How ProAdvisor Preferred Pricing works

Based on input from accounting professionals like you, ProAdvisor Preferred Pricing was designed to provide best-in-class discounts with the flexibility needed to match the way you manage client subscriptions. In an effort to offer a simpler pricing system across our ecosystem, the ProAdvisor Preferred Pricing program includes QuickBooks Online, QuickBooks Online Payroll and QuickBooks Time.

Through the ProAdvisor Preferred Pricing program, you can pay the cost of a client's subscription or have them pay directly on their own. Either way, being part of the ProAdvisor Preferred Pricing program lets you pass along pricing discounts to your clients.

With the ProAdvisor discount, you pay for your client’s subscription and can offer ongoing discounts off the current list price with the option to cancel at any time. Each month, you're billed monthly for clients' subscriptions and you get an itemized view of all of your firm-billed subscriptions for easy tracking.

If your client decides to be billed directly, you can give your clients a Direct discount on their subscription for a limited time.

Advantages of ProAdvisor Preferred Pricing

  • Long-term discounts - ProAdvisor Preferred Pricing provides the best long-term savings option to your firm and clients, including our only ongoing discount. This ongoing QuickBooks Online discount is only available through this program for accounting professionals like you. Note: The ProAdvisor Preferred Pricing depends on the current list price of the subscription, and is subject to change.
  • Flexibility - ProAdvisor Preferred Pricing gives your firm flexibility for what it can offer. With the ProAdvisor discount, you can include the cost of QuickBooks Online as part of your firm's services or invoice customers for a specific discounted rate. If you want for your client to pay, you can select the Direct discount. It's up to your firm.
  • Peace of mind - With the ProAdvisor discount, your customers don't have to worry about subscriptions or fees since you handle it all for them.
