I am trying to deposit a vendor credit. I have created it under Vendor Credit. However, when I go to deposit it, under Add Funds to This Deposit I do not have an option for Accounts Payable. QB is only allowing Bank & Credit Cards even when I try to add a new account. How do I add Accounts Payable as an option???
It's a pleasure to have you here, @GR60. Let me clarify things about depositing vendor credit.
When choosing an account, QuickBooks is only allowing Bank & Credit Cards. The bank usually records everything as a single record with one total. This is also where you want to put the money into.
That being said, choosing or creating Accounts payable is unavailable.

Is it possible to make a deposit and take it to an expense account? The only option I have is taking it to a bank or credit card which doesn't make sense since I've already indicated which bank account it is to go to. Even when I try to add a new account, the only option is a bank or credit card.

Thanks for getting back to us, GR60.
I can show you how to make a deposit to an expense account in QuickBooks Online.
If you're still unable to select the expense account, let's go ahead and run your QBO account in incognito mode. This doesn't store cache and browser history that sometimes caused issues when accessing the program.
You can use the following shortcut keys depending on your browser type:

I have opened QBO incognito and cleared my history, but still nothing but bank/cc in the Account. I've entered both a customer and a vendor in the Received From, but that does nothing either. I am in QBO Accountant, but that's not the issue, correct?
I appreciate the reply, and I'd like to take this opportunity to help you out with the vendor credit and the missing Accounts Payable option.
Just to clarify a bit about the Bank deposit function, you're able to use the Accounts Payable account under the ACCOUNT column. Expense accounts can also be used as pointed by my colleague.
By any chance, is the client under your QBO Accountant firm using the Advanced version?
We have a reported issue where users cannot see the accounts when creating a bank deposit. They are currently working to fix the function as soon as possible.
In the meantime, you'll want to use QuickBooks Online Advanced's Batch transactions function as a workaround. Here's how:
However if you don't use the Advanced version, you'll want to contact our support to have this investigated. They'll use their tools to check the system and see what's preventing you from seeing the accounts properly.
