With a QuickBooks merchant account, you can see at a glance the activity between your merchant account and your bank account. You can also easily match your credit card transactions and fees with the lump sum deposits that appear on your bank statement.
Important info for American Express OnePoint merchants
Merchants who process credit cards under the American Express OnePoint program get better rates, more accurate funding data, and easier reconciliation. Please note the following changes and tips:
You should use the Make Merchant Service Deposits workflow to reconcile your credit card transactions. American Express and bankcard transactions will appear in a single batch, making it easier to match the deposits on your bank statement.
The older Make Deposits workflow will also work correctly (American Express and bankcard transactions will also appear in a single batch), so if you are more comfortable using this feature, you can still reconcile your credit card transactions correctly. But the newer Make Merchant Service Deposits feature has an updated interface and shows deposits and fees on a single window to make reconciliation easier.
Fees are always deducted using the gross fees method (fees are deducted in separate withdrawals). You cannot change this.
For easy reconciliation, all deposits and fees (discount and adjustments) for American Express transactions will appear on the Deposits and Fees tab, and will appear with MasterCard/Visa transactions.

Click this tab to see which deposits to your bank account cannot be recorded to QuickBooks because they have no matching payment record in QuickBooks.
Payments may be withheld from deposit to your bank account for various reasons. For example, if a payment is suspicious or fraud is suspected, Intuit Merchant Services will withhold that payment (and all other payments in the same deposit) until the situation is resolved. Typically, it takes 4 to 7 business days to clear a suspect payment. Usually, you will be notified directly when this happens. If you have not been notified of such an issue, please contact customer support for assistance.
Deposits made to your bank account that contain transactions without a matching payment in QuickBooks cannot be recorded. To resolve this, first try the Get Online Payments feature to update QuickBooks and your Undeposited Funds account with the latest merchant account activity. If this does not solve the problem, you will have to manually create a matching payment record in QuickBooks for each missing transaction.
Your deposits and fees are recorded in the QuickBooks accounts you specified in the Deposits & Fees Account Settings page. To specify a different account for deposits or fees, do the following:
Click the Open account settings link at the top of the window.
To change the account for deposits, click the Record bank deposits in: drop-down and select an account from the list.
To change the account for recording fees, click the Assign fees to expense account: drop-down and select an account from the list.
