Hi there, @jakebanderson321.
Welcome to the Community. Let me address your deposit concern so you can get back to business.
When something unexpected occurs in your transaction(s), a hold may be placed on the funds. Here are some common reasons for holds:

Also, credit card deposit takes 1-2 business days to reach your bank while bank transfers (ACH) can take 2-7 business days. This can also be the reason why it's still showing on hold since it hasn't been deposited to the bank. However if it exceeds the given the length of time since the payment was made, I recommend contacting the QuickBooks Payments Support Phone Team. This team is the best resource for such inquiries, as they're able to request account information to pull up your company and share sensitive information. They'll be able to further assist with determining the details of the transaction and why it is still on hold.
This should get you moving today, @jakebanderson321. Don't hesitate to let me know if I can be of additional assistance. Cheering your business to continued success.
Hello, thank you for the information. However, this doesn't really answer my question.
As I mention, the deposit has already been made to the account. That was last month, so I already worked through all of the steps with the payments/merchant services group.
I then followed up with them yesterday, and they mentioned that since it is the QBO application showing the notification even though QBO also registers and shows that the money has been deposited I should work with the QBO team. I've talked to numerous QBO assistants, and no one has an answer.
I simply want the deposits to no longer say "Deposit on hold" in the invoices screen. My account shows that the funds were deposited in the transactions. How do I change those notifications?
Hi there, @jakebanderson321.
I appreciate you providing details of your issue and how the call went. I can help you out with this and resolve the deposit saying "Deposit on hold".
In order for the notification to update, you will have to disconnect the invoice from its payment and delete it. After that, re-create the deleted invoice (don't send it to Payments), and link it back to the original payment.
That should re-establish the recording of your transactions in QuickBooks. I'm sure that after following the steps above, you won't see the "Deposit on hold" on the invoices screen.
Keep me posted if you have follow up concerns about QBO. I'd be happy to help you more. Wishing you all the best.
Hello, this did not work. I recreated it and it immediately re-stated that the new invoice was on hold.
How do I fix this? I feel like this shouldn't be that hard.
Thanks for your responds. I'm here to guide you to the right support so you can get the help you need.

Hello, thank you for the insight. I actually have already gone through 3 separate conversations (2 with screen shares) regarding this issue. No one has had the answer, which is part of the reason I initially posted on here. I've tried both the Payments and QBO help center.
I appreciate all of your efforts for trying to resolve this issue. Allow me to join this thread and provide additional clarification regarding the deposit on hold.

OK, this problem was in January. Now it is October 2019. I have the same problem, too. Can you please let us in on the secret regarding how to delete these inaccurate, annoying, false, bad-accounting notices about "DEPOSITS ON HOLD" by Merchant Services that are not on hold? Remember, QUICKBOOKS+MERCHANT SERVICES put it there. This is your service. This is not my mistake.
Regarding the last comment, it would make no sense to respond as in the response to Jake above, by saying, "get in touch with our Customer Care Team again. Doing this will ensure you've been added to the product issue contact list." That was 9 months ago.
If 9 months have gone by, and there is still no answer posted here by Quickbooks, getting on a list clearly does nothing but waste the customer's time. It would not be nice to put customers through the time-consuming process of making phone calls to get on lists that STILL have not provided their own people at Quickbooks with a helpful answer after 9 months.
PLEASE understand that I am trying to work with you, but being that this thread popped up as the top result when I Googled this problem, there really should be a solution posted here by now. It has been 9 months, after all.
Like Jake above, I had a held deposit. I cleared up the issue. The deposit was made. Then I made a deposit in Quickbooks to account for this. Why does QBO still say deposit on hold?
Is there anything to do to clear this up?
Hello there, Peter292,
Once the deposit is posted, it should also reflect on your QuickBooks account. If the deposit is still showing as deposit on hold, I recommend contacting our QuickBooks support.

Let me know if there's anything else I can help you with.
Thanks for the polite boilerplate response. Did you read about Jake's 3 calls above? His two sessions of screenshares? Jake made it quite clear above that calling tech support is an exercise in frustration and fruitlessness.
I just got an automated "Kudos" via email from this system, apparently triggered by new people in this community who seem to be experiencing this problem. Quickbooks just "awarded" me as a "Level 2" community member because people apparently appreciate my spelling out the problem here. But really, I am not looking for "Kudos" and "Community Member Awards."
I am looking for Intuit and Quickbooks to fix this problem, or tell me who can fix this problem. Mary, it is not helpful to send me back a fourth time to the same support-people who were unsuccessful 3 times previously. Can you or anyone over there provide the help that one would expect from a reputable company such as yours?
Thank you for providing detailed information on this concern.
This isn't the impression I want to leave you with. It is my goal to ensure you receive the best support possible. As of right now, this is a known issue. We would need you to call into support to open a ticket so this can be documented for an investigation. Once the issue is pressed, you'll receive email updates about the concern that will include workarounds for a resolve.

If you have further questions or concerns, feel free to reach back out. Take care, and have a great rest of your day!
I am having the same issue and can't get help from QBO or chat or anyone! Dang this is frustrating. Seems like it should be such an easy problem to fix. (having to resend because I used a bad word! LOL I didn't know dam was a bad word!
