Check Pay vs Bill Pay

Options

Why am I getting a "Check Pay" instead of a "Bill Pay" when setting up a payment for Chase Bank?

    If your question is about Quicken Bill Manager, perhaps the thread at this link will help explain? In that thread there are also links to an Alert and a Support Article regarding this subject.:

    If your question is about Direct Connect Bank Bill Pay where you send a bill pay command from within Quicken directly to Chase: This process requires a DC connection which Chase discontinued support for about a year ago.

    The current connection method Chase supports is EWC+ and EWC+ does not support Bank Bill Pay.

    So, if you want to pay bills with Chase you need to either use Quicken's Bill Manager (Check Pay only at this time) or log into your online account at Chase.com and schedule the bill payment there. Another option that can sometimes be used is to go to the biller's website and schedule the payment there to be pulled directly from Chase.

    It appears that useful integration of Quick Pay with a large number of major institutions is impossible due to security concerns at those institutions. Bill Pay is in effect not integrated at all with Quicken Reminders, so even using Check Pay instead of Quick Pay creates extra steps… reminder pops up and insterad of simply entering the current amount and selecting "Send" you also have to select the Check Pay payee from the very poorly implementedf QP/CP pulldown.

    Bill Manager/Bill Pay seems to be a failure. Please back it out and go back to the previous method used with CheckFree. It was FAR more convenient!
