Thanks for coming back and updating us about your success, @Royd47. I'm glad that you've finally seen your Paypal and its transactions in the banking screen.
I also appreciate the workaround you've shared as this will surely help us and other users who experience the same.
I'm also adding an article that can help you assign, categorize, edit, and add your downloaded banking transactions. This will guide you through categorizing your downloaded transactions to make sure they're posted in QuickBooks.
Feel free to message again if you need anything else. We're always here to help you more.
