How do I switch which account my invoices get paid to?

Hi there, @dondpnp.


I can guide you with the whole process on how to switch the deposit account to your invoices in QuickBooks Self-Employed. 


Let's log in to your Merchant Service Center (MSC) to change the account. 


These are the following that you can update: 

  • Account type: checking or savings
  • Routing number
  • Account number & nickname

Please remind that QuickBooks unable to deposit payments into these types of accounts: 

  • PayPal
  • Lines of credit
  • Mutual fund accounts
  • Government accounts
  • Credit card checks
  • Routing numbers used for wire transfers
  • Paper draft accounts
  • Any non-transactional account


Once confirmed, you can now follow the steps below: 


  1. Sign in to the merchant service center.
  2. Select the Account tab, then choose Account Profile.
  3. Go to the Deposit Account Information section, then hit the Edit button. 
  4. Choose either Text or Email for the verification, then type the code. 
  5. Make all the necessary changes, then tap Submit.


After that, QuickBooks will start depositing customer payments from online invoices and other sources into the new account. For more details about the method, visit this article: Change password, security question, account email, or user ID for the merchant service center.


I'd added articles that help you handling your declined, recurring payments, and QBSE account. 



Let me know if you have follow-up questions. I'm always here to help.
