How do I pay employees with direct deposit from Bank A and the other employees with direct deposit from Bank B?

Our company pays different employees from two separate bank accounts. We want to switch to direct deposit but I can't figure out how to do it.


Thank you for posting here in the Community, icchamber.

I understand that having multiple direct deposit bank accounts would be helpful for you. Let me provide you information with setting up direct deposit.

The feature to set up two different banks to pay your employees through direct deposit is still unavailable in QuickBooks Online. It will only allow you to set up one direct deposit bank account per company file. This is also to avoid confusion in the system.

Also, please take note to only use a standard checking account for your direct deposit funding account. It'll also be best to request a voided check or use Authorization provided in your account to ensure that you have the proper account and routing information from your employees.

Here's more information about setting up your bank and employees for direct deposit:

That should do it. If you have any other questions or would like me to clarify anything else in setting your direct deposit, let me know. I am always glad to help in any way I can.​ Have a wonderful week.

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.
