I'm also getting the

Unexpected token < in JSON at position 0 "

Thanks for dropping by the Community and for sharing the exact error message you've got, @MaggieL.


I'm here to share some insights about the Unexpected Token error.


I have a few troubleshooting we can try to fix it. The first step I recommend is using your browser's incognito feature. This feature doesn't use the existing cache files, which makes it a good place to test if there's an issue with the browser.


Here's how:

  • Press the Ctrl Shift N (Google Chrome) keys on your keyboard.
  • Press the Ctrl Shift P (Firefox or Internet Explorer) keys on your keyboard.
  • Press Control Option (Safari) keys on your keyboard.

Once done, please try checking if the error is still showing.


If it's gone, then we can clear your browser's cache data storage. For instructions on each browser, check out this article: Clear temporary internet files and cache.


If it's still showing, please reach out to our QuickBooks Online Support Team. They have the resources and tools such as screen-sharing to help you investigate this further.


Here's how:

  1. Select the Help icon in the upper right of the screen.
  2. Choose to Contact us on the pop-up. 
  3. Enter a topic in the How can we help? field (ex. support) and choose Continue
  4. Click Get our phone number.
  5. Enter your contact information.
  6. Click Call me.


I'd appreciate if you can update me on how it goes or if you have any questions. I want to make sure this gets resolved.

I tried the incognito and it didn't work. I have not been able to upload my transactions since February 22nd.  I have always been able to download as a qbo file from Bank of America and upload to QB but since February, that just won't work for the additional cardholders on my business credit card accounts. I have absolutely no way to get these transactions into QB and I pay QB for things to work. Fix this problem already. Enough responding with lame instructions to check what to do for error messages, this problem doesn't work with any of your solutions thus far, I have clicked and tried EVERYTHING. 


Attached is a screenshot of four different times this has happened including the incognito try.
