If you’ve already downloaded this software onto your PC, it’s important that you register your account so that you can start using it.
How to register your QuickBooks account
- Click on the QuickBooks app on your PC then navigate to the icon written “Help” and choose “Register QuickBooks”. Note that the registration option isn’t available for single-license users, meaning your license must be owned by at least two users in order to qualify.
- Choose “Begin Registration” to activate QuickBooks software to pick the registration method that’s convenient for your operating system. You can select the “Skip” option if the software suggests online-registration but you want to register your account by phone.
- Finish the web or phone-registration process by following the prompts provided. If you have an active internet connection you can complete the registration process digitally on www.Quickbooksonline.com, but if you’re directed by QuickBooks to do a phone registration then keep your product’s license number which shall be used for this particular purpose.
Other necessary information
It’s also possible to open and register all your remaining QuickBooks copies if your purchase includes multi-user licenses. The software will automatically detect your previous account registration, and launch another online sign-up process for the remaining copies. To do this, you must enter your ZIP code as well as the phone number which corresponds to the details provided during the initial QuickBooks registration.
Additionally, if your computer doesn’t show the “Register QuickBooks” feature, simply press on the F2 key to access the Product Information slide and view your registration status in real-time.
