Revenue Share

A new way to thank you for our shared success

Introducing the ProAdvisor Preferred Pricing revenue share—a program that recognizes the work you do recommending, setting up, and onboarding new clients to QuickBooks products. You’ll now receive 30% of the billed price your client pays each month on new QuickBooks Online or Payroll subscriptions.*

Client discount

Pass along a 50% discount to your client for 3 months, plus their first month is free.

Grow revenue

You’ll receive 30% of the billed price on base fees and 15% of employee fees for 12 months.

Save time

Your client is charged directly, so you spend less time managing subscriptions.

Enrolling your firm in revenue share

This must be completed by your firm’s primary admin or firm owner, and you’ll need your firm’s tax ID to begin.

1. Sign in to QuickBooks Online Accountant. Select the gear icon.

2. Select Subscriptions and billing.

3. Click the Revenue share payouts tab and click the Get started button.

4. Complete and Submit the application.

Adding a client as part of revenue share

Once your firm is enrolled in the program, it’s easy to start a new client subscription with revenue share:

1. From QuickBooks Online Accountant, select Add client.

2. Select Revenue share under the Bill my client option, and then select the QuickBooks Online and/or Payroll product(s) for your client.

3. Add your client’s information and select Save.

This will start a 30-day free trial for your client. We’ll email your client with instructions for how to access their new account. Before the free trial period ends, they’ll need to add their payment information to activate the subscription and receive a 50% discount for the first 3 months. Clients are not notified of a firm’s participation in the revenue share program.

Calculating revenue share

Once you’re enrolled in revenue share, you’ll receive a monthly payout for all eligible client subscriptions. Please note that it will take 1–2 months to begin receiving payouts after a subscription is started. That’s because your client begins with a 30-day free trial, and the payout is calculated only after your client starts a paid subscription.
