I missed the cutoff for direct deposit. How do I cut a paper check?

Hi there, @ALS72.


Thank you for posting here in the Community. Let me help you cut a paper check in QuickBooks Online.


Running payroll using a paper check is quick and easy. You can temporarily turn off direct deposit and issue regular payroll to your employee.


Here's how:


  1. On the left navigation bar, click Workers.
  2. Select Employees.
  3. Press Run Payroll.
  4. Choose the direct deposit icon next to the employee's name.
  5. Select Paper check
  6. Preview and submit the rest of your payroll as usual.

I've also attached an article you can use to learn more about entering paychecks in QuickBooks: Create pay checks in online payroll.


Keep us posted if you need anything else regarding the setup. Have a great day.
