Be sure to avoid late fees and penalty interest rates
Are you about to be
late with making your bill payment due to problems or unexpected delays in
Quicken Bill Manager (Quick Pay or Check Pay) that can't be resolved in a
fighting these problems, to avoid missed payments I recommend you logon
directly to the biller's website and authorize them to direct debit the next
(and perhaps all future) payments from your checking account or a credit card.
The biller will make an electronic debit on the due date and you don't have to
worry about being late.
In Quicken just
record a scheduled reminder that does not execute as an online payment into
your account register on or before the Due Date and before you download
transactions from the bank or credit card containing the debit transaction.
That will allow Quicken to match your register transaction to the downloaded
data and not cause any further issues.
