Hi. My bank connection keeps failing every day at the moment. I’m with mettle bank. Has anyone else had the same problem?

Welcome to the QuickBooks Community, sackville.

 

Let's perform some banking troubleshooting steps to get your bank connection issues fixed.

 

Before we start, did you receive an error once your bank connection keep on failing? Any additional information would be greatly appreciated.

 

In the meantime, let's start by updating your bank info in QuickBooks to update anything on your bank's website. Here's how:

 

  1. Sign in to your QuickBooks Online (QBO) account.
  2. Click Bookkeeping from the left menu, then select Transactions.
  3. In the Bank transactions tab, select the connected bank account (Mettle Bank) and click the pencil icon to edit.
  4. Select Edit sign-in info.
  5. Update your info as needed.

 

If you get the same result, you can check out this article for more troubleshooting steps: What to do if you get a bank error or can't download transactions in QuickBooks Online. This article is intended for the US version of QuickBooks but also applies to your region.

 

Once your bank transactions are downloaded, you can categorize them and put them into the correct accounts. For more guidance, you can read this article: Categorise and match online bank transactions in QuickBooks Online.

 

Come back to this post if you have other concerns or follow-up questions about bank connections. I'll be right here to provide further assistance.

I have a similar problem that only started a week or so ago.

 

My Mettle account connected fine. However now I keep on getting the message:

 

Your Mettle (UK) connection has expired
UK Open Banking regulation requires you to authorise your bank connections every 90 days. Reconnect now to keep your transactions coming into QuickBooks.
 
I reconnect the account and it downloads the transaction, but then when I do off the banking screen and then return to it, once again, it says that the connection has expired. All my other bank accounts are fine and expire every 90 days as per the Open Banking rules. It is just Mettle Bank that is giving me the headache.
 
I would be interested to hear if anyone else has a similar problem; as I have already said, this is a recent phenomena as up until a few weeks ago (maybe more or less, I don't recall) the Mettle Bank feed was working fine.
