What are you buying, access to ads and pushy sales
Do not buy this, it's a waste of your time and money, just as it was of mine.
Quickbooks starts up by default with endless popup advertisements for "enhancements" or nickling and diming as I'd call it, for example the "enhancement ability" to link to files stored on my own harddrive! Yes Quickbooks want to charge for me to add reference to files I store on my own harddisk starting from only $9.95/mo!
Even after you disable the popups there are endless "enhancement messages" hidden in the menu's of the software, selling you things such as:
- Quickbooks direct deposit ($1.50 per transfer and you can only do transfers to employees so you'll need a ACH account with your bank anyway) I even had some slimy salesguy who introduced himself as my "Quickbooks consultant" trying to assist me with doing my first year end overview in quickbooks.
- Quickbooks connection to your netbank $12/mo
- Quickbooks payroll processing (why can't a accounting program do this from the get go, it's not rocket science)
- Intuit 401K (high signup fee's and monthly maintenance. You're better off with T.Rowe Price 401K)
The quickbooks consultant and 401K guys have are now blocked from calling me after not taking no for an answer.
I don't have a habit of paying for the luxury of being bombarded by advertisements and harassments. In this case I got fooled into just that.
Never again. Go look at Peachtree Small Business Accounting instead, it's more professional and without the nickling and diming.
