By default, customers can deposit all payments or sales receipts into undeposited funds. You can deposit some orders into a credit card asset account and PayPal orders into a PayPal account. When you create a rule, use contains because the payment method you're matching can be case insensitive.
What is a deposit account?
When orders reach QB, they appear in a staging area. Merchant providers, like Amazon and PayPal, deposit funds they receive on a daily or bi-weekly interval. When the funds appear in your bank account, you must match the bulk deposit to the staging area orders. By default, orders appear on the QB home screen under bank deposits. To change the deposit account, you may change your settings or add a rule.

- On the configure page, scroll down to account settings.
- In the last drop down, choose an account.
