It is now more than a week that QB and Standard Bank is not communicating. I get an error 101 and when I go to the pencil to do it manually, I get the message to try again in a few hours.
Is there anyone else that have the same problem.
I appreciate you for reaching out to us here in the Community. I'm here to share some updates about this unexpected behavior in QuickBooks Online.
Our Product Engineers received similar reports from other users experiencing the same error when updating Standard bank in the system. At this moment, we aren't able to provide a specific timeframe for the resolution.
Rest assured, the engineers are doing their best to fix and prevent this from happening again. The only workaround is to import bank transactions manually while waiting for the permanent fix.
I also recommend contacting our QuickBooks Online Support Team to add you to our list of affected users. This way, you can receive live email updates about this issue.
Our Customer Support Team is available from 6 AM - 6 PM PT (Monday - Friday) and 6 AM - 3 PM (Saturday). To contact them, you can follow the below steps:

Drop me a comment below if there's anything else I can help you with regarding downloading bank transactions. Take care.
Hi Deon, has QB resolved this for you yet?
I haven't been able to connect my Standard Bank accounts and download transactions since 5 July! My Standard bank account is active and I have no problems logging into it. I've done everything I can - try different browser, cleared cache and cookie history, tried logging in incognito browser etc etc. Also disconnected the bank account and tried to reconnect but obviously cant, so cant even download the entries and import manually as the bank account isnt reflecting in Quickbooks anymore.
Getting desperate as have a vat return due next week Friday!
Very frustrated with Quickbooks. As an accountant I have clients on quite a few of the online software options available and do not experience this with any of the other options.
I appreciate the steps you've done to fix this issue, LaurenAlgar.
That said, I'd recommend reaching out to our Phone Support team so an agent can take a look at your account and verify this further. You can get in touch with one of our agents through the Help icon.
Once you're able to connect your bank account, you're good to categorise the items. Here's an article as your guide: Review the downloaded transactions.
Keep me posted if there's anything that I can help with. Keep safe!

HI, I am still experiencing issues with connecting to Standard Bank SA. The bank says the problem is not on their side. Can someone please give an idea of when this problem is going to be sorted out??? It's been nearly a month now.
