FREE Custom Portal Addresses with Let’s Encrypt SSL!

You heard it right! All customers (free and paid subscribers) can now use their own domain name - and it's 100% free.

These certificates have [...]

The development work on that is now complete and you can enable this feature by going into "settings" and enable it for staff or customers (or both). (Currently this is supported in QuickBooks Desktop only.)

GoToMyAccounts Now Supports Stripe Payments!

Support for Stripe Payments has just been added to the GoToMyAccounts platform. Stripe is a great alternative to PayPal and is a great solution for low volume credit card merchants. There are no monthly fees and your customer is never taken to another site for payment processing. Transaction fees are about the same as PayPal, but there is no need to signup for a traditional merchant account or contracts. Our platform integration includes support for the Stripe testing "sandbox", so [...]

In 2010, Intuit announced a whole new paradigm in their development API offering.  They introduced IPP (Intuit Partner [...]
