Using QuickBooks Online to send payments has been a convenient option for business owners all these years. It simplifies the process of receiving payments from vendors, especially for those who are already using QuickBooks for their financial management.

Recently, Intuit, the company that makes QuickBooks Online, announced pricing changes for QuickBooks Payments, starting on October 2, 2023. This means both current and new QuickBooks Online users in the US who use QuickBooks Payments will have to pay more. With the price going up, this could hurt your small business’s finances.

As part of the new pricing plan, Intuit is getting rid of monthly fees, and everyone will switch to the new pay-as-you-go pricing system. The cost of handling payments from Card and Digital Wallet Customers using a Card Reader has gone up by a lot, about 51%. If you manually type in card details, the price has increased by about 13%. For customers who pay through an invoice, the price increased only a little, by about 1%. And if you want your money instantly, that now costs 75% more. These price changes affect how much businesses have to pay when they accept different types of payments.

Forwardly’s QuickBooks Online integration benefits

Small businesses often face challenges due to delayed payments, causing disruptions in their cash flow. Forwardly not only resolves the issue of late payments but also provides a comprehensive range of features. Let’s explore these benefits.
