I just connected to our PayPal account. I'm an admin in QBO and I used an admin login for the PayPal account. It seemed to connect fine. The account shows in Banking. But the balance is not importing. I only see a ?. It shows 498 "In Quickbooks".
But, above the transactions, I'm seeing an error:
Thanks for sharing the exact error you've received, DotNetCoderDFW.
I'm here to help you update your PayPal account balance in QuickBooks Online.
The "Bank balance" is the balance we retrieve from PayPal. This may be delayed by a couple of hours from what you actually see on PayPal.
The "In QuickBooks balance" is the balance of the General Ledger (GL) account in QuickBooks. It consists of transactions you have added to the account in QuickBooks. When you first connect to PayPal, this may show as zero because your transactions are still in the "For Review" tab and have not yet been added to the GL account register.
Here's an article for more details: Connect to PayPal.
If the PayPal balance won't update after few days, please contact our Support Team and provide your PayPal transaction ID. We need to check further into the account to see why it's not updating and look if there are any disruptions on the connection between the two apps (QBO and PayPal).

I just signed up a new account with QBO. Imported the transactions from my new PayPal account. About 35 transactions total and I'm getting the same error. No transactions being shown although it reports that 35 transactions were imported.
I've reach out to support via phone and live chat and no fixes are available yet.
i am having this same problem also and cannot access any new Paypal info. this has been going on since last night. Also, the app on my iphone is crashing every time i try to get this info. Please help!
I spent an hour on the phone with Quickbooks this morning and they concluded that the issue was on Paypal's side. So i contacted them and they said the issue is on QBO side. Help!!!
