I use this for accounting in my small business. Sometimes, it can be a pain to use for certain tasks. For instance, you cannot log a retainer check to an attorney very easily. You have to count it as a debt and income. Also, while their customer support is polite, they are not always very helpful in resolving your issue. A lot of functions cost extra. Overall, it is a decent system to keep track of finances if you are a single-owner entity and just want to keep track of payments and invoices. Cheap and effective.

I use more for invoicing than processing payment but its cheaper than paypal for processing credit cards and ACH is free. It is a great program for invoicing needs and probably book-keeping although have not played around with that enought yet.It is a very good fairly priced program to keep track and process your payments with many options including ACH, major credit cards and a few others like Apple pay

I simply do my accounting monthly and my accountant is able to log in and review and amend the monthly statements. It makes it really easy and affordable.

Powerful for Cloud-Accounting

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2016-11-04
Review Source: Capterra

QBO has made some major advances in recent years/months due to the pressure of other cloud-based accounting suites trying to steal Intuit's market share, and these advances have benefited us as end-users. Though the interface and forms-based entry is a little different than the desktop software, the functionality in QBO is realistically quite similar to the Desktop version. I have not found many limitations to QBO that require any kind of work-arounds, but at the same time, I have had some trouble with software bugs and down-time. I don't think I've experienced as much as others I have heard from, but I have run across a few issues. In comparison to the desktop software, the bugs I've encountered in QBO are almost inconsequential. When you have a bug in the desktop software, it is usually a corrupt file or the loss of information, which I have never encountered with QBO. There are a couple bells/whistles that are missing from this, like the ability to print signatures on checks, but I usually recommend against that for safety reasons anyway. On the bright side, I have seen QBO respond to feedback and implement the changes they have heard from customers, so I know that they are continually improving. At this point, I think QBO still stands out above other cloud-accounting software for its power and ability to handle many industries.Power & Functionality in the cloud world.

I have been using QBO via a web browser, iPhone app, iPad app and Mac based app for about 3 years. There are some cool things available such as reports, the ability to collect payments online, and convenience of mobile apps. However, if you are not familiar with double entry accounting or standard accounting practices, nightmares may ensue. After 3 years, I can manage my small business *most* of the time without having tantrums when things don't match up. I've read a lot online and even ordered books about how to properly use the software and I still have trouble sometimes. I don't think this is the ideal solution for people who want a simple way to track money in and money out. It's probably too complicated for many small business people, including me. The reason I continue to use it is because it's one of the cheaper options and I'm used to it. I've considered switching to waveapps several times and do use that one for some of my business transactions. My advice is that if you're going to use QBO, take time to learn how to set it up and use it correctly. If you don't you may end up spending many hours trying to fix months of incorrect entries. It's kinda complicated!Cheap, accessible, pretty good phone support. Intuit also offers credit card processing which ties in pretty easily with QBO software.

Review Source: Software Advice

Anyone considering Quickbooks, please I urge you to take a quick look at 'Xero'. Xero is friendly, consistent, clear, and is a far quicker system to use. For example: changing the treatment of 3 invoices in Xero takes about 6 clicks and 20 seconds. In Quickbooks, it's about 20 clicks and takes literally 5 minutes. Horrible system, and Quickbooks should spend more money on developing a better product, instead of advertising for more clients. You're attracting clients to join a terrible product, which is regressive for the human race.The layout is sort-of ok but still not great. I'm lost. It's cheap, but then so are many of their competitors who offer far better products.

In order to properly utilize the field service software I value, I need to use a cloud-based accounting program. I have been a QB Desktop user since 2002 and greatly prefer this version over the Online version. Having said that, what I like BEST about QBO is how much easier it seems to have our accountant involved in the year end adjustments, and how seamless the process is for them to review and check accounting issues I am not sure how to manage.
