How can I strip the "AplPay" that prefixes my transactions paid by Apple Pay?

Having that prefix on any Apple Pay transaction is annoying, and I'd prefer not to have to create a renaming rule or rename each transaction. The rule editor is too simple and does not allow for this.

    Hello @[email protected],

    Thank you for contacting the Quicken Community, though I do apologize that you are experiencing this issue with the payee of your transactions. 

    First, I suggest creating a test file and adding the financial institution accounts with which you are experiencing this issue. You can create a test file by navigating to File > New > Start from Scratch. Please keep in mind that it is recommended to save a backup before proceeding with troubleshooting steps (just in case). 

    Please let me know how this goes!

  • There is no issue with downloading the transactions, just anything that was paid via Apple Pay appends AplPay before the merchant name

    The purpose of the test file is to see if the payee name comes in the same in both the main file and the test file. 

    I hope this clears things up.

  • This is American Express across multiple cards. This is unexpected behavior?

    Please let me know once you have completed the test file and what the results were. 

    Thank you.

    I use Apple Pay with an Amex card & don't have any issues with it putting "AplPay" in the payee field. However I only use Apple Pay at a few grocery stores so renaming rules might be taking care of that for me. I'm on the road at the moment & don't have my Quicken file available so I can't check that.

    With the Preferences for creating renaming rules and being prompted being enabled (in Edit / Preferences / Downloaded Transactions) it should be relatively simple to make Quicken help you create proper renaming Rules for each occurrence of "AplPay merchant name" to "merchant name", as they occur.
    All you need to do is set your download preferences to NOT automatically accept downloaded transactions. Instead, select each new "AplPay ..." transaction, go into the new transaction line in the register, change the Payee Name, make other necessary changes and click Accept. You should now get a prompt about the new renaming rule about to be created. Accept that. Done. One down, only a few more AplPay merchants to go.
