E-checks in QuickBooks desktop

I have just discovered the E-Check in "receive payments". Can someone tell me a little how this works? I think I might be interested in using it. Right now, I did an experimental sample of a payment by sending to us. How does it know which of our checking accounts to come out of or go in to? That has me a little puzzled. Can anyone help me?

E-checks in QuickBooks desktop

It's great to have you here, @Stormy1.


I'm pleased to share some resources on how receiving an e-Check payments work in QuickBooks Desktop. 


First, you need to have a QuickBooks Payments account so you'll be able to receive e-check payments. If you have an existing payments account, here's how to connect it with QuickBooks:

  1. Go to the Customer's menu.
  2. Choose Link Payment Service to Company File.
  3. Type in QuickBooks Payments User ID and Password.
  4. Select Link Service.
  5. Click Transfer.
  6. When prompted, confirm the transfer of your service by clicking Yes, transfer. 

Once completed, you'll be able to use E-checks in receiving payments from your customers.
