Your Fifth Third Bank transactions won't automatically download unless the account is connected to the online banking feature in QuickBooks Online (QBO), @nfleischer.
I want to make sure I've got everything covered. You can share any error message you've encountered when downloading transactions with Fifth Third Bank. This way, I can provide the exact resolution for it.
Also, if you're not able to get the latest transactions, @jcclewis40, you may do a manual download. Here's how:
If you're still not able to get the latest transactions, you can proceed to Step 2 in this article: What to do if you see a bank error or bank transactions won’t download. This also contains other resolutions if you've encountered any specific error during the process of updating it manually.
I've added this article that you can review whenever you're ready to assess your business financials in the future: Reconcile an account in QuickBooks Online.
You're always welcome to comment below if you have other concerns or follow-up inquiries about bank transactions in QBO. I'm just around to help. Take care always.
No. None of this works. At least not in Desktop.
This appears to be an issue specific to Fifth Third Bank & Quickbooks. I have been researching for a few weeks and found no solution yet. Converting the QFX to QBO appears to work, but no transactions ever appear in the banking module. Fifth Third is useless to assist so don't waste your time. And BEWARE, if you try to sync through Quickbooks more than two times, on the third attempt Fifth Third will lock your account due to unsuccessful login attempts.
This is not the kind of service we want you to experience, Tom K.
Let's try importing the transactions through private window. There are times that the browser is full of frequently accessed page resources, causing some unusual responses. We can start by accessing your account in a private browser. This mode doesn't save your searches, visited pages, log in details, and cookies.
You can use the shortcut keys that I've listed below.
From there, you can try manually important transactions. If it works, you can go to your regular browser and clear its cache. This deletes the stored cache files and get a clean slate in the browser. If not, you can use other supported browsers.
Now that your transactions are in QuickBooks, it’s time to match and categorize them. The transactions go into your accounts after you review them.
Reach out to me whenever you have additional questions or concerns. I'm here ready to help you. Have a good one, and stay safe!
We appreciate you or joining in on the thread, Rosari024.
The browser troubleshooting steps and the workaround (manual import of bank transactions) provided by AileneA can work.
Aside from that, we can also follow Steps 1-3 to refresh the connection between your bank's website and QuickBooks Online: What to do if you get a bank error or can't download transactions in QuickBooks Online.
If you encounter a specific error message or code, you can proceed to Step 4 of the same article. From there, specific steps are provided based on the error code.
If the provided steps won't work or the error message you received is not mentioned in the article, I'd recommend giving our Customer Care Team a call. They can review your account and the details of the error message. You can reach them using this link: QuickBooks Online Support.
Let us know how this goes so we can also check what else we can do to get your bank transactions downloaded.
Hi there, @bstarr.
Currently, we have an ongoing investigation about the Fifth Third bank not updating new transactions. Rest assured that our engineers are currently investigating and working on an immediate fix.

In the meantime, you can upload the transactions manually to ensure the account is up-to-date. Download the data from your bank then map the transactions in the following supported formats or file types:
For the information and steps on importing these files, see this article: Manually upload transactions into QuickBooks Online.
I appreciate your patience as we work through this. If you have any other concerns, please don't hesitate to drop a comment below. Take care.
So it seems like it's an intermittent issue.
Today Quickbooks was able to download transactions from the bank feed but the checks were uploaded as ELECTRONIC IMAGE in description and with no check number.
Hi there, Tom K.
This isn't the kind of service I want you to experience using QuickBooks Online. However, the downloaded data in QuickBooks Online depends on what your bank shares with us and how they're posted online. With this, I suggest contacting your financial institution to get more details on why the checks were uploaded as an ELECTRONIC IMAGE in the description. They can also provide information on why the entry didn't show the check number.
Then, once the bank transactions are downloaded with the correct details, you can now categorize them and put them in the correct accounts. This is to avoid duplicate entries and to make sure your account stays accurate.
Additionally, I've included an article that'll guide you on how you can reconcile your accounts so they always match your bank and credit card statements to avoid discrepancies: Reconcile an account in QuickBooks Online.
Please know that you're always welcome to post if you have any other concerns. Wishing you and your business continued success.
