Update the payment information on your account

  • If you know your customer and subscription number (can be found on the regular billing receipts you receive)

    • Important: updating your payment information doesn't clear any outstanding balances.
      • If you have an outstanding balance, it will be cleared on your next billing date. You may still receive missed payment notices from Intuit until your next billing date when your balance is fully cleared.
      • If you have missed two payments in a row and you can no longer open QuickBooks Desktop, contact QuickBooks Desktop support to settle the balance and reactivate your license.
      • Your updated payment information will be applied to future billing statements.
  • If you're unable to locate your customer and subscription number
  • To switch from credit card payments to pre-authorized payments, complete the Pre-Authorized Payment Authorization form.
