Biller Requires a Payment Date of Today or Earlier

"Biller Requires a Payment Date of Today or Earlier"

I get this message a lot when using Quick Pay (Quicken for Windows). The latest was today trying to make a future pmt to Verizon Wireless. I am certain that Verizon accepts future pmts.

Far too often I have to give up on Quick Pay and schedule direct payments through a billers web site.

  • Hello @paton

    Thank you for reaching out to Quicken Community. I apologize you are having difficulties making future payments to your biller. I took a look into your Verizon Wireless online biller/Account and did not notice anything out of sort at the moment. Therefore, I would recommend validating the online biller(s). 

    To validate your online biller select Bills & Income >Settings >Review and Repair >Review and Repair Online billers. A visual example is below. 

    Hope this helps. Please attempt the steps above and let us know how it goes.

    Thanks, I tried your advice, but that didn't solve the problem. Still getting "Biller requires a date of (today's date)". I believe I noticed that there is a current Quick Pay issue with Verizon. Let me know when it's resolved. Thx

    Just received the same message ("Biller Requires a Payment Date of Today or Earlier") for biller, Florida Power & Light (FPL).

    I received the same message when attempting to pay my Dekalb County Ga water bill. When I went to the Dekalb County payment site to manually pay it, the site would not allow me to schedule it as a future payment. It would only accept an immediate payment. It may be a limitation of the biller's web site.
