    I just did my third investment in prosper.com and it is getting to be enough to make it worth posting in Quicken. I invest in a package of loans and receive a check every month with interest and principal repayment.
    I started to set this up as a savings account but that did not work. I tried broker but not sure how to post the securities. I have 3 now. $50 and $50 (to test the waters) and now $1,000.

    Any thoughts on how to record these?

    Thanks

    Did you try
    Property and debt|Add a new loan, and then checked Lend money? It may
    work for you, although in my testing I wasn't very keen on it.

    Apart from the problem of recording these activities, there is doubt as
    to whether this site has a good reputation
    (<http://badmoneyadvice.com/2010/01/is-prosper-com-a-good-
    investment.html>).

    YMMV <grin>.
