Intuit QuickBooks Merchant Services Fees & Rates
This is one of the irritating parts of the Intuit merchant services. In which every variation of the QuickBooks payment comes with the own pricing and the difference is very little, so you must have to pay attention. You should remember one thing you are going with more than $7,500 per month then you are eligible for the customs rates that will help you to save your lot of money.
For QuickBooks Online Payments
QuickBooks Online especially support the PayPal payments, that you will not get with the Desktop version. It is the best thing because many businesses currently using PayPal for payment.

For QuickBooks Desktop Payments
Keep in mind that the QuickBooks desktop version of Payments does not include PayPal support. You will also see that ACH transactions cost $ 1.00 each, while they are free from the online plan. You may also want to note that the per-transaction fee is high.
One thing I’ve noticed repeatedly is how much cheaper QB Desktop is than QB Online, since desktop software is a one-time purchase, while QB Online is a monthly subscription. However, the pricing for accepting payments is less expensive with the online version, and I have to make sure it is intended as an additional incentive.
|Pay As You Go Plan||Monthly Plan|
|Month Fees: 0.00 dollars per transaction||Month Fees: 20.00 dollars|
|ACH Transfer: 1.00 dollars per transaction||ACH Transfer: 1.00 dollars|

With the month to month plan, you’re going to save 0.4% per transaction, but at the same time, you’re going to pay $ 0.25 on every transaction. If your pocket doesn’t allow you to pro then you must have to choose the pay as you go plan. that is 0.25dollars is going to add up pretty quickly and give you the good revenue.
