How to add a new Quicken Bill Pay account to Quicken
If you are still waiting for confirmation on your account setup from Quicken Bill Pay, you can contact Quicken Bill Pay support for assistance.
Before you begin
- If you have upgraded to the 2018/2019 Release of Quicken and you have an existing Quicken Bill Pay account with Quicken for Windows (2017 or older) or Quicken for Mac (2016 or older) you will need to cancel that old account and create a new one on the new Quicken Bill Pay website; instructions for canceling are here.
- Members should create and activate their Quicken Bill Pay accounts on the Quicken Bill Pay website.
- There is a verification process when enrolling in Quicken Bill Pay. A credit check is completed to avoid fraudulent account setup.
- You may be asked to provide information and documentation to verify your identity. This typically occurs if a lock or freeze has been placed on a credit profile.
- This verification process is required even if you already had a Quicken Bill Pay account in the past. Fraud could still be attempted with a new account regardless if an account has been previously created.
After completing this setup, members will then need to add Bill Pay to Quicken desktop. You can use the same Quicken Bill Pay account with both Windows and Mac products.
