What will I need to apply?

You will need the following information about your business:
Business information (tax ID, physical business mailing address)
Owner/principal information (contact and identifying information)
Bank account information (bank account information, funding information)
Estimated credit card sales and existing credit card processing information (if applicable)

How do I apply for an Intuit Merchant Service account?
The application is easy to complete and submit. The application process takes about 5 to 10 minutes.

How long does the application-approval process take and what are the steps?

Once your application is submitted, it will be reviewed by our credit underwriting department. In most cases, you will receive a decision on your application within two business days (often quicker). We will contact you via e-mail with a decision. Occasionally, a business will be asked to supply additional information in order for us to arrive at a decision. After receipt of any additionally requested information, you will be notified of a decision within one to five additional business days.

Upon application approval, your new merchant account must be activated at the bank and throughout the credit card processing network. This takes up to two more business days. You will receive another e-mail notifying you when your account has been activated. Once your account has been activated, you can start processing credit cards in QuickBooks.
