Paypal feed not working

Paypal feed stopped working at the end of July


In the dashboard I see:

Something isn't working
Sorry, we can’t update your account. Please try updating again later.(1)

We reported this and will notify you when it's fixed


Have never received any notifications!


If I try to reconnect I get

Something unexpected happened and we couldn't connect to your bank.


Any suggestions?

Hi @tekhoi,


Let me share some steps you can do to try and get your PayPal feed working.


To ensure we don't have any issues with your browser, try these:

  1. Clear your browser's cache.
  2. Try your browser's private window:
    1. Google Chrome: Ctrl + Shift + N
    2. Mozilla Firefox: Ctrl + Shift + P
    3. Internet Explorer: Ctrl + Shift + P
    4. Safari: Command + Shift + N
  3. Try a different browser to see if it works.

Other options you have are located in this article: What to do if bank transactions won’t download. This provides you steps on how you can manually download your latest transactions and also to check your bank's website.


If you have any other questions in mind, you can always post in the comments below. I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

This seems to be the standard reply from all staff to any technical issue!


Its not related to browser cookies, if I need to manually import transactions, then I will be going to XERO instead.

I tried contacting support as suggested and got a different response.


That error message informs us that Your PayPal account is brought multicurrency transactions.
Due to multiple problems over the months with Paypal, Quickbooks stopped supporting Multicurrency transactions related to Paypal.


Looks like I need to find another accounting package now, maybe XERO
