Good morning, @accountspayable5.
I hope you're enjoying this lovely day so far.
Great news, changing your bank account for direct deposits is easy. Allow me to show you how to accomplish this. Below I've included the steps.
First, you'll want to add your new bank account in the chart of accounts.
To do this:
1. Open the Lists menu and choose Chart of Accounts.
2. On the Accounts drop-down menu at the bottom, click New.
3. You'll choose Bank for the account type and select Continue.
4. Fill in the required information on the next screen.
5. Hit Save & Close once you're finished.
Next, you'll update the bank info in Payroll now that your new bank account is ready to go.
1. Open the Account/Billing Information screen from the Employees menu at the top.
2. Sign in using your Intuit Account login.
3. After you've signed in, you'll go to the Payroll Info section. Under Direct Deposit Bank Account, click Edit.
4. Enter the payroll PIN then hit Continue.
5. Enter your new bank account details, and then click Update.
6. Wait for the confirmation. Then you'll select Close.
Now that we've updated the bank info, you'll want to update the account that direct deposit paychecks and fees will post to. Here's how to do this:
1. Open the Employees menu at the top. Choose Send Payroll Data.
2. On the Send/Receive Data window, hit Preferences.
3. Select the new bank account from the drop-down list in the Account Preferences.
4. Click OK to save the changes.
5. Hit Close on the Send/Receive Data window.

We are about to switch banks.
My questions is; can we maintain both Banks within our QuickBooks online? We would like to have both accounts active while we transition from one bank to the other to ensure all checks clear and direct payments are switched over. Is this possible? If so, please explain in detail.
(We do not perform payroll through QB, so not an issue.)
We are concerned about deposits, payments, direct deposits, ACH, etc.
As long as the bank won't disable the connection, that'll remain active in your account. Also, if you'll not going to inactivate the bank from the Chart of Accounts.

This does not help me at all.
We do not subscribe to Payroll.
We want to have access to 2 different banks at the same time to ensure all pay outs clear before closing the old bank account.
Is this possible?
If so, please tell me how.
Hey there, @Paramount1.
Thanks for reaching back out to the Community. I can provide you with some insight into having two bank accounts connected in QuickBooks Online. If you mean connected through the Banking tab, then yes. You're able to have more than one bank account connected. All you need to do is add your financial institution's information. Here's how:
Once all the payout clears in the old account, you can disconnect the old account.
If you use our QuickBooks Payments (Merchant Services) feature, then check out this link to help you change the bank information within the Payments settings.
I'm only a post away if you have any more questions. Take care!
