Hi there, 


Thanks for joining us in the QuickBooks Community! Setting up direct deposit is so exciting. I'll help make sure you're on the right track to complete your set-up. 


If you're using Standard Payroll and you've followed all the steps for setting up direct deposit up until the test transaction, you should be ready to have your employees fill out the Direct Deposit Authorization Form. You can find the link to that form, as well as a complete list of set up instructions here: How to set up payroll direct deposit


If you're using Advanced Payroll Powered by Wagepoint, take a look at this article: Set up QuickBooks Online Advanced Payroll. This article will give you all the step-by-step instructions on how to complete your direct deposit for Advanced Payroll. Ensure you review each step to confirm that you haven't missed anything vital. 


If you've completed all the necessary steps and you're still seeing a status that says "Waiting for approval", I'd recommend getting in touch with our support team to find out what's happening. You can contact our phone support team at 855-253-1536 from Monday - Friday, 9am - 8pm EST, and Saturdays 9am - 6:30pm EST. You're also able to connect with us via social media on Facebook or Twitter, Monday - Friday, 9am - 8pm EST.
