The #1 way CBG partners can earn residuals is to add-on QuickBooks Payments to work with your clients QB software! If you are not offering this to every client, you are leaving money on the table.

Always offer payments on every lead, customer, or order you come across. We have created some very helpful videos and blogs about merchant services. This will transform your business and income potential.

QB Payments

QuickBooks Payments residual amounts can vary depending on each type of business you setup. The amount paid depends on the rates your client gets, how often they use their account to process payments and which type of card is being used. Some accounts are AWESOME when they process a high volume of charges, some are small, and then there are some clients who set up the account but never use it. Remember you can only make residuals on the net income of the account (the gross fees less their actual expenses) on credit card transactions only.

Don’t let your clients add these on their own through their software or you will lose the residual opportunity as we will not get credit for the account. Be proactive and get them to add with your help.

So it’s extremely important that you are proactive in helping your client set up their QuickBooks Payments account and show them how easy it is to use. Otherwise they might forget about it and use another company for their payments.


QuickBooks Assisted Payroll (desktop) and Intuit Full Service Payroll IFSP (standalone). Each Payroll account does not produce huge residuals, however over time you can build your monthly residuals with each account you add. When you set someone up on assisted or Intuit Full Service Payroll (IFSP) you can have confidence that they are in compliance while at the same time you can build your monthly residuals.
