Acceptable payment methods for QuickBooks Payments in Canada

SOLVEDby QuickBooks62Updated 1 week ago

The Payments (Merchant Services) feature in QuickBooks Online allows business owners to process credit card payments through an invoice link, as well as manually enter payments in the product.

The following list details what can and can't be accepted when using the Payments feature in QuickBooks.



Accepted payment methods

Credit card payments made through the following Canadian payment methods can be entered manually in the product, or made through the invoice link:

  • Discover
  • Mastercard
  • Visa
  • Apple Pay*

* Apple Pay is not a separate payment method, but rather a housing application for the above credit card types.

With customer authorization, recurring payments can be set up using the following payment methods:

  • Discover
  • Mastercard
  • Visa


Unsupported payment methods

  • Payments from currencies other than Canadian currency.
  • Debit card payments. Visa and MasterCard debit cards do not always have an address associated with the card profile. As a result, the system cannot verify the credit details, and the process does not complete.
  • American-sourced credit cards, even with with Canadian details.
