Is it possible to have the payment link on statements as it is on invoices emailed to customer?
Yes, businesses using a desktop or self-hosted version of Quickbooks Enterprise and other versions can use the custom text field in the template set up to create a link. Customers click from the statement to a self-service portal to pay all invoices. This is not available with Intuit Merchant Services, but is supported with our third party module. The link from the invoice is to pay the specific invoice, no login required.

Due to new credit card processing mandates effective October 14, 2017, business to business merchants especially need to review practices for card not present transactions. Compliance will boost profits and improve customer experience; non-compliance will increase costs, penalty fees and customer dissatisfaction. Our Quickbooks plugin for all desktop and enterprise versions (except Quickbooks Online) eases the burden of compliance, while improving customer buying experience, cash flow and profits. For business to business (B2B), we have the best solution.
Card Not Present Credit Card Processing Rules & Guidelines:
- Never store full card data on paper or digitally. If you can retrieve it, so can a criminal. Merchants are never, ever allowed to request the security code (Visa Core rule 188.8.131.52) on paper, or via digital methods such as email or text. Paper credit card authorization forms as well as digital signature forms that can be unencrypted to view sensitive cardholder data are prohibited. We fix this problem by delivering electronic invoices and empowering customers to self-store payment methods.
- When first storing a credit card, perform a Zero Dollar Authorization with the correct transaction type flag. This process is managed seamlessly in the background if supported and enabled by the payment gateway. (TIP: Some solutions perform a $1 authorization and then void the transaction- this is non-compliant.) We automate this this process in full compliance.
- Perform Cardholder Authentication. The two authentication options are card security code and 3-D secure, such as Verified by Visa. The latter is a global standard that requires the cardholder self-initiate payment, a more secure solution; Merchants using 3-D secure benefit by increased sale approvals, fraud liability shift to issuers, and for some cards, lower rates.
- When first storing a credit card, have your customer opt-in via a manual checkbox to return and cancellation policies.

If your gateway does not include this option for customer initiated checkout, including paying invoices, it’s an easy way to identify your payment gateway is not compliant with new rules yet.
- Use a payment gateway that supports new authorization rules, including stored card pre-authorization, incremental authorization, final authorization, authorization reversal, partial authorization reversal, and credit authorization.
Both the payment gateway provider and processor must support 3-D secure and zero dollar authorization.

First of three solution reviews to automate collections and boost cash flow for Quickbooks users. While Quickbooks provides plenty of data to help merchants identify outstanding accounts receivables, and then pursue collections, it’s lacking power in automating collections. Third party solutions fill this gap, and the efficiency and cost savings usually far exceed the cost of the services.
Most third party solutions have these in common:
- Payments occur outside Quickbooks, keeping the application out of scope for PA DSS certification
- PCI Compliant method to store credit cards
- The payment gateway manages any stored card data and or check data.
- Because Intuit Merchant Services does not allow any other payment gateways to be integrated, a new merchant account is required.
- ACH payments accepted
- Compatible with current versions Quickbooks Pro, Premier, Enterprise
- No double entry needed- transactions post back into Quickbooks
Our first solution includes a universal payment gateway, compatible with any merchant account, and Quickbooks integration plugin. It’s the most robust solution for omnichannel and business to business merchants.
