Using PFM Software
Problem: I am trying to download transactions, but they do not show up in the register.
Solution: Check to see whether you can view the transaction in Fifth Third Internet Banking and Bill Payment. If not, try running an update. You may have downloaded the transaction already. If you've already downloaded the transaction and manually deleted it, you will have to reenter the transaction manually in Quicken or QuickBooks in order for it to display in the register.
Problem: I downloaded my transactions, but the transactions showed up in the wrong account.
Solution: Double-check your account numbers against what you have set up in your software. In Quicken you may need to verify the routing number as well. Locate the correct routing number, or contact a Fifth Third Customer Service Representative at 1-800-972-3030.
Problem: I entered a bill payment, but it does not show up as a pending payment in Fifth Third Internet Banking and Bill Payment.
Solution: You will need to synchronize your account before any transactions will show up in Fifth Third Internet Banking and Bill Payment. You can use the One Step Update in Quicken or complete the update/send process using the Online Banking Center in QuickBooks to update accounts.
If you were already logged in to Fifth Third Internet Banking and Bill Payment when you performed the update from Quicken or QuickBooks, you will just need to refresh the Fifth Third Internet Banking and Bill Payment display to view your pending payments. Either log off Fifth Third Internet Banking and Bill Payment and log back in, or click Make Payments and then Payment Activity. Your payment will now be listed under Payment Activity as well as on the Summary Screen.
Problem: I changed the account number for a payee in Fifth Third Internet Banking and Bill Payment, but the old account number is still displayed in Quicken.
Solution: As long as Fifth Third Internet Banking and Bill Payment has the correct account information, your payment will be successful. Because changes to payee account numbers are not reflected in certain versions of Quicken, the account number shown in Fifth Third Internet Banking and Bill Payment will become the default for payments.
Problem: My transfers show up in the PFM register, but not in the Fifth Third Internet Banking and Bill Payment statement.
Solution: Transfers generated in the Fifth Third Internet Banking and Bill Payment System will be downloaded in a PFM statement request on the same day they are performed. They do not show up in the Fifth Third Internet Banking and Bill Payment account statement until the following day.
Problem: I made a transfer, but it didn't show up in Card Activity in Fifth Third Internet Banking and Bill Payment.
Solution: Run an update in order to process the request.
Problem: My ending balance does not match my Fifth Third Internet Banking and Bill Payment daily balance.
Solution: Make sure all transactions have cleared for the date range. Cleared transactions are indicated by a 'c' in the register. If the ending balance is still incorrect, then check your opening balance.
Problem: I have other problems with the software, which may not be related to Fifth Third's Web services.
