New: Swipe Cards in QuickBooks Online- It’s Faster, Easier, and Cheaper
Update April 29th: The card swipe feature is now available. Thank you for your patience as we worked through these issues.
Update April 3rd: We have completed fixing the issues found in the previous release and we’re currently testing the fixes. Once we are confident that everything is working correctly, the card swipe feature will be made available. We apologize for the delays.
Update March 6th: Until the card swipe feature returns to QBO, you can use your card reader with the Merchant Service Center to get the swipe rate. See the steps here
Update March 5th: Customers will temporarily be unable to see the card swipe feature. We encountered some bugs in our last release and wanted to make sure everything is perfect first. We’re working to put this feature back in your QuickBooks as soon as possible. Don’t worry, you can still order your card readers and you will be able to swipe again soon.
