Currently, there's no option to set up direct debits for customers with aba file directly in QuickBooks Online. However, you can integrate a Pinch app to setup Pinch Payments for QuickBooks. This is an Australian payments platform offering automated Direct Debit and Credit Card payments for standard and recurring invoices. Pinch allows full bank feed reconciliation to reduce admin time when receiving payments.
Here is how you can setup Pinch Payments for QuickBooks:
Register here to create a new Pinch account using your email address.
Click the “Connect to QuickBooks” button. This will sign you into your QuickBooks account.
Authorise the connection with Pinch by clicking the “Connect” button.
Enter your bank account and personal details, so that Pinch can verify your account and deposit funds. Click “Confirm”
Pinch will now sync customers and invoices with QuickBooks. The final step is to select the bank account in QuickBooks that corresponds to the BSB / Account Number entered in Step 4, your time zone and to upload a logo to be used on the payment page
Click “Finish” to complete the process.
To sign customers up for Direct Debit, click on “Payers” and then “Pre-Approvals” from the Pinch main menu.
