Paypal account not updated for 5 days

I can help you in getting your latest PayPal transactions, @tuffpro.


We recently had a report where PayPal transactions were not updated. However, this was already closed and tagged as resolved. Since you're still having this error, I suggest reaching out to our Customer Support. 


They have the tools to refresh your PayPal connection to get your latest transactions in a secure environment. Here's how to reach them:

  1. From your homepage, click on the Assistant button.
  2. Enter contact support on the chatbox. 
  3. Provide some insight into the error you're having and then click on I still need a human.
  4. You'll now be provided with options to reach them. 
  5. Follow the prompts to contact them. 

Here's more information on how to contact QuickBooks Self-Employed Support.


In the meantime, you can manually download the transactions from the bank. Then, upload the file to your account using a Comma-Separated Values (CSV) file. Just make sure that your CSV file is formatted correctly to import it successfully. You can use either a 3-column or 4-column format.


The 3-column template has columns for the Date, a Description of the transaction, and the Amount of the transaction. While the 4-column template has DateDescription, and both Credit and Debit column. Check this screenshot:


I'm adding this article to learn more about importing transactions in QBSE: Manually import transactions into QuickBooks Self-Employed.


Let me know if you need further guidance with your transactions. I'm always here to help. Have a wonderful day!
