The problem because the Merchant Service, through which QuickBooks Payments are facilitated, is quite as diverse and as layered as QuickBooks itself.

At the time of processing payments, the Merchant Service is not able to load properly in QuickBooks and it prompts an unrecoverable error and crashes.
