Bill Pay

What's going on with Bill Pay. I've been a Quicken user for 20 years and have gotten to the point I'm about to throw it out. I've had accounts dropout of Bill-Pay, MFA issues every time I sign into Chase, payment amounts and due dates not being picked up even though they have been posted on the website by the billers, future payments missed because of login issues at the time of payment, incorrect payment dates showing in bill-pay and reminders and more. At the same time One Time Updates does update the registers. So why does one section of Quicken work and other sections don't? C'mon Quicken. You can do better than this.

    About your Bill Manager issues

    My 2cents' worth, if I may:

    I don't use Bill Pay services or Bill Manager at all, neither the one from Quicken nor the one offered by my bank. Since time "B.I." (before the Internet was invented) I have set up almost all of my recurring payments as Direct Debit, PAC Draft, Autopay, APS, whatever the biller calls it. Using the biller's website, I authorized the biller to electronically debit each payment directly from my checking or credit card account on due date. Now I can sit back, relax and wait for it to happen. Instead of having to wrestle with making payment on time I let the biller do all the work.

    When I get notified of a new statement having arrived, usually by email, all I have to do in Quicken is to run a regular scheduled reminder to record the transaction. Haven't missed a payment in many years.

    I recommend you do the same instead of continuing to fight the Bill Manager windmill, missing payments and getting slapped with penalty interest rates and fees.
