I hope you're doing great today, @northboundcreati.


Yes, you have the option to merge the two the same accounts listed in QuickBooks Online. 


To do that:

  1. Select the Gear icon.
  2. Under Your Company, select Chart of Accounts.
  3. Go to the account you want to keep and select Edit from the drop-down in the Action column.
  4. Take note of the Name and Detail Type, and check if the Is sub-account option is marked. If it is marked, remember the parent account associated.
  5. Select Cancel to return to the Chart of Accounts.
  6. Go to the account which you don't want to use, and select Edit from the drop-down in the Action column.
  7. Change the Name and Detail Type, and mark Is subaccount as appropriate. 
  8. Select Save, then choose Yes to confirm that you want to merge the two accounts.

To give you more details about merging accounts and information in QBO, please see this link: How to merge accounts, customers, and vendors.


Once done, you can now start categorizing your transactions, so it'd be easier for you to reconcile them.
