Since recently, on paid invoices QBO records a deposit, but then fails to match/link the deposit with an actual bank transaction. How can this be fixed?

UPDATE: I was able to narrow down it to deposits being mapped to the old checking account, instead of new one.

 

To clarify, invoice is being marked as paid and linked to a deposit. The deposit itself isn't being linked/matched to the transactions themselves. Amounts match. This behavior began after adding a new checking account.

Let's make sure that the account of the Deposit is Accounts Receivable, jam3salexander.

 

When you've entered the Deposit as Accounts Payable, it will not link on the invoice. Let's open the deposit and verify its associated account. I'll show you how:

 

Before doing so, we'll have to delete the payment. You can do that by going to your customer's transaction list and open the payment. Then, click More, then select Delete.

 

Afterward, we'll have to change the account of the deposit. Let me guide you how:

 

  1. From the Sales tab, select Customers.
  2. Select your customer and click the deposit transaction.
  3. In the ACCOUNT column, select Accounts Receivable.
  4. Click Save and close.
  5. Select Yes.

 

Then, let's link the deposit to the invoice. You can check this article for the detailed steps to do it: Link a deposit to an invoice.

 

Don't hesitate to get back to me if there's anything that I can help you with. Keep safe!

Thanks for the reply. But there isn't a problem of linking an invoice, that works just fine. The issue is that when a customer pays via QuickBooks Payments the deposit is being recorded to a wrong checking account. And this prevents bank transactions from getting matched to these deposits. I can manually fix it by deleting the deposit, and then matching a payment to bank transaction. But, it takes too much time to do this for every transaction.
