Using Quickbooks Online vs. the Desktop Version

Quickbooks is one of the most popular software programs among business owners these days. Owners of large companies, small business, and every business type in between can benefit from having access to Quickbooks software. It is great for tracking expenses, transactions, profits, and all other financial aspects of a business. Not to mention, business owners everywhere agree that it is an extremely easy program to use. There are two main types of Quickbooks software: the online version and the desktop version. There are several important differences with each that are important for business owners to be aware of.

Quickbooks Online

These days, Quickbooks online is becoming an increasingly popular option for business owners to use because it can be synced with merchant accounts to keep information constantly updated. This saves business owners the time and hassle of having to download transaction records and enter them into the system manually. Furthermore, growing businesses tend to enjoy the online version of Quickbooks because of the fact that up to 25 different authorized users can be logged into the program at once. This is great for larger businesses with employees that need access to the account at any given time. Finally, Quickbooks online comes with free live support at any time in addition to free upgrades.

Quickbooks Desktop Version

For smaller business that do not necessarily need all of the bells and whistles of the online edition, the more affordable desktop version may suffice. While this version does not allow for the easy syncing between merchant accounts and Quickbooks software, businesses with fewer credit card processing transactions to input can do so manually without hassle. Furthermore, the desktop version of Quickbooks does not allow for multiple authorized users to be logged in at the same time, as the software is installed on just one computer. Still, this can be a great option for smaller businesses.

Overall, there are many differences between Quickbooks online and desktop versions. Both are great options for any business owner looking to keep better track of the company’s expenses, profits, credit card processing, and all other financial aspects of running the business.



It took me a while to decide who I wanted to settle with to handle all of my credit card transactions because every company wants to make it sound like they're offering you the best rates. was able compare and beat all of the other offers I received. They were also able to provide me the fairest price on my EMV-compliant terminal. My sales representative and the support team were there to assist every step of the way. Ultimately, I'm looking forward to a long term relationship with this company.

The service was very professional, my sales person (Steven B.) was very well versed in the product and most helpful in getting our company set up to accept credit cards via my cell phone. Their rates are some of the lowest on the market and their service is unparalleled. I will recommend them to anyone requiring a credit card processing service.

I called indecisive about getting a device, but speaking to your Sales Consultant completely settled me. He was very professional, knowledgeable and patiently walked me through the process. He always responded to my voicemails and answered all my questions. After I received my merchandise, he called following up to ensure that I had received it. Customer service I would say is 5 stars. Stellar! Thanks Credit Card Processing, I will definitely recommend you.
