Can I run direct deposit for multiple independant contractors at one time?

Can I run direct deposit for multiple contractors at one time? Or do i have to end each one one by one? I pay 40 independent contractors every Friday. I used to pay by check but I'd like to automate this process.

Good day, Dmataia.

 

For now, you can only pay one contractor at a time.

 

I like your idea of paying multiple contractors at the same time, though. I'll share this concern to our management team so it'll be submitted to our software engineers. This will be reviewed and might be included in future updates. 

 

I've also got you an article for future reference: Contractor direct deposit.

 

We're just here if you have more questions. Have a good day!

Please update the system to allow us to pay multiple contractors at once. I pay 18 a week. It is a pain to do them all one at a time.

Thanks for joining the conversation, @dwaltman4,

 

Thank you for letting us know about your experience with paying your contractors in QuickBooks Online. I can give you the steps on how to pay multiple contractors in QuickBooks Online.

 

If you're not enrolled to Online Bill Pay, perform these steps to create a batch payments for your contractors:

  2. Choose Pay Bills.
  3. Mark the bills you want to pay.
  4. Hit Save and print or Save and Close.

Here's an article to guide you: How to enter and pay bills

 

If you're paying bills online, follow the steps below:

  3. Mark the unpaid bills in the Pay Bills Online window.
  4. Click Review and Submit.

Please update your system to allow for paying multiple contractors at one time. I have several clients that have 20+ contractors that they pay each week. Currently, it is a cumbersome process and they are considering going back to their old payroll company.

It would be helpful to have a default (sticky key) for the account and the bank as well as a place for the hours worked and the pay period for the payment.

A list of the contractors with boxes per contractor for hours worked and pay period along with the default account and bank would be most helpful.

The contractors also need a place that they can obtain a history of their payments.

***The Online Bill Pay suggestion is not helpful and as time consuming.

Thank you for taking the time posting your suggestions in the Community page, feinbergks and marisa33. 

 

I can see how beneficial to have the ability to send multiple contractors direct deposit at once, but as mentioned by my peers, it's not currently available.


Contractor Direct Deposit for QuickBooks Online is a new feature that was just launched last year. Your suggestions let our developers know the enhancements you'd like to see in the program soon and how we can make it even better.   

 

I'll also pass your ideas to our Product Development team to see if this feature will be available for future updates. Additionally, I'm adding a link to where you can find some video tutorials for more refernce while working with QuickBooks: QuickBooks Tutorials.

 

You’re always welcome to drop by again if there's anything else I can help you with. I'll be happy to help you further.
