I just got set up with Square to accept credit cards and I'd like a program that I can run on my laptop, but also access when I'm in the field working if a customer has a question about whatever.
Quickbooks is the only program I know of, and only because I've heard about it here. I have no idea what the capabilities of this program are. I'm on their website and see that you can choose to just use it online for around 12 bucks a month. that's only about 150 a year to do all my book keeping. I certainly think that's worth it depending on what the features are.
Can anybody give me a basic rundown on the pros and cons of Quickbooks are? Will it allow me to track expenses, income, create invoices, and run reports & help me analyze my business? Also, can Square link into Quickbooks somehow and automatically tell me who's paid and who hasn't, or are there other options to do this or must it be done manually?
Thanks in advance
Quick books is very easy to use and understand it will do allow you to do all your expenses and invoices, payroll, reports, budgets, estimates, recieve customer payments by check, online, credit cards, cash. I'm not familiar with Square Link. I run my credit card transactions through my credit card terminal and then enter them in QB manually similiar to how I would with a check. I don't use the online version, but I'm thinking about it. Especially if I don't have to purchase updated versions anymore. Is the $12 month for any limited customers or transactions?
