Hello, Is someone experiencing issues with the connection between Quickbooks and BOA? I haven't been able to update QB for at least 3 days. Transactions don't show


Hi there, maria.colombo,

I can share a few pointers about the new bank connection between QuickBooks Online (QBO) and Bank of America (BOA).

QBO now connects to selected banks, including BOA, using OAuth (open standard for authentication) to easily access your financial accounts.

This new connection is an agreement between Intuit and your bank to give us your data directly. It means that you no longer have to give us your bank credentials after initial setup. Instead, you give them permission to allow QBO to access your account.

Once the OAuth connection is set up, let’s link your BOA account with QBO. Here’s how:

  1. Go to the Gear icon at the right top.
  2. Select the User Profile option.
  3. Choose the Security tab from the left menu.
  4. Under Linked Identities, verify all accounts you have to access in QBO have a check mark under the Intuit QuickBooks section.

Then, let’s manually update your bank account again so you can switch to the new connection in QBO. Here’s how:

  1. Go to the Banking from the left menu.
  2. Select Banking sub-tab.
  3. Select Update at the top right.
  4. If prompted, enter your Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) credentials.
  5. Click Continue Update.

I’ve added screenshots to show you some steps.

For more details about the new bank connection, you can check out the Bank Feeds Direct Connect FAQ article.

If it doesn’t work or you receive an error while doing an update, you can search the specific error and how to resolve it through this link: Manually update account to fix banking errors in QBO.

Don’t hesitate to comment below if you’re still experiencing connection issues between QBO and BOA to help me check if there’s an ongoing investigation. I'm always here to help you out, maria.colombo

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
