Methods to fix QuickBooks Online Banking Error 106, 168, and 324

You can encounter these errors while uploading bank transactions into QuickBooks Online. Below we have mentioned some methods that can help you in solving QBO banking errors.

Solution 1: Manually update your Bank account

  • Open QBO and then from the left side navigational panel, click on the Banking option.
  • Unselect those accounts that you don’t want to update right now. A blue sign means that the account is selected and a grey sign means that the account is not selected. Once you select the required accounts, click on the Update button.
  • Then, QuickBooks will ask you to enter your Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) Number.
  • You will receive a notification as soon as the update is over.

You can check whether this method works or not by seeing the date of the last update and the total number of transactions. If they are changed then it means that this method works otherwise you need to use the next method.

Things you need to remember while Manual Update.

  • There are some bank and credit card companies that post transactions for download only after a day or the next morning. So, you should wait for one day and then try to update it manually.
  • Sometimes, you’ll be able to see the transactions on the bank website but you can’t download them until the bank posts them.
  • If there are any transactions are missing then we recommend you wait at least 24 hours, in case your bank has not made it available for download yet.

Solution 2: Check whether you can log in to the Bank’s website through the URL provided by the Bank for online banking or not

You need to follow every step mentioned below carefully if you want to check that you can connect to the bank through the URL that is used by the QBO for online banking.

  • Open QuickBooks and click on the Banking option from the left side navigational panel.
  • Then, select the Add Account option from the top-right corner of the screen.
  • Here you need to find the name of the financial institution or the Bank that you are using.
  • Choose your bank from the results.
  • After that, you need to click on the Bank’s URL from the top of the window.
  • Now, a new window for the bank website will open. Here you need to check whether all the functions are properly working or not.
  • To verify the website you can check the account summary, account details, and account history. If you are able to see all these things without any error then the Bank website URL is working fine.

QuickBooks only supports the connection to the bank account only if you are able to log in to your bank account through this link. Many financial institutions have multiple logins to different types of accounts, but they only release one website for the connection to QuickBooks Online.

Solution 3: Check if there are any changes in security features made by the Bank

If you are now able to log in to the bank account then this step is to check for any messages, notifications, or alerts from the bank regarding that some issues are causing the QBO Banking errors.

The message from the bank could be like, you need to update the bank login password due to security reasons or that bank has introduced a new security feature that requires some of your actions before proceeding further.

Solution 4: Wait for 24 hours and try again

If you’ve tried all the above-mentioned steps but you are still unable to download bank transactions or QuickBooks is not able to connect to your bank account then it surely means that all of this is happening due to some issues from the bank side.

We recommend you to wait at least a day and then try again. This will grant the bank time to fix the errors or issues with their server.
