Overview

Quicken is moving to a new Bill Pay platform and the current Quicken Bill Pay service will be discontinued on Aug 31, 2020, between 4:00-6:00 AM PT.

The new Quicken Bill Manager comes with significant upgrades over Quicken Bill Pay, but it does work differently than what you may be used to with Quicken Bill Pay. The article below will give you more details on these differences.

 

How does Bill Manager work differently?

In the old Quicken Bill Pay, payments were typically made in the Online Center or in the register.

In the Online Center, you would:

  1. Select Quicken Bill Pay from the Financial Institution list
  2. Select the account to make the payment from.
  3. Enter the payment details and delivery date.
  4. Click Enter then Update/Send to send the payment instructions.

Ways to pay in Quicken Bill Manager

Quicken Bill Manager also offers two ways to pay your bills: Quick Pay and Check Pay!

  • Quick Pay: Send electronic payments to billers (payees) who have online accounts accessible by Quicken. This includes over 11,000 billers. Many billers you paid with a check in Quicken Bill Pay can be paid electronically with Quick Pay!
  • Check Pay: Send a check to anyone in the United States with an address. The check is sent through a Quicken service. You will no longer need to print or mail checks. While most billers now accept electronic payments (like the ones made with Quick Pay), Check Pay gives you the option to make check payments to billers and parties that cannot accept an electronic payment, such as a gardener or local service companies. 

What about Bank Bill Pay?

If you use your bank's bill pay in Quicken, you can continue to use it the same way you do now. Bank Bill Pay will not change.
