How to change a contractor's email address.

I can help you in changing the contractor's email address, @contact-wayfund-.


There are two ways to update your contractor's email address. You can update it in your QuickBooks Online (QBO) account. Also, if the email address was added through invitation, they can visit to update the email address. I can guide you on how to do it.


To update in your QBO account:

  1. Go to the Workers or Payroll menu and proceed to the Contractors tab. 
  2. Click on the name of the contractor you want to update.
  3. From the Details section, hover your mouse to the Personal Details field.
  4. Change your contractor's email address.
  5. Click Save

On the other hand, here's how  you can update it in the Intuit account page:

  1. Go to and proceed to the Sign In & Security part. 
  2. Click the Edit link beside the Email address
  3. Update the email address. 
  4. Select the Save button once you're done.
