Is there a way to use gopayments with a desktop computer? I don't want to use a mobile device.

Happy Friday, carrieg2.

 

Thanks for reaching out here in the Community. I'd be glad to provide some info about accepting payments in QuickBooks Online. 

 

The GoPayment app is typically used for accepting customer payments while on the go. However, you can absolutely sign up for a Payments account to do the same thing on your computer through QuickBooks Online (QBO). Here's how:

 

1. Sign-in your QBO account as an admin.

2. Click the Gear icon in the top right corner.

3. Select Account and Settings, and then the Payments tab.

4. In the QuickBooks Payment section, choose Learn more

 

Complete the following prompts to activate your new Payments account. I recommend checking out this article for more info about signing up for QuickBooks Payments.

 

Additionally, this link offers details about the different ways to accept and process customer payments

 

Now you'll be able to accept your customers payments in QuickBooks Online from the comfort of your desk chair. Don't hesitate to reach back out if you have any other questions. I'll be here to help.

We already use the payments option. We wanted to be able to swipe/tap cards as well, without a mobile device.

We already use the payments screen to manually enter card information. We want to be able to swipe/tap without having a cell or tablet connected.

Thanks for getting back to me with those details, carrieg2.

 

Most of the compatible card readers connect through Bluetooth on a mobile device, but there is another option. The Magtek card reader connects to your computer via USB. You can find out more about this reader by visiting this link: Order an Intuit Payment Solutions Magtek Card Reader.

 

With this info, you'll be able to skip the mobile device, and still take swiped payments. Please let me know if you need assistance with anything else.
