QuickBooks Desktop supports only the Magtek card reader through USB and the chip card reader through mobile. Furthermore, these hardware peripherals should only be connected to a computer directly, without the assistance of a USB hub or extension. You can accept payments at your company or on the go with the GoPayment app. It’s even easier to handle payments if you have a Bluetooth card reader. After you’ve placed your order for a card reader, follow these steps to get everything set up so you can begin accepting payments.

Please note that card readers are compatible with the GoPayment app as well as other QuickBooks products. You may also create and email invoices to customers to pay online if you use QuickBooks Online in a web browser.

Step 1: Set up your card reader: To charge the battery, plug in your Bluetooth reader. Use the USB cord that came with your reader to connect it to your computer. Pair it with the GoPayment app once it’s been charged. Depending on which GoPayment app you have, follow these steps:

How do I get a QuickBooks card reader?

Get ready to accept mobile payments. You can accept payments on the fly if you use QuickBooks Payments. With the GoPayment app, you may order a mobile card reader to swipe, dip, or tap credit cards. We recommend ordering through the GoPayment app if you are a new user and your first card reader. You can order a new card reader using the app or through the Merchant Service Center if you already have one. In 4 to 7 business days, your card reader should arrive.

Purchase a card reader: Use your company’s physical mailing address when ordering a card reader. Don’t send your mail to a P.O. box.
