Can a contractor receive DD to a Bluebird account by American Express?

Hello, @joe87.

 

I hope you're having a great day.

 

After doing some research about the American Express Bluebird account, I'm happy to tell you that your contractor can receive direct deposits using it. Bluebird is identical to an AMEX account, so you can pay them through DD just like they're using a normal card. If you need more information, you can check out the Bluebird website

 

Feel free to comment below if you have any other questions. Enjoy the rest of your day!

Hey Thanks.....any suggestion on setting up account.  When I attempt to set up the contractors account number and routing number, I get an error message telling me to check the account information.

Thank you for getting back to us, joe87.

 

You'll want to check with Bluebird first if they allow Intuit ACH transfer.

 

Once confirmed, follow the steps below to enter the bank account information:

  1. Click Workers on the left pane.
  2. Select Contractors.
  3. Select the contractor's name.
  4. Click Add Bank.
  5. Enter the contractor's bank account information, then click Save.

Check this article for more information: Contractor direct deposit.

 

I'll be around if you have need further assistance.

Hi @rhondarichards,

 

I'll handle this query for about a contractor direct deposit in QuickBooks Online (QBO).

 

As my peer @MaryLurleenM stated above, it's best to confirm with Bluebird if they allow Intuit ACH transfer. 

 

After that, you can refer to this article for the steps: Pay a contractor with direct deposit. It's a step by step guide on how you can set up contractors for direct deposit. 

 

Post a comment below if you have other questions about your QBO company. I'll be sure to take care of them.
