ProAdvisor program

Do you know how many ProAdvisors there are in the U.S.? Are there any survey results that indicate how many QB clients they have?

M'Lou Rossie more than 1 year ago

Last we heard, about 100-thousand.

Last I heard, there are about 100-thousand in the US (and Canada), and 130-thousand Worldwide.

ProAdvisor Program

What about a cafeteria option. I support all windows QuickBooks desktop and QBO. I do not support Mac or POS. Still missed it for me.

And now they tell me, AFTER I renewed in July!

Would have loved to know about the Deluxe version prior to my renewal in July. Well, at least I can write off the entire amount for 2015. But for next year, I will insist on the Deluxe tier for renewal now that I know way in advance. Thanks for the info!

Any refunds on current membership period?

Do you know: If you just renewed in, say, June at the Premium level and you want to change to the Deluxe level, will Intuit provide a refund of the pro-rated difference?

You maybe able to change membership status

Intuit has routinely issued credits for the portion of unused memberships when making a change in your membership status (such as adding or subtracting payroll) from your membership. While we can speak specifically as to this most recent program level change, we recommend that you contact 'ProAdvisor' Support to see if you can work our the arrangements.

Change Membership Status

Absolutely not - if a downgrade. Intuit is all about Intuit making more money. I tried to drop from Premier to Deluxe and spoke to 2 diff reps. After 60 days, your're screwed.

Yes, You can change from ProAdvisor Deluxe to Premium or from Premium to Deluxe anytime!

Yes, If you are a current ProAdvisor whose membership is active and falls into any one of these following scenarios, you can contact our ProAdvisor Service & Support Care team (via chat/phone) anytime of the year and request them to help you move (& our care team will work with you and coordinate the amount adjustments accordingly) ……i.e. 1) I would like to move from ProAdvisor Program Premium membership to ProAdvisor Program Deluxe membership or 2) I would like to move from ProAdvisor Program Deluxe membership to ProAdvisor Program Premium membership.

having several certified proadvisors under one company -cost of this?

I would like to have more of my team certified as Proadvisors but think there should be an option for ProAdvisors under the same company....is this a possibility?

ProAdvisor Memberships are 'Individuals' Not Firms

The ProAdvisor Membership was designed to represent an 'individual' person, not a firm. Variances from this have created numerous problems in the eyes of many ProAdvisors. When a ProAdvisor 'certifies', it is the individual who has taken the test and earned the recognition, but in the past some firms who 'paid for the membership' attempted to retain the certification status and simply pass-it-on to someone else in the firm. Similarly some firms purchased many (20, 30, 40 memberships) and set-them up in different zip codes as a marketing ploy. We believe that the ProAdvisor Program is designed for 'one person' to 'one membership' (at that members actual physical location)...Intuit has taken steps to resolve problems of this nature, and our understanding is that these 'plays on the system' of the past will be phased out as present memberships end.

So it is doubtful that there would ever be a 'firm-wide' membership, in my way of thinking.

ProAdvisor Dual Memberships

Murph: I totally agree with the membership being for the individual not the firm. What about a person like myself however? We have a home in Florida and in Virginia. I'd love for my Virginia people to see me in that zip code area as well especially since we can all do our work from any where these days. Could that be worked out?

One or two actual working sites are OK by me

I don't have a problem with someone who has actual physical offices in more than one location and is actually at that office working out of it at times. But there have been instances of people taking out 10, 20, 30 or more ProAdvisor memberships under 1 name, then tying those to different 'mail-box' etc.type fictitious locations, solely for the purpose of pulling local business away from 'local' ProAdvisors. That's my complaint.

I do work in about 8 states on a regular basis, and spend lots of time away from my OKC office, but you don't see me posting a ProAdvisor listing in every state I work in using a $60/year PO Box, Western Union Mail-box or UPS Store address in each of those states.

I've even seen instances of where some people put different people's names on their multiple Find--a-ProAdvisor profiles, thus making it appear that those people had certifications that they did not earn. That just isn't right ! ! !

Hallelujah!

Does anyone know if you can only take advantage of this on the next renewal?

Karla Geldmacher more than 1 year ago

You can take advantage of this offer now!

Hi Karla,
You can change from ProAdvisor Deluxe to Premium or from Premium to Deluxe anytime during the year! If you are a current ProAdvisor Premium user whose membership is active and falls into any one of these following scenarios, you can contact our ProAdvisor Service & Support Care team (via chat/phone) anytime of the year and request them to help you move (& our care team will work with you and coordinate the amount adjustments accordingly) ……i.e. 1) I would like to move from ProAdvisor Program Premium membership to ProAdvisor Program Deluxe membership or 2) I would like to move from ProAdvisor Program Deluxe membership to ProAdvisor Program Premium membership.

I can see several members of my Seattle Meetup group

embracing the Deluxe version. Several have mentioned to me as a Reseller that they don't need access to Enterprise or Point of Sale because they don't support those clients. So why should they have to pay for software they will never need. For me, it's business as usual. Thanks Intuit for listening.
