Multiple freight accounts?

    So I've looked around and I think the answer is no, but I thought I'd see if anyone knows something.  We just acquired a new company which is doing online B2C sales - which previously hasn't been done in our company.  As they're trying to identify the costs associated, they set up a new GL account to try to track the freight charges for this company and they want to change the default freight account for this customer.  From what I've read, there's no way to do this - the default freight account is for an entire company and can't be specified at a customer level.  Can someone confirm this?

    Blair,
    I believe that is true.  To get around this you can set up a Service Inventory item to track the freight.  Then the freight charges are entered as a line item.  This allows you to assign a specific GL account to that item and also provides additional report options from the item activity.

    Blair,

    I would take a look at Flexicoder by eOne.  You can designate different default GL accounts based on a number of criteria.
