Unable to link our merchant account in QuickBooks - it says, "Sorry, you are not signed up for any of our Payment Services."

I am trying to email an invoice with a link for the customer to pay online. I have a merchant account and I can log into it from a browser. However, when I try to link the account in QuickBooks it says, "Sorry, you are not signed up for any of our Payment Services." How do I fix this?


It's good to see you here again with us, spentell,

Let me get the help you need to ensure that you’d able to link your Merchant account into your QuickBooks Desktop account.

To start with, if your merchant account is linked to a Desktop company file, there are things that you’ll to do first, these are:

  • You must be able to log in to the QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) company file as an Administrator, and in the QBO company file as Master Administrator.
  • Verify that you are able to access the email account used when the merchant account was set up.
  • Check the Recurring Charges set up within QBDT. These charges need to be turned off in order to avoid double-charging the customers.

To turn off recurring charges in QuickBooks Desktop, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Customers menu at the top.
  2. Choose CC Processing Activities then click Automatic Credit Billing.
  3. Choose Suspend for each recurring charge.
  4. Set up recurring charges in QuickBooks after your merchant account is linked.

For additional information, I’m attaching some helpful articles that you can check on:

However, if you’re still unable to link your Merchant account, I invite you contact our Merchant Services Support Team. They have the necessary tools to further assist you.

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.
