      Fresh Mobile Payment App Helps Ring up Sales during Holiday Season

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. -- December 06, 2012

Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU) today unveiled a fresh look and feel to its
GoPayment mobile payment app, equipped with new features to address the needs
of small businesses. The enhanced GoPayment comes with new tools and features
that small businesses can use on their smartphones or tablets – helping them
to compete with bigger companies, increase sales and grow their business.
During the holiday shopping season, many small businesses face the additional
pressure of managing an increase in volume, and Intuit solutions can help them
meet the demand and create better experiences for their customers. Intuit
takes payments beyond just  a simple card reader and mobile app – GoPayment
syncs data with best-selling QuickBooks financial software, and integrates
with QuickBooks Point of Sale to provide one of the only robust mobile
point-of-sale solutions specifically designed to help the nation’s 2.8 million
small retailers manage and grow their businesses.

The new GoPayment helps small businesses:

  *Personalize transactions: Customize the GoPayment app to meet their
    specific needs and tastes. Receipts can include the store’s name, logo and
    contact information to promote their business and encourage referrals.
  *Track cash payments, apply discounts: Record cash transactions and apply
    discounts, such as Friends and Family offers, to orders.
  *Gain business insight: Manage  one items list that syncs across devices
    and users, organize items by category or favorites across multiple devices
    and users, and see all transaction details in one place.
  *Better manage employees: Control employee access to information and set
    permissions by differentiating between administrator and associate roles.
    This is increasingly important during the holidays, when small businesses
    hire seasonal employees, creating a greater need to monitor sales and be
    more secure.

Introduced in May 2009, GoPayment began as a way for small businesses on the
go to accept payments using their mobile device. Since then, it has evolved to
meet the changing needs of the market and consumers. The new GoPayment is now
available on theApp Storeor at www.itunes.com/appstore. The app works on
iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, including iOS 6 and iPhone 5.

“We are constantly improving GoPayment to ensure we meet the unique needs of
all types of small businesses,” said Chris Hylen, vice president and general
manager of Intuit Payment Solutions. “We based our enhancements to GoPayment
on customer insights and feedback. We’ve developed a new look and features to
deliver a more seamless, efficient experience while continuing to provide the
same value and benefits countless small business owners have come to trust.”
