Can't activate my download with Capital One

I keep trying to activate my download with Capital One. I go to the online services tab & click on set up now. I enter my login info but then I get an error that says "Sorry. We encountered an error. (It's not your fault). I have been trying for a few days to get my account ready for download with no success. This is very frustrating when I can't use quicken.

    HI @weezer73

    What is the error code that you get when you try to connect the account?  Also, what type of account is this - 360 savings, or credit card?  If it is a 360 savings account, they have special procedures that you need to follow to connect it.  Go to the bank's website, log in, and then go to the Security tab and add Quicken as a "linked App".

    Let me know how that goes.

    I went to the CapitalOne site. You can't add "Quicken" in as a linked app from there. Plus I got that error, "Sorry. We encountered an error. (It's not your fault)" even when I did have it linked in there.

    It's been almost a week now. Its a ton of work to download from them.

    I just called Capital One and they said that the Quicken product needs to update to accomodate their new security changes and that Intuit has been informed. [Removed- Speculation].

    Hi again @Jen1977,

    Is this a bank account or a credit card issue?

    Despite Quicken saying Capital One is resolved, I am getting "An Unexpected Error Has Occurred" try again tomorrow message. This is a new card for me I am trying to add. Used to be a Pottery Barn card that was converted to Capital One on August 23. I am using "Capital One Credit Card" as the payee I am trying to add.

    Hello @GIWalt

    Thank you for the update however, I do apologize that the issue is still persisting for you. I would recommend restoring a backup and attempting to add it. If adding your account is unsuccessful please contact Quicken Support so that they can collect log files and investigate further.

    Hope this helps. Let us know how it goes and if you have any questions or concerns.

    Yeah but no. I will give it a day just like Quicken said to do. Everything with my Quicken account is working just fine except I cannot add a new card that was converted from Pottery Barn to Capital One on August 23rd. The new card has never been successfully linked but its been less than a week since the conversion. With all due respect, the "restore from a backup" is the first step Quicken always recommends out of its playbook. I would like to know if ANYONE who had a Pottery Barn or Williams Sonoma card converted to Capital One on August 23rd has been able to link their new card to Capital One in Quicken. I think we should start there and not assume its me needing to restore from a backup.

    I have also reported to Quicken via Help (Chat).

    So, after 45 minutes or so of Quicken Chat including uploading a screen shot of the error message, I was told the Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma Capital One cards are not yet supported in e-bill and may never be. Seems contrary to what's been posted here. I remain, very confused.

    Hello @GIWalt

    Pardon the confusion. There are two aspects when it comes to Capital One. The first is the actual financial institution which was having issues with aggregation and updated. That has been resolved as of today for the majority of users. The second aspect is Capital One as an online biller (e-biller). As of right now it is unsupported and has been a continuous issue since June 2019.

    Please let us know if you have any further questions or concerns.
