Intuit introduced QuickBooks Desktop Point-of-Sale more than 20 years ago to help retailers better manage their stores. However, the unique platform on which QB-POS is built requires complex maintenance and makes new feature introduction very difficult.
Consequently, Intuit has decided to discontinue QuickBooks Desktop Point-of-Sale 19.0 as of Oct. 3, 2023. In addition, there will be no future versions of QuickBooks Desktop Point-of-Sale software. Intuit also has decided it will no longer sell QuickBooks Desktop-Point-of-Sale to new customers.
As of today, Feb. 28, 2023, Intuit will begin notifying QuickBooks Desktop Point-of-Sale 19.0 customers of its decision.
In addition to the QuickBooks Desktop Point-of-Sale software being discontinued, the following connected services also will be turned off on Oct. 3, 2023:
- QuickBooks Point-of-Sale Payments
- QuickBooks Point-of-Sale Gift Card Service
- Mobile Sync
- Store Exchange
- E-commerce integration with Webgility
- Support Plans including Live Support (phone, email, chat)
- Vendor Lookup Service
Support for existing QuickBooks Desktop Point-of-Sale 19.0 customers remains unchanged.
Existing QuickBooks Desktop Point-of-Sale 19.0 customers also can purchase additional seats and hardware, and subscribe to QuickBooks Point-of-Sale Payments.
