Stax vs. QuickBooks Payments (Intuit GoPayment)

If you’re a small business owner or just beginning your journey towards business ownership, finding an efficient payment processor to accept payments is important. Here we discuss Stax versus QuickBooks Online Payments (QBO) based on price and services.

Stax and Intuit GoPayments (Quickbooks Payments) both offer mobile payment solutions to better serve your payment processing needs, but which one is the better fit for your business?

Intuit GoPayment, also known as Quickbooks GoPayment, Intuit Merchant Services, or Quickbooks Payments, is a mobile payment service created by Quickbooks merchant services. The main distinction here is that Intuit GoPayment is a subsidiary mobile-only solution for QuickBooks Online (QBO) credit card processing. Primarily used by small businesses, the payment solution provides merchants with an EMV-compatible mobile credit card reader and payment app to accept debit and credit cards conveniently from a smartphone. Stax also offers mobile payment options, with flexible solutions proven to help your business grow.

So what are the differences between Stax fees and QuickBooks Payments fees? Let’s take a look.

QuickBooks Payments Fees

QuickBooks credit card processing offers two payment packages, (Pay-As-You-Go, & Monthly) but some are only available to those who use Quickbooks software. The mobile payment solution, Intuit GoPayment, works best for businesses in need of only mobile credit card processing services with average sales per transaction over $30. Any less than this per transaction and you will start to see an impact on your revenue margin.

* For these examples, we averaged a number of common interchange rates and applied 1.65% for card-present transactions and 2.15% for card-not-present purchases.
