Hi there, barbara37.
The option to print your account number on bill payments is currently unavailable in QuickBooks Online. The program will only name of the payee, date, balance due, and amount of the transaction. You'll want to use a preprinted check when printing your bill payments. This way, you'll be able to attach your account number to the checks. You can either contact your bank or check the Intuit Market to purchase one.
Additionally, we can visit the QuickBooks App Center to find a third-party application that can print account numbers on checks. You may also follow these simple steps in searching the app:
Printing checks is quick and easy in QuickBooks Online. You can read this article to learn how to fix the print alignment for preprinted checks.
Should you have any other concerns or follow-up questions, you can always find me here. Stay safe and healthy.
The question sounds like an issue I am having: The account numbers from my VENDORS are not printing in the memo section. QBO indicates in the vendor setup window that information placed in the Account no. box will print in the memo section of a payment. Several of my payments (not all) do not print anything in the memo, therefore we have to lookup account numbers and hand write them in the memo section of the check/payment.
The answer supplied sounds like it is addressing printing the banking routing and account numbers that go to the bottom of the check. Not Vendor account numbers to be printed in the memo section of the check.
Thank you for joining the thread, @DP1965.
Let's ensure that the payment transaction includes the vendor account number when printing from QuickBooks Online (QBO).
To start, you can remove and re-enter the account number from your vendor's profile to isolate the problem. Then, print the payment again.
If you're getting the same problem, let's proceed by deleting and recreating the transaction. To delete it, click on the drop-down arrow under Action from the Transaction List, then choose Delete.

Has anyone come up with an answer for this yet? I just wrote my first checks on QBO & none of the account numbers that I entered in the vendor files printed in the memos. Looking for a solution.
Thanks for joining in on this thread, @msiegel.
At this time, there's not a field to enter the account number on checks in QuickBooks Online. I'm going to submit feedback to the Product Development Team to bring in a feature to allow this to happen. You can visit our Blog to see what's new in QuickBooks products, as well as staying updated on the news with QuickBooks.
In the meantime, you can follow my colleague's @Angelyn_T post as a workaround and troubleshoot the printing. If this doesn't work for you, then I recommend purchasing pre-printed checks or exploring the App Center for a third-party app to bring this information onto the check.
Let me know if there's anything else I can help you with by leaving me a comment below. Have a beautiful day!
Pre-printed checks? How does that help with putting the account number of the vendor we're paying in the memo field? Sorry, but your answer doesn't make sense. This isn't about the bank account number, which is, of course, already on the check.
Also, @Angelyn_T response doesn't make any sense to me. The checks are already cut and printed. There's no way to re-do the transactions again. We are talking about the vendor account number printing in the memo field of the check to the vendor, which, when you enter a new vendor, that field says 'Appears in the memo of all payments', which it is not doing.
