Re: Quickbooks POS freezes right after a debit transaction is authorized,

I appreciate the details you've given, @LuckyBait


There are several factors that may cause the freezing behavior of your POS. You've got me here to help share some information about the cause and resolution.


Having an outdated version of POS may result in some odd performance such as freezing. To get this sorted out, you may consider upgrading your QuickBooks to the updated version. This is to ensure that you have the latest POS updates and be able to work it smoothly.


Another factor is the stored data on your company file. This may affect the performance of the program that is connected to your QuickBooks. To learn more about how to decrease the data on your file, please refer to this link: Manage your data file.


Lastly, your computer system storage can also impact the performance of all the programs that are running. There are some resolutions that you can check out to get this sorted out: Manage your computers.


However, if none of these solutions works for you, you may reach out to our Customer Care Team, they have the tools to check this matter for you. 


This should get you on track, LuckyBait.
