FAQ - QuickBooks Online: Your Payee is Showing as 'Credit Card Misc.'

For non-reimbursable expenses, the payee field will list "Credit Card Misc." in QuickBooks Online, if the merchant name on the expense in Expensify is not an exact match to a vendor in QBO. This is also case sensitive.

When an exact match is not available, "Credit Card Misc." is used to prevent multiple variations of the same vendor (e.g. Starbucks and Starbucks #1234, as is often seen in credit card statements) being created in QBO.

To have a different vendor listed, you can change the merchant name in Expensify to be a match to the appropriate vendor entry in QBO.

For repeated expenses, best practice is to use Expense Rules, which will automatically update the merchant name without having to do it manually each time.

    Hi Stevie, we have QB desktop instead of QB online but we have come across what you are saying of naming the merchant "Credit Card Misc" if it does not have an exact match in QB. We have found this to be less than ideal, I understand the goal of not creating multiple variations of the same vendor but if you are dealing with many new vendors for each credit card you will have a lot of transactions in QB with the vendor name as Credit Card Misc. I think that Expensify should work on a way to communicate to QB to add a new vendor with the merchant name as listed in Expensify. Due to Expensify's inability to do this we will not be using the feature that exports Reports directly into QB, instead we have to do the work around of exporting a file and them importing.
