Thanks for dropping by here in the Community, @68stratford.
In addition to what @john-pero mentioned above, I would like to provide further insights. The way you enter the deposit depends on how it shows on your actual bank statement.
If the payments are showing as a lump sum on your bank, you need to record the same way in QuickBooks. This way, your transactions will match correctly during the reconciliation in QuickBooks.
Additionally, I recommend the following resource which has video tutorials to help a user learn about making deposits, and how to manage them: Record and make Bank Deposits in QuickBooks Online.
Let me know in the comment section below if you have any other questions or concerns. I'll be here to help. Have a great day ahead.
