Bank feed matching can be time-consuming, even for payments processed using QuickBooks. This is especially true when there are multiple transactions for the same amount on the same day. It is many times tedious work to make certain you get the payments matched correctly.

But now, starting in mid-July, Intuit QuickBooks is introducing Auto-match for QuickBooks Payments. This feature will provide an automatic high-confidence match for payments processed by QuickBooks based upon a unique ID, the amount and date. 

It means you will no longer have to spend time matching payments—QuickBooks will match them for you.

To give you a little better explanation of how this new process will work:

  • QuickBooks will make a match when it recognizes a QuickBooks Payment and a corresponding deposit based on three determining factors: unique ID, the deposit amount and date.
  • If the transaction was processed through QuickBooks Payments, QuickBooks will know which payment matches with a corresponding deposit—even if two transactions are for the same amount. This is because QuickBooks is using all three of the determining factors described above.
  • QuickBooks automatically matches transactions only when confident it is right, but that does not mean you cannot undo a transaction that QuickBooks has already matched. You will easily identify when a transaction has been automatically matched when Automatic-match appears under the Rule Column in your categorized transactions.

As long as your customers are paying via QuickBooks Payments, Intuit QuickBooks will record and match your payments for you. Just think of the time and effort it will save.
