Learn how to add an authorized contact to your Merchant Services account.

You can often rely on a third party bookkeeping to handle the transactions on your account. Adding them as an authorized contact on your Merchant Services account allows them to communicate directly with Intuit Payment Solutions.

Note: Depending on your account and product, you can add and manage QuickBooks users and accessibility. In the Merchant Service Center, you can invite and assign roles, see Add a user to QuickBooks Payments account for more details.

    • Signature of the current Authorized Principal on the merchant account. Note that a current contact can't add or request to add an additional contact.
    • Copy of the Principal's Valid Driver's License. Make sure to include the front and back sides of the license.
