Error Message: Duplicate Name Exists error of type: Vendor. The name supplied already exists.

Applies to: ConnectWise Manage, QuickBooks Online

Error

How can this happen?

This normally means you have a vendor of the same name. You cannot have a customer (invoice) for a contact that is also a supplier (bill).

Quickbooks Online doesn't allow for a Company Account to be a Customer (Client) and a Vendor.

Solution

You will need to ensure that the records is separated.

If you have vendors that are customers, then you will need to prefix a new customer record in Connectwise (Vendor).
