How to Reconnect Bank Feeds in QuickBooks Online

May 31, 2024

Maintaining an accurate and up-to-date record of your financial transactions is crucial for any business. QuickBooks Online offers a convenient way to link your bank accounts and credit cards, enabling automatic transaction imports. However, there might be instances where your bank feed disconnects due to changes in bank login credentials, security updates, or other technical issues. Reconnecting your bank feeds in QuickBooks Online is essential to ensure seamless financial management. This guide will walk you through the steps to reconnect your bank feeds effectively.

Step 1: Log in to QuickBooks Online

First, log in to your QuickBooks Online account using your credentials. Ensure you have the necessary administrative privileges to make changes to the bank feeds.

Step 2: Navigate to the Banking Section

Once logged in, go to the Banking menu. You can find this on the left-hand side panel of your QuickBooks Online dashboard. Click on Banking, and you will be directed to the Banking page, where all your linked accounts are listed.

Step 3: Locate the Disconnected Account

On the Banking page, identify the account that has been disconnected. You will see a notification or an error message indicating that the connection has been lost. Click on the Link Account button next to the disconnected account.

Step 4: Re-enter Your Bank Credentials

After clicking on the Link Account button, you will be prompted to enter your bank login credentials. This includes your username and password associated with your bank account. Ensure that you have the correct login information to avoid any errors.

Step 5: Reconnect Your Account

Once you have entered your bank credentials, QuickBooks Online will attempt to reconnect to your bank. This process might take a few minutes. If your credentials are correct, the connection should be re-established successfully. You will see a confirmation message indicating that your bank feed has been reconnected.

Step 6: Verify and Update Transactions

After reconnecting your bank feed, it is essential to verify and update your transactions. QuickBooks Online will start importing the latest transactions from your bank account. Review these transactions to ensure that they are correctly categorized and matched with your existing records.
