Let’s work together and get your bank account added to QuickBooks, @ mmcin2.

I understand it can get frustrating to receive bank connectivity errors at repeated occurrences. You’ll be prompted with Error 103 when the login credentials you used in connecting your bank with QuickBooks don’t match with your bank. Let’s ensure to type your bank’s username and password manually instead of using the copy and paste function or your browser’s auto-fill feature.

To fix error 103, here’s how:

1.Log in to your bank’s website.

  • If you’re able to login successfully, kindly take note of the exact username and password you used.
  • If there are any error prompts on it, I’d suggest contacting your bank’s customer care team for further assistance in checking on it.

2. Access your QuickBooks Online account.

3.Reconnect your bank account.

  1. Click the Banking menu.
  2. Select Banking.
  3. Click Add Account.
  4. In the Search field, enter the bank's URL or name and select your bank.
  5. Enter your bank’s login credentials in QuickBooks manually.
  6. If prompted, enter your Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) credentials.
  7. Click Continue.

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.
