Where to buy QB Desktop for Mac 2020?

Does anyone know where to buy a copy of QB for Mac Desktop 2020?  I'm currently on QB Mac 2015, and  running Mac Sierra.  Because of other software issues, I will very soon need to upgrade to either High Sierra or Mojave, but not Catalina (so QB 2021 is out of the question). 

QB Mac 2015 apparently won't run on High Sierra, so I am hoping to find a copy of 2020,  I've searched high and low, but the only one i can find is a download on eBay for $50.   The price is appealing, but it makes me nervous.  I'd rather buy a packaged product. 

If anyone here knows of  source, or is willing to sell their copy of 2020, please let me know.

 

Thanks,

Brian

If you are located in the US, you may have time to purchase a new one time license of QB Desktop 2020 until next week from certain partners. For QBD 2020 Mac for 1 user, you may purchase it worth less than $325. If you hit the wall, you may contact and purchase it from us.

Where to buy QB Desktop for Mac 2020?

Hi there,

I finally downloaded QB 2020 Mac, and successfully installed and updated my existing company files.  I now want to register the software and pay the fee, but am being asked for the "License and Product Numbers in you confirmation email".  However i didn't get a confirmation email.  What is the best way to proceed in this case?

 

Also, am i able to install on my desktop and laptop, as long as i make sure to quit before switching machines? (I keep the company files in a Dropbox folder, so they are accessible to either machine). 

 

Thanks,

Brian

Hello Michelle,

I finally downloaded and installed QB2020 for Mac.  Installed successfully, and company files updated. 

I am trying to register and pay, but am being asked for "the License and Product Numbers in my confirmation email". However because i downloaded directly from the link you sent, i didn't get a confirmation email.  I've followed all of the instructions online for finding my numbers, but they apply to my existing copy of 2015, not the new one i've downloaded.

 

Thanks,

Brian

Hi,

FYI the F2 key on a Mac laptop only functions to adjust the screen brightness.  However, when i open Product Information under the Help menu, I see a screen with blanks for Product Number / License Number.    I assume that is because this is an unregistered copy..... that's my problem:  That's what i need.    The copy i downloaded (QB 2020 for Mac) came through a direct link that a moderator on this forum sent me earlier in this thread.  There was no 'confirmation email'.  I can retrieve my Product / License numbers from the Intuit website for my PREVIOUS version (QB 2015 for Mac), but that is of no use to me.

 

Thanks,

I'm here to help you find the product and license number, bsp seattle.

 

You can log in to the Account Management portal to determine your license and product number before installing QuickBooks. Let me show you how:

  1. Go to http://camps.intuit.com.
  2. Select QuickBooks Desktop.
  3. Under Product and Services, select your subscription.
  4. Click Details.

In addition, here's an article you can read to learn more about this portal: Manage your QuickBooks Desktop subscriptions and services.

 

You can also use the License Locator tool to get an email with the information.

 

On the other hand, make sure to check your email folders:

  1. Open your email and check your Spam or Junk folder.
  2. If it’s there, move the email to your Inbox.
  3. If not, make sure to add Intuit's email address to your contact list to ensure you'll receive emails from QuickBooks.

I've added this link for future guide: What's new in QuickBooks Desktop for Mac 2020.

 

Keep me posted if there's anything else I can help you with the newly installed QuickBooks. I'll be around whenever you need additional information.

Where to buy QB Desktop for Mac 2020?

This is getting very frustrating.  Instead of simply replying with pre-packaged instructions to what you think might be my problem here, please read what I'm saying:

 

I have a registered copy of QB2015 Mac, and have NO PROBLEM finding my Product / License numbers for that, so the License Locator tool, or the F2 key thing, are of no use to me.

 

MY PROBLEM IS THIS:  I have downloaded a NEW COPY OF QB2020 MAC from the web link that was provided by a moderator early in this thread.  This download DID NOT come with a confirmation email, so I DO NOT HAVE A PRODUCT OR LICENSE NUMBER THAT I CAN USE TO REGISTER THIS NEW VERSION OF QB. 

 

PLEASE, can someone tell me how to register/pay for this piece of software??
