‘It’s a great example of the power of the ecosystem’: Intuit’s new QuickBooks card reader is about more than taking payments

QuickBooks recently introduced QuickBooks Card Reader, a new mobile payments device designed for today’s small business owners. Integrated with the QuickBooks Mobile app, QuickBooks Card Reader connects to the QuickBooks platform, enabling cross-functional capabilities like instant deposit for eligible transactions and the built-in accounting of QuickBooks.

The introduction of the card reader comes as Intuit’s QuickBooks ecosystem is growing around a new business banking product.

QuickBooks Cash, the firm’s business bank account, has been generally available for one year. Launched in beta 18 months ago, the Intuit team working on Cash has been releasing new features as it builds a fully functioning bank account. In May, the firm announced it had reached $100 million in deposits.

“It’s been an extraordinary year of learning and progress,” said Rania Succar, senior vice president, QuickBooks Money Platform. “The team has been releasing new experiences almost every other week. It’s been just a crazy fast pace. And we’re seeing higher adoption and usage and just more customer engagement as a result.”
