Windows Server administrators, please check your Microsoft SLA/license agreement for End of Support dates, or use Microsoft's lifecycle lookup utility.
We are not responsible for verifying operating system compatibility/compliance for private server installations.
We are not directly compatible with computers running macOS, as all QuickBooks for Mac products do not have any interface for programs to access the company file - therefore, our integration will not function on these versions of QuickBooks.
However, many merchants will use a Windows virtualization environment, such as Boot Camp, Parallels, VirtualBox, VMWare Workstation, or other virtualization utilities to run a Windows environment on their Mac. A Windows Desktop version of QuickBooks can be installed into this environment, as well as our integration, and has been used by Mac-based merchants in the past. This virtualized environment would need to be in line with the Windows compatibility requirements above.
Our integration is designed to work on most public cloud/hosted environments which offer QuickBooks hosting. Simply mention to your server hosting provider that you'd like our Payment Terminal for QuickBooks, or contact our support team for assistance.
Some compatible hosts we've seen include:
- CloudNine Realtime
- NW Technology
- Right Networks
- Sage Next
- Summit Hosting
- Trapp Technology
Additionally, for merchants interested, we offer our own QuickBooks cloud hosting solution - contact our support team for more details.
