QuickBooks SmallBiz Hack 2019


We can’t wait to see what the teams build in the Small Biz Hack! For any team wanting to implement payments to their app we know that you can get our integration and a test payment across the line in under two hours.

You should implement our payments API!

Not only will you have the chance to win a Nintendo Switch, but you will be making an app that actually has real world commercial potential. You can create an app that allows any user to connect their payment provider and get paid directly into that account. That means you can create a marketplace for potential users and customers – that’s a big deal! Apps that enable you and your customers to make money are highly relevant and likely to succeed.

Judging Criteria

We’re looking for a team who can include merchant payments in their app. There will be points for innovation and there will be big points for anyone who actually demonstrates a test payment within their app using our API.
