Thank you for the details, Nicole.

 

Let's try to manually update your Paypal connection using a private window. This is to check if this is a browser-related issue.

 

Use the appropriate shortcut for the browser you're using:

 

  • Google Chrome: press CTRL + Shift + N
  • Mozilla Firefox: press CTRL + Shift + P
  • Internet Explorer: press CTRL + Shift + P
  • Safari: press Command + Shift + N

Here's how to update the connection:

  1. Click Banking on the left pane.
  2. On the Banking page, select Update.
  3. If prompted, enter your Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) credentials and select Continue update.

You can check this article if you encounter a bank error: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1769041.

 

If it works on a private window, go back to the regular browser, and clear the cache to boost the browser's performance: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1884697. You can also try to use a different browser.

 

If the same error persists, I recommend contacting our QuickBooks support to check the error further. Here's how:

 

  1. Click the Help icon.
  2. Click Contact us.
  3. Enter the error you're getting, then click Let's talk.
  4. Select Start an email.

I appreciate your patience on this. Please let me know if you need anything else.

no this didn't help at all.  and I called Paypal and they said there is no problem on their end.   it's quickbooks issue, but I can't get on the phone with quickbooks - can't find a help number.  i think i need to just delete this paypal account and then re-add it. can you tell me how to delete the paypal account?

Thank you for getting back to me, Nicole.

Disconnecting an account due to bank error might cause duplicates once you reconnect it. I recommend contacting our support first to check further.

If you want to proceed, follow these steps to disconnect Paypal:

1.Click Banking on the left pane, then Banking.
2. In the Account window, select Disconnect this account on save.
3. Select Save and close.
