Intuit keeps invalidating my license number for Quickbooks Point of Sale. I keep getting a pop-up that says I need to contact Intuit and get a new one.

This happens multiple times per year.  I have a fully-licensed copy of Quicbooks POS.  Every 3-4 months, I will get a message when I try to open the POS software, and it will say my license key is invalid and I need to contact Intuit for a new one.  I've had to do that 3 times so far.  What is going on?  Can you fix this and stop doing it please?


Hello there, tylersuard,

I'm here to ensure you're able to validate your license number and get clear details as to why the system keeps on asking you to confirm it.

We're unable to view sensitive information about your account here in the Community, so I'd recommend contacting our QuickBooks Point of Sale Support Team. They can check your activation number if it exceeds to the limit and helps you troubleshoot the software.

Please keep me posted and know that I'm just around if there's anything else you need. Don't hesitate to leave a comment below. I'm sure to get back to you as soon as I get your response.

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.
