I have a question. I work with businesses who want me to run credit cards on file to make the payment. I figured Quickbooks desktop has some type of way to save a credit card and run it. In the edit customer screen it allows you save credit card info? Can this be used to receive a payment?
It’s good to see you here, @packergeek.
I’m happy to assist you so you can go ahead and run your task efficiently.
In the customer’s screen, you’re allowed to enter credit card info so you can receive payments from the customer. However, you’ll need to enable or sign up for QuickBooks Payments first to use the feature.
There are a few ways to sign up. Through GoPayment mobile app, QuickBooks desktop Point-of-Sales (POS), on the web, by phone, and through your QuickBooks Desktop account.
You can follow these steps:
Here’s the article that gives you additional information about the feature: Sign up for QuickBooks Payments.
Once the process is done, you can now set up or enter credit card information to those customers you’d like to receive the payment online. Here’s how:
I also attached an article for reference on how to accept payments and fees: Process and take payments with QuickBooks Payments.
This will get you in the right direction. Please let me know if you have any other concerns. I’ll be here to help. Wishing you the best!
Thanks for actively responding, @packergeek.
To clarify, you don't need to enter the credit card info every time you run the card payment as the system saved the credit card information entered in the Customer Center.

So there must be a disconnect. I have entered the credit card information for the customer under payment settings. The credit card is saved. Now I create the invoice and then click receive payments. What is the next step after this?
I'm here to walk you through on the process of receiving online payments from your customers.

Next, you'll have to enable payment options.
Here's how to enable payment options for all customers:
If you need to enable the payment options for customers of your choice, follow these steps:
You'll have to resend the invoice so your customer will have the option to pay it online. Take a look at this article for the steps: Send online invoices in QuickBooks Desktop. Scroll down and look for Step 3: Send an online invoice.

Hello there, packergeek.
I'm joining this thread so I can share how to receive customer payments.
Yes, you can process a credit card payment using the stored credit card details. However, this is only applicable to recurring payments.
If you let your clients pay the invoices online through emailed invoices, they'll have to enter their credit card details manually. If you'll be using the Received Payment option in QuickBooks Desktop, you'll have to enter their credit card details again.
