Link your company to an existing payments account

Learn how to link your company to a QuickBooks Online Payments account.

To process credit card payments you'll need to connect a Payments account (also known as QuickBooks Merchant Service or GoPayment) to a company. You can only link one company at a time. So if you link your account to the current company, you'll no longer be able to accept credit cards for the previously connected company.

In the article below, we'll show you how to link your company.

Before you get started

Here are a few things to know before you get started.

  • Do you use, or want to set up, Recurring Billing or Automatic Credit Card Billing in QuickBooks Desktop or the Merchant Service Center? If so, before you link Payments to your QuickBooks Online account, turn off your scheduled transactions. You can recreate your scheduled payments as memorized Sales Receipts once you've linked your account. Otherwise, you'll have to add these payments to your new file manually and manage them in the Merchant Service Center.
  • If you currently use your Payments account in QuickBooks for Mac, please contact Customer Support so we can configure your account properly.
  • QuickBooks Desktop Point of Sale merchant accounts cannot be linked to QuickBooks Online.
  • If you use GoPayment, you'll need to set up your users again in the Merchant Service Center after you link your account to QuickBooks Online.
