QuickBooks Online uses Vendors for companies or persons that you purchase goods and services from. You might refer to these contacts as suppliers in your everyday language, but in Quickbooks Online they are referred to as Vendors. Vendors will involve money going out of the business. Also a Vendor can be a 1099 Subcontractor.
