Can't find your bank? QuickBooks works with thousands of banks. If you can't find your bank or credit card, here are some tips for finding it.

Important: Some banks require additional security steps before you can connect your account. This is managed on your bank's website. The steps for this are unique for each bank. Reach out to your bank if you need help connecting your account.

You can connect Etsy to online banking just like any other bank or credit card account. However, Etsy may break single transactions into multiple pieces. The actual sale comes into QuickBooks Self-Employed, but things like sales tax and shipping only sync once a month. You can easily find this info in your Etsy account.

Next steps: Categorise your transactions

Now that your transactions download automatically, all you have to do is approve the way QuickBooks categorises them. Learn how to categorise transactions.
