Editing Online Payee Information

Product Version

Important: This FAQ refers to Quicken Bill Pay, a service that will be discontinued on August 31st, 2020. Our new service, Quicken Bill Manager, is now available for paying your bills directly from Quicken. For more information about switching to Quicken Bill Manager, click here.


You can use the Quicken program or the Quicken Bill Pay website to edit online payee information such as nickname and address. However, you cannot edit a payee's name or account number.

If you need to edit the name or account number, you must create a new payee with the new name or account number. After all outstanding payments to the old payee name have been processed, you can delete the old payee.

If a payee has payments in process or scheduled, you must cancel all pending and scheduled payments before you can edit that payee.
