Mac Desktop App / iTunes version ...

With the update to the FREE Mac Desktop version, do we need to physically cancel the subscription purchased through itunes to stop being charged or will it just stop because the app will no longer be available?


Hello there, donniewhite.

Let me share with you information about the QuickBooks Desktop App.

For starters, the use of the QuickBooks App is included as part of your QuickBooks Online subscription. As long as you use the same login credentials which you use in QuickBooks Online, you will not be billed for it.

If you decide to cancel your subscription, here's how:

  1. Tap Settings.
  2. Choose  iTunes & App Store.
  3. Type in your Apple ID.
  4. Tap View Apple ID.
  5. Enter your password.
  6. Choose Manage.
  7. Tap QuickBooks Online.
  8. Swipe Automatic Renewal off.

If you're unable to cancel your subscription via your iPhone or iPad, you can log in to your desktop computer instead and follow the steps below:

  1. Open iTunes on your computer.
  2. Choose Store.
  3. Sign in from the iTunes menu.
  4. Select Store.
  5. Choose View My Account.
  6. Click View Account.
  7. From the Manage Subscription screen, click QuickBooks Online.
  8. Click Off to turn off auto-renewal and cancel the subscription.

Feel free to leave a comment below if you have follow-up questions about managing your QuickBooks subscription. I am here to help.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
