  • I wanted to use Quickbooks for my company. I was given the WINDOWS software download file (I have a Mac), and then called customer service to correct the mistake. After service dial-a-number prompts, I was finally connected to someone who patched on to my computer via He took a look at my specs: version, memory, etc and provided me the following instructions:
    - Upgrade my computer to necessary version (done)
    - Be best to send me the software to install. (shipped)

    To my dismay, he sent me a WINDOWS CD. My computer is a MAC and does not have a disk drive. Something he should have know given he's tour around my computer, and the fact that he was a MAC technician.

    I then call customer service again was transferred from WINDOWS to MAC rep, to a sales rep, finally to a technician... but promptly disconnected once connected.

    I call again. Several dial-in's later, I get to a person. She soon discovers that I do not have enough memory for the newest version and recommends the ONLINE version... transfer to ONLINE sales.

    That is when I gave up, asked for a refund and utilizing another software tool where customer service is a priority.

  • besides having the most ignorant customer service reps, qbo is the most time consuming accounting i have ever used. the newest format took away defaults that made it more streamlined and user friendly and caused more and more unnessesary time consumption...i HATE this version. going to go back to QB desktop and do things the right way!

  • Terrible Customer Service. I Was On The Phone Dealing With Them For More Than A Week..nothing Solved And They Couln't Even Provide Their Email Address Correctly. Never Buy Their Product Again.

  • This company has crossed the line in dishonesty. After being assured at the time of purchase that the 2011 edition would be supported and not cancelled or lose support. My option now is pay again for 2014 or on May 31... payroll will be unaccessable. After training costs and purchase price...they are a bunch of lying thieves. I would never recommend Quick Books to anyone under any circumstance.

  • Why is my life at the mercy of a limited English speaking call center in the Philippines? I have to spell and re-spell words and numbers again and again until they get it right. When they cannot answer they "transfer" you to another department which means they hang up. I have not been rude or impatient which will get me nowhere. All I am trying to do is legitimately transfer a license. The form you request to be completed does not transmit. I was asked to print it and email it. Receipt was acknowledged, but issue still has not been resolved. Have spent a week calling and have to start from scratch every time!
    There is a severe lack of expertise and communication and something should be done about it.
    Are the percentage of complaints too little to worry about?

  • almost impossible to get any technical support over the phone (unless you pay of-course special fees)
    the worst customer service I have ever encountered.
    need advice for other software

  • Intuit support is abysmal. Their India call center can barely speak English, let alone communicate effectively regarding software support or accounting support. Our current 2013 version can't run the payroll updates due to some ini file issue in the software but only half of the service agents even understand it is a problem. I am 2.5 hours in. Who do I send my bill to at Intuit for wasting my time.

  • This is the worst company that I have ever had to deal with bar none. Intuit cares absolutely nothing about the customer.

    judgejudyt 3/17/14 12:47PM
  • One of the worst companies...Period. Forget about ANY customer support. Forget about a company having any ethics.

    While use of online access through intuit products was free, banks are required to pay a licensing fee to Intuit if they wish to allow their customers the ability to download financial data in the Quickbooks format.

    In 2007, Intuit lobbied to make sure taxpayers cannot electronically file their tax returns directly to the IRS by negotiating a deal that has the IRS promising not to set up its own Web portal for e-filing.

    In 2009, the Los Angeles Times reported that Intuit spent nearly $2 million in political contributions to eliminate free online state tax filing for low income residents in California.

  • I have a big problem with Intuit Canada this is the second year that I purchased quick books myself and then February 8/14 come along and they want to charge me for quickbooks pro 2014 when I have alresdy purchased it from my local staples store for cheaper than they are trying to push in my face. this is the second year that they have done this to me and I still haven't got the charges reversed last year when the person on the phone told me it was going to be taken care of and visa has been fighting with then and I have sent registered mail to them last year to stop using my visa and they use it again this year,there is no automatic renewal when I purchase quickbooks from a outside suppler, I have sent you another registered letter and since I live in Edmonton where you office is im sending this letter to the Gobal news, because you should be able to see I didn't purchase from you and you didn't even send me a disc this year or last year but you want the money from me what a joke

  • Called the international helpline and they don't know how to handle multi currency bank accounts.

    Called the UK helpline and after 18 minutes wait Greg helpfully hung up on me before I even got the first sentence out of my mouth.

    Unless you have a simple business and know what you are doing DO NOT use this software

  • Horrible Customer support. It's hard to get help if you need it, and when you do they don't speak English. QB's online service is a complete waste of money for MAC users. Checks don't print correctly, and lots of connection issues. You need to install a different browser (Chrome) to operate with LESS problems, than Safari.

    BGPX 2/3/14 4:06PM
  • This is by far the absolute WORST "Customer Service / Support" system I have ever had to deal with !!!!
    Initially attempting to activate our purchased PAYROLL subscription took over 1 hour.
    Today I have been trying to confirm the order status for checks and attempting to clarify "WHY" we are unable to access our "Account" - not accepting User Id and Password.
    I HAVE BEEN ON THE PHONE FOR OVER 4 HOURS - keep getting transferred back and forth with no resolution to the simple request - "Why can't I access my account?"
    If I had know this, I would never have considered the purchase of QUICKBOOKS !!

