I appreciate you joining the thread about connecting the BMO Harries Bank with QuickBooks Online. Allow me to help provide information on this.
I've doubled-check the system, and we haven't received any reported issues from other users specific to connecting the bank. Can you share with me if you encounter any error message when attempting to download bank transactions?
I want to make sure you'll get the support you need to get back on track. Since you're unable to sync your BMO Harris bank for almost six months already, I recommend reaching out to our QuickBooks Support Specialists this time.
Please reach them by following these steps:
If you want to upload bank transactions manually, you can use the Web Connect feature in the meantime. I'm attaching the support articles I found helpful for you:
As always, get back to me if you need additional help or if you have further questions with connecting the bank. The Community has your back.
I'm getting error code 102. I have already reached out to the QB support system and they said the error was on the BMO Harris Bank side. I called BMO Harris Bank and they said they are "working on it".
Thank you for reaching to your bank's customer service, @mikaelmir.
Our engineers are working with your bank to fix this promptly. We'll be sure to update you once we receive improvements or progress from them. We advise checking your email from time to time.
I appreciate your patience. Let me know if I can be of additional assistance. Best wishes!
Has this been resolved? I just spoke to someone on the BMO technical support team and she said that there is a connection between BMO and QB but I can't seem to make it work. I had received a message from QB that I needed a PIN but the person said that a PIN was not required.
The investigation of BMO Harris Bank has been resolved for QuickBooks Online Bank Feeds, @Willie Nebraska.
You can re-establish the connection between your Financial Institution and QuickBooks Online (QBO) by manually updating your bank account.
Let me show you how:
The manual update option helps the connection to sync up again.
Also, if you're encountering any bank errors, refer to this article for more troubleshooting options: Fix specific banking errors.
We appreciate your patience as we work through this. If there's anything else I can do for you, please let me know. I'll be around to help.
I spoke with someone who was in charge of the connections at BMO (probably 5 months ago?) and they didn't think Harris would ever connect automatically to QBO and it was to do with incompatibility in their platforms. I have been updating manually since they made the change.
There’s no specific error they’ve mentioned in this thread, @kristinatw.
Allow me to provide some information that can help you figure out what ways to receive their payment.
In QuickBooks Online, there are few alternatives to get paid. Aside from credit cards, you can select other payment methods available such as cash, check, and even PayPal. If you’ve processed the transaction online, you can choose which method is more convenient for you as a workaround. But be sure to record the payment in the system so the invoice will tag as paid.
Receiving payments in QuickBooks Online helps maintain an accurate accounts receivable balance. Check out these articles on how to accept fees in QBO:
You can also let your customer try once more to pay you online using the BMO Bank Harris card. This way, we can determine the exact issue that occurs if they’re unable to process the payment online. Otherwise, you may consider the options I’ve provided to get this settled.
Don’t hesitate to reach out again if you have other concerns. I’m determined to help and take care of them for you.
