    Hello @Smoose

    Thank you for taking the time to visit the Community to ask your question, although I apologize that you have not received a response.

    When I attempt to recreate this, I can use the "Other Amount" field. I believe the difference is that I do not have a minimum payment amount due yet and this allows me to use this field. 





    I was not able to confirm this as I do not have a credit card payment that is due yet. Do you by chance have a credit card that does not have a minimum amount due?

    Please let me know!

    I paid my minimum balance first, now it let me do custom amount
    I checked other billers, some of them are not allowing to pay custom amounts. Its weird :(

    @Quicken_Tyka  I'm curious about this statement, or perhaps I'm misunderstanding. If I have a credit card bill with a $300 current balance, a $200 statement balance at the end of the most recent billing period, and a $20 minimum payment required, why wouldn't I be able to pay any amount I want, whether it's $50 or $150 or $250? I could certainly do so if I was paying on the credit card company's website. Why would having a minimum payment amount block me from paying any "other" amount I wish to pay? If Quick Pay forces customers to pay the minimum amount and not a higher "other" amount, Quicken is pushing customers into higher credit card balances and larger interest payments. Or, as @Smoose indicates, requiring two separate payments: one for the minimum amount and one for an additional amount. That's not making any sense to me, so perhaps I'm misunderstanding. Otherwise, isn't this a bug?
