This Is What Reviews Say About QuickBooks’ Customer Service

Only users on the highest plans have access to QuickBooks’ top support package. Everyone else deals with longer-than-average wait times whenever they need help.

“I called in about this and they told me a number of things to do, but it wasn’t solved, clearly, the first time, nor the second, nor the third, nor the fourth. They made me try everything and jump through every hoop.”

“There is no clear number to call and they always push you back to online questions even when it is evident that you want to speak to someone due to dissatisfaction.”

“Don’t use them, when a company denies you a service for no reason, or none that they can explain, they don’t deserve to have your business.”

“Support is hit-or-miss—you can pay extra for Priority Circle, and might get someone good, but if not, you’re out of luck.”

“Support is absolutely terrible. Don’t expect anything to happen if you file a complaint.”

“Support is almost nonexistent. It is terrible, the reps keep you on hold for long periods of time if they answer at all.”
