    My understanding is that it means the FI doesn't support bill payments via Quicken.

    Frankx is almost correct.
    Every record in the fidir.txt file has NOT_QBP NA in it but these two entries:




























    10756    10756    10756    zzz Quicken Bill Pay old    http://quicken.intuit.com/    (877) 486-8844    https://www.quickenonline.intuit.com/quickenweb/pages/iam/login_main.jsf    ACTIVE    ACCOUNTINFO,PAYMENT&DIRECT                   CURRENT_QBP    NA

    16402    16402    16402    zzz-Quicken Bill Pay - New    http://quickenbillpay.com/    (877) 486-8844    http://quickenbillpay.com/    ACTIVE    ACCOUNTINFO,PAYMENT&DIRECT                   CURRENT_QBP    NA

    So, I interpret that to mean that the FI entry is not used by QUICKEN BILL PAY, not whether or not you can do bill pay transactions with the FI's bill pay system.

    NOTE: QUICKEN BILL PAY is no longer the system used by Quicken.

    Thank you @Frankx . There are ~16K rows.  Only two are CURRENT_QBP, and all the rest are NOT_QBP.

    I think QBP stands for QuickBooks Pay.  Remember this list is used by Intuit for QuickBooks too, which is one of the main reasons it is still around even after Intuit got rid of Quicken.

    The financial institutions that support Direct Connect Bill Payment have this:
    PAYMENT&DIRECT

    There is no more Quicken Bill Pay. Hence the "zzz"s.

    Sounds good to me. I was debating between Quicken Bill Pay and QuickBooks Pay.  Should have gone with the first one.  :smile:

    And now that I think of it, it makes more sense.  Since Quicken Bill Pay used ACH transfers almost every financial institution would have been supported.  And whatever system QuickBooks is using would have to be support on almost all of them too, and as such one two missing would be "wrong".
