POS giving message of ip data missing when running credit card. end up logging out and back into merchant acoount

This started about 2 weeks ago after I logged out of merchant account from the POS system. After I logged in I get this IP data missing error message when trying to run a credit card. I have to log out and back into the merchant account to allow the credit cards to run correctly. This occurs almost daily.


Thank you for posting, bernie.

Let me route you to the support team who can help you check what causes the error message that you've encountered.

To further isolate the issue, I suggest reaching out to our Point of Sale Payments team. They have the tools that can check your account in a safe and secure environment and verify the missing information when running a credit card.

You can check this link on how to reach them: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1164874

That should get you in the right direction. Keep me posted how the call goes. If you have any additional questions or require further clarification about your account, let me know by leaving a comment below. Have a great rest of the day.

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.
