if you receive a payment--where does it show? i got an email stating that i was paid.where should it show? the merchantcenter shows it as pending.

Can I get live help with Self-Employed Intuit?


Thank you for posting here in the Community, mark.huddleston.

I can help you account your business income in QuickBooks Self-Employed.

If your QuickBooks Self-Employed and Merchants account are connected, once your clients pay the invoice through online, the system will automatically tag the invoice in QBSE as Paid.

To count it as an Income, simply tag the payment as Business Income (if the bank where the payment is received is connected to QBSE). If it's not, you can manually add the transaction. Here's how:

  1. Go to your Transactions page.
  2. Click the Add Transaction button.
  3. Enter the details for the transaction and select Business Income
  4. Click Save.

The date format should be M/D/YY. You can check this knowledge base article for more information: Add a new transaction.

However, if you want to reach to our QBSE Support Team, check this contact QuickBooks Self-Employed Support article for more information.

That should help you check your business income. Keep me posted on how it goes after trying the steps by leaving a comment below. Take care and have a great 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.
