time, reassigns the entire relevant data to the other vendor. Once these steps are completed, it should be noted that things can’t be reversed. This means that everything is permanent, from deletion of one vendor to transfer of the data to another.
Points to remember before beginning with the merging procedure
Well, before you begin with the merging procedure, it is better to update yourself with certain pointers that you should definitely keep in mind. To make it easier for you, we have jotted down a few of them:
Always ensure that you are in single-user mode, and if by any chance you are using the multi-user mode, then don’t think much simply switch to the single-user mode.
The next point that requires your attention is to turn off the Multi-currency feature.
The user is also required to ensure that he/she is not merging paid through online banking vendors, tax authorities vendors, and also the direct deposit vendors.
Another matter to be considered is that the merging process can’t be reversed once performed. Thus, double-check before merging the vendors and ensure that you are merging the accounts that are really needed to be merged.
Lastly, the only way to undo a merge is to restore the backup of the data file.
To begin with, the user is required to access the merge vendors window
There can be two alternatives, one for the QuickBooks Desktop Accountant Edition: In this, the user has to visit the Accountant menu and then select the Client Data Review, followed by visiting the Merge Vendors option
And for QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise, the user has to visit the company menu and then select the Accounting tools, followed by visiting the merge vendors option.
Moving ahead, in the merge vendors window, select the vendors to be merged, and then tapping on to the Next option.

The last step is, on the confirmation prompt Yes, on the Merge Complete Window, the user is required to select the OK option.
Merging vendors in QuickBooks Desktop 2018 and below
The very first step is to select the Vendors menu and then opt for the Vendor Center.
Moving ahead, the user is required to right click on the Vendor’s name to keep, followed by selecting Edit Vendor.
Now, the next step is to copy vendor’s name.
After that, tap on Cancel option to return to vendor center.

In the next step, the user needs to replace the vendor name with one copied, and then selecting the OK option.