    TOWN OF MIDDLE INLET 1/28/14 2:46PM
  • I called today with two very simple questions and the rep I got was only concerned with upgrading my software. I was already prepared to make the change as my business has changed but felt uncomfortable with how aggresive he became to "get my card". He repeated that so often where it seemed shady "just give me your card". I had to let him go since my 3 kids got home and it was nearing dinner. He became more aggresive and told me to give him my card number and he will do everything. Unfortunately, I had to hang up on him since he didn't stop talking about getting my card information. In the hour that passed, he called me 6 times !!!!!! I didn't pick up since I was in the middle of dinner. I couldn't believe it. This is harassment and the worst customer service I have experienced. I will not buy another product from quickbooks. Perhaps I'll reconsider when they restructure their customer service. Terrible.

  • I have to say that QuickBooks Enterprise 2014 is quite possibly the worst accounting software that I have encountered in quite some time! It does NOT work in the server/multi-user environment. Do NOT purchase this software if you have more that one user at any time as it will not work consistently!!!

  • It took me almost thirty minutes to get to the point that I did not have to put my phone number in again (7 times) as requested and 4 different times it ask for my EIN. Now I am on hold for 15 minutes until the next representative is available. Let's see if that really happens. Of course I am not busy at all!

  • Impossible to cancel payroll easily 45 minutes on hold. I did get a direct number if it helps anyone else I spoke with Andrew after going through two Phillipino operators who could only apologize and say they were trying to reach a "specialist". I finally insisted that the last operator come back on the line each minute until the "specialist" was available. I was then connected within a minute.

    Bob 1/13/14 10:14AM
  • I need to do my payroll reports and W-2s for year end today and the program does not work. I have purchased the 2013 payroll update, updated my program and it suggests that they may have it by January 25. I called and they could not help me today. I think it is fraudulent to sell a program that doesn't work. Very Bad Business to do business with.

    Anonymous 1/12/14 5:35PM
  • 23 minutes on hold. Representative basically just read from her script and no matter what I said he repeated from the script. She made no sense. Answers not on point.

    All that, not to mention the language barrier. When I explained that I was not only not understanding her content, but that I was also struggling with her English and asked to speak to a "native" English speaker, she hung up on me. WORTHLESS. They are billing me for support for a product I don't even have!

    And she tries to defend it!!

  • I need to know if quickbooks item number has the capability to do payrrol?

    Anonymous 1/7/14 7:14PM
  • Quick books on line have a glitch that switched my billing to my purchase price causing me to invoice at my cost for 2 months. After finding this issue it took several calls for them to even escalate this to an issue worth their time. After which following their instructions have left me with thousands of unbilled items which are preventing me from turning on automatic billing. I have lost 10's of thousands of dollars because of this issue and per quick books support its my fault. even though this issue was reported by at least 25 other company's.I am going to pursue a class-action law suit to try and re coop lost income and especially for loss of productivity.

    If this is something you have experiences please email me

  • Your customer service for payroll sucks. They are not very literate and apparently are not from the US. Time to switch software. Already did that on the tax side!!

  • I have been trying to talk with someone all day about a charge on my credit card on an item that i didn't order and no one ever calls back even though the recording says it will. This is the worst customer service I have ever heard or received. This is a negative and I will contact the BBB about getting the charge off my card. If you feel you want at this time to help me contact me . Joye

  • Have a charge on credit card statement. Not showing in my history. Been 45 minutes trying to get a "live" person to find out what charge is for. The customer service at Intuit gets a zero from me. Absolutely Ridiculous

  • I am a bookkeeper and I've been using quickbooks for over a decade. I have always wanted a MAC but was afraid to switch to the quickbooks version for Mac, as I was told negative comments and as any bookkeeper my reports and ease of entering information is important to me. For my birthday, I was given a mac and the mac version of quickbooks. It took me 5 minutes to get used to it. It is the SAME. Looks the same, and honestly, I am THRILLED with the product. I honestly and completely recommend this product. There is NO reason why one wouldn't switch.

  • If you want a service tech with knowledge the only way to get it is to sign up for pro-advisor. When you sign up they include the payroll and latest version of quickbooks. Problems are usually solved in one call with a person from our country. The also bundle in other free services with your pro-advisor subscription: remote entry,merchant services I can not think of the others now but it is worth the cost to have the service, if I have a client having trouble with qb I can call and get a three way calling and they too get american service techs with qb knowledge.

  • Just got off the phone with Sara who was very helpful and quite apologetic for the shortcomings in the newest version (12.0) of Enterprise. However, "Ardie" with whom I spoke before Sara was very difficult to understand . . . and I'm used to interpreting heavy accents! I finally had to ask him to spell his name after I'd had him repeat it 3 times. So, I guess I experienced the good and the bad all in one call. I surely don't like the fact that they told me that mine was a "known issue" (and a pretty major one at that) and a fix was coming (though they didn't know when for sure), but Sara did a good job of telling me that basically they couldn't help me yet.

  • I had an outstanding experience with support person Elijah. I had no idea that my request was so involved, but Elijah made me feel so at ease and confident of his ability to solve the issue. He stayed with me the entire time and was competent, polite and very professional. People complain all the time about software companies which is why I want to take this opportunity to brag about the excellent results that I had with my rep. Elijah. Thank you Quickbooks....I continue to be a very happy customer.
