How the credit card payment system works
QuickBooks has a built-in payment system that processes credit card transactions. When you enter a payment into QuickBooks, we submit the request to the brand (like Visa or MasterCard) who sends it to the financial institution that issued the card. The transaction gets approved or declined and a response is sent back up the chain. This process happens in seconds.

How the ACH Network payment system works
The ACH (Automated Clearing House) Network is a funds distribution system that moves money electronically. It is used for debit card transactions, direct deposits of payroll, Social Security benefits, and more. This is one of the most secure payment methods available today. ACH payments and eChecks are part of the same secure system and are processed for free by QuickBooks.

How our mobile payment system works
Take payments with your mobile device using the QuickBooks mobile app. Plug in our mobile card reader to swipe, dip, or tap credit cards and ask your customer to sign directly on your phone or tablet (if a signature is required). Customers can include a tip and can choose to receive a receipt via email. The payment system inside QuickBooks take care of the payment processing.
