If you use Merchant Account Services to receive customer payments by credit card, you'll want to add a cash account to record the money your customer pays you on the same day you receive it. That way, when your bank deposits the payment amount a few days later, you'll be able to match up the record of the payment with the actual payment.
- Click the Add Account icon on the top right of the Account Bar.
- Click Cash.
- When Quicken asks for the Account Name/Nickname, enter a meaningful name, such as Undeposited Funds.
- When you get to the starting date and opening balance dialog, enter today's date and the opening balance if there is one. If there is no current balance, enter zero.
