If you have been in business for any length of time, you know that accepting credit cards and payments is vital to your success. You have also probably realized that there is no shortage of companies trying to gain your business – either by calling excessively in the middle of you trying to help your best customer or walking through your front door wanting to talk about saving you money. The problem with most of these offers is that they are all the same, just packaged differently. Lots of attempts at “rate cutting”, but never really providing anything much in the way of value. So, what makes QuickBooks merchant services and payment processing any different? Well, lets take a look at the top 11 reasons why you should be using QuickBooks Merchant Services (also known as Intuit Payments) especially if you are using QuickBooks accounting software to manage your business.
1. Get paid 2x faster
People who use QuickBooks Online with Payments get paid on average twice as fast as those who don’t, based on data from 9/13-2/14. It’s easy when you can email invoices with a Pay Now link, and accept online payments via credit cards, debit cards, and ACH bank transfers. Or accept mobile payments and get paid on the spot with your iPhone, iPad, or Android device.
2. Keep track of all your invoices easily
With QuickBooks, you can schedule invoices to be sent automatically to your customers, individually or in batches. QuickBooks keeps track of all your invoices in one place, so you can keep an eye on the ones that are overdue.
3. Email invoices with a Pay Now link
Customers can easily make instant online or mobile payments. You’ll see when they’ve opened your invoice and when they’ve paid it – no more hearing “The check is in the mail”.
4. Invoices and payments are automatically reconciled
QuickBooks auto-updates invoices and your books when you get paid. The reconciling is done for you, eliminating the most time-consuming task of manually matching payments with invoices and reconciling with bank statement, whew!
5. Payments go straight to the bank
QuickBooks automatically deposits your payments in 2-3 days. No need for manual transfers. Saving you a trip to the bank.
6. Simple, affordable pricing
Two pricing plans to keep your fees to a minimum. If you’re just starting out, select our pay-as-you-go plan and only pay when you accept payments. No obligation, no monthly fee. If you have more processing needs, our low monthly rates allows you to save even more on rates. You’ll never go wrong with rates as low as 50¢ ACH per bank transfers or 1.75% + 25¢ per swipe. Choose what’s best for you.
7. Get paid instantly, anywhere, anytime
Accept mobile payments anywhere your business takes you. Key in credit card information on your mobile device, or swipe cards using your free card reader. Credit card charges are processed instantly, and, of course, every payment syncs seamlessly in QuickBooks.
8. All major credit and debit cards accepted
Accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express payments, as well as ACH bank transfers.
