Very fed up and cannot receive a refund for the months of disturbance. What is wrong with QB service and which accounting software is better?

Since the 90day reauthorisation, Cooperative business bank will not stay connected to my QB account. 
Yes I reconnected on the app, phone web browser and the laptop. All times it connects to then disconnect a few hours later. 
I’ve complained to cooperative who wash their hands with it. I’ve been on the phone for hours and hours with QB agents. All of them can see the problem but cannot get it fixed. Often putting blame on the device, platform I’ve tried to reconnect with. 
I have to connect the accounts every time I use QB. I’m missing transactions through October to November which means my profit and loss is not correct. My entire financial year of book keeping is on QB, with my accountant observing. It’s all about go to [full name removed], if QB doesn’t configure a stable connection with Cooperative bank. 
I’ve requested a refund for October payment whilst the problem exist. To now have that rejected, saying it’s not within their terms of cancellation. I’m not looking to cancel. Don’t see why I’m charged for a software that is not operating correctly. 

I either need to drop QB completely and try another book keeping software that does not have connection problems with cooperative. 
Or I need to change business banks. 

It’s a ruddy nightmare and I am fed up with exhaustion to have to keep calling QB to see if they are able to solve the issue. I work as a gardener in the rain, which makes the working day even harder. Coming home cold to the bone. I am exhausted with work and do not need the extra stress with QB.

I share your pain with this, we have been having the same problem.

It's not clear whether the issue is with QB or with Coop since it's seemingly impossible to get to talk to anyone at Coop who knows anything about it. At least QB has acknowledged the problem and is working on it.

I recommend moving your bank account to Starling! After several years of Coop stress (repeated locking of our account, massive wait times to get to talk to anyone) I've made the switch and it is so much easier.
