I use Quickbooks Self Employed. I sent my first invoice to a client on July 9. It shows it's paid, but funds never made it to my bank account. What am I missing?

The invoice was paid on the day it was sent, and Quickbooks says it was paid, which I confirmed with the client. The payment still isn't in my bank account, and it's been almost 10 days. My bank account is properly connected, because Quickbooks charges that card for my monthly fee. What is going wrong?


Let's check the turnaround time when the money arrives in your bank account, Showfolk.

The payment will reach your bank account usually on the next business day (processed up to 3:00 PM PST) if it was processed through credit card. 

It will take 2-7 business days for ACH or QuickBooks bank transfer. However, you may check with your bank because for some it takes longer. 

Since it's already beyond the time span given, I suggest contacting QuickBooks Online Payments & Merchant Service Center support

Check this link to get their phone number: https://community.intuit.com/browse/payments-contact-us. They have the tools to locate the funds in a safe and secure environment.

    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.
