Home page says to reactive. My account says it is active. Can only update my card through accessing my account outside of Qb. Can't get payroll to work.

my subscription says it needs to be reactivated, but my account says the payroll is active.  I have updated the card thinking that might be it, but it won't update/save the info in the QB, I have to access my account outside of QB and even updating the card, the account still says active, but when I go to process payroll, it says I have to reactivate my payroll.  when I try to do that, it says I need to update the credit card...which I already did and thus round and round in a circle I go. 


Running payroll is important to any businesses, accounting.

In your case, we'll have to check your payroll account and verify if it's already reactivated. I suggest reaching out to our payroll department for an agent to check it out for you. Here's how:

  1. Click Help inside QuickBooks.
  2. Select QuickBooks Desktop Help.
  3. In the Have a Question? window, click Contact us.
  4. Enter a brief detail about your concern, then click Continue.
  5. Select either Message an Agent or Talk to a Specialist.

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.
