Metro bank

Has anyone been having any issues connecting metro bank accounts to QBSE again I’ve been trying all day

All I’m getting



Metro bank

I can tell why you're unable to connect Metro Bank to QuickBooks Self-EMployed (QBSE), Plan b logistics.


Based on your screenshot, you've received error 102. This means the bank's website is under maintenance or has server issues. It stops the online banking connection.


You can sign in to your bank's website. Then, look for any messages, notifications, or alerts. These will tell you if something isn't working.


Usually, it resolves within 24 hours. In the meantime, you can manually update the online bank connection in QuickBooks:

  1. Sign in to your QBSE account via a web browser.
  2. Click the profile ⚙ icon, then Bank accounts.
  3. Select Refresh all.

If you still see an error, wait for 2 to 3 hours and try again.


If the same issuer persists after 48 hours, I recommend contacting our QBSE Team. They can create a case to isolate this issue.


For now, you can manually upload bank transactions to keep your records accurate in the system.


Feel free to leave a comment below if you need anything else aside from the issue about the bank connection. I'm always right here to help you.

This issue is also affecting my Metro Bank account in QBO so where does this issue reside as Metro seem to think it's an Intuit problem?


The issue has been longer than 72hrs and is affecting the import of bank transactions for RTI purposes. 


Please kindly escalate with your technical support team.

Hi there, @iVoxx.

I appreciate you reaching out to us here in the Community. I can provide some clarification about the banking issue in QuickBooks Self-Employed.


You can identify the cause of the issue by checking the error code you encounter in QuickBooks. If you're getting the error 102 code, it usually means there's a problem with the bank's end.


Since the issue already exceeds 48 hours, I recommend you proceed with contacting our QuickBooks Support Team. You can use the Get a callback or Start a chat feature from the Help menu.


One of them can securely access your account and resolve your issues timely. In case you'll need the steps, here's how:


  1. Go to the Help menu at the upper right. 
  2. Choose Contact Us
  3. Enter your specific concern in the What can we help you with? box. 
  4. Click Let's talk
  5. Choose how you want to contact support.

Once fixed, I recommend checking this article to help resolve any future banking error you may encounter in QuickBooks: Enhanced Standard Feed Connection Errors.


Please let us know if you need anything else. The Community and I will be here to help you.

I'm getting the same issue and got the same "how to suck eggs" reply from support, there is nothing wrong with my business banking but QBO won't connect. This happens too often TBH.

I logged this with support today and was told they think it might be 'brexit related' - they've escalated the case to the feeds team, but as yet it's still down for me. Obviously all looks fine on the MetroBank side , can connect to their online services from their app and website with no issues. This looks very much like a QB problem to resolve.

Me too, didn't get that excuse but the support engineer was pretty clueless. I also spoke to Metrobank who said their systems are fine and any issues must be on the QBO side, all they do is support the open banking API.


I can't see what Brexit has to to with a connection to a UK bank account, sounds very suspect

Thanks Daryl.


Our accountant has also escalated to support via the business manager so hopefully they can actually investigate this.


Not sure what Brexit has to do with this as it seems isolated to Metro Bank!

A client with this issue. Metro is now saying that client should use Xero instead!
