QuickBooks POS Desktop Customers Get ready for EMV

As you are aware, the credit card industry shifted to EMV, a new standard designed to make credit transactions more secure. EMV stands for Europay, MasterCard and Visa – the developers of this standard.

Throughout this shift, Intuit has been dedicated to making the change to EMV as easy and as painless as possible, first by extending liability coverage until Intuit’s EMV solution is ready and now by offering special incentives to help QuickBooks POS customers get ready.

What you need to do 

EMV will only be supported on the latest point of sale software version, QuickBooks Point of Sale Desktop 12.0. Upgrade your software now to get ready for EMV. We know that making a change can be costly so we are offering significant discounts on POS software when you upgrade by June 1, 2016 . To order, please  shop online or call 1-800-931-2120.
