That's a bizarre message. How can QB know what you sell? (it can't btw, not really.)

I got this message as well after applying to process payments with QB Self-Employed. There is no way to figure out what's going on because phone support keeps referring me to chat support and vice versa. I just started using QB and if I can't use it to process payments then I will have to cancel the service. Very disappointed.

Hi there, @dst2.

 

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I'm here to get you pointed to the right direction to get assistance with turning on your payments with QuickBooks.

 

To verify the reason on why you're unable to turn on payments in QuickBooks, It would be best to reach out to our Merchant Services Department. This team is the best resource for such inquiries, as they're able to request account information to pull up your company and share sensitive information, while this is a public forum.  Once they have this information, they'll be able to further assist with determining the details about why you keep on getting this message when processing payments.

 

You can locate their contact information at the following link:QuickBooks Payments Contact Us.

 

Feel free to reach back out to me if you have any other questions about payments. I'll make sure to get back to you as soon as I can. Thanks for coming to the Community.

 This still doesn’t explain why QB not turn on payment. Doent the information requested online form enough to know what a small business sell. If not, QB better cancel online application and we go bu merchant service depart for aproval

 

Its very a huge time wasitng after aong form

I know this thread is months old, but don't bother, there are better options to pick over QB.

 

"We can't turn on payments for you."

 

If you're reading this, you're better of with WaveApps for Payments, even Stripe, over your PaySimple. Use an alternative invoicing services, because if there are problems now. Even if you're approved now for a merchant account with QB, in the future, 4-6 successful payments away from now, QB "risk software" can shut you down.

 

This looks bad in the eyes of your customers and it will cost your bottom line, trust me don't go with these guys. Will try payroll, if things don't go well there I will be gone.

 

I received the same message, I am not in the prohibited businesses category, I do web design. We don't get paid until after the job is done. The risk for non-tangible services is very low vs tangible items, I know I used to sell merchant services back in '07.

This team will tell you it is a "business decision" and they will not give you a reason for being declined. Make your own business decision and kick these jokers to to curb.

When you call they tell you, "Sorry, due to our proprietary processes we cannot tell you why we decided not to process payments for you." What a ridiculous process that lacks transparency. I'm going to change to a company that will process my payments, or AT LEAST tell me why they won't.

Same here, what a bummer. If that's the case QB will not work for me.

Never had issues getting accepted by for example Freshbooks, lease companies, etc.

 

Been in business for over 5 years, I'm not a minor and we have an excellent credit profile.

The company is based in Canada.

 

No idea why it is rejected.

Just so you know when you are telling others to do this. I have been on hold and have been transferred between two different departments for over 2 hours now. Neither department can help or answer the questions have. It seems as though QuickBooks is not recognizing incorporated freelancers as an actual business.

This is not what we want you to experience with us, @brittneyatrahan.

 

Normally, transferring to a different department depends on the product you have purchased.

 

However, if you're a freelancer and using QuickBooks Self-Employed (QBSE), you'll want to contact our QBSE support team.

 

Here's how:

  1. Go to the (?) Help icon.
  2. Click Contact Us.
  3. Type in support and click Continue.
  4. Choose either Start a chat or Get a callback.

In case you need to learn some best practices in managing your QBSE account, you can check our Help articles page for reference.

 

Our door is always open for you in case you need more help. Take care!
