Bill Paying in Quicken using 3rd party bill pay

OK, this is either obvious and I'm clueless or it can't be done.


I've been using Quicken Bill pay for years now and I like the integration
with the program and the checkbook register. Specifically, I like the fact
that I can go to the online tab and make payments, or do it on the web when
I am away from my home computer. However, I don't like the $9.95 per month
cost of the service. My credit union offers bill pay for free to me (in
fact I believe it is using the same service the Quicken bill pay uses
judging from the on-screen interface). I can easily use it from the Web,
and the credit union has on-line account synchronization with the quicken
program, however I can't get to it while in Quicken, thus I have to either
manually enter the transactions, or wait until they clear the bank and then
let the on line update pick them up. The problem with the latter method is
that you don't have those future transactions showing in the register. They
only show after the fact. The problem with the former is that you have to
spend the time creating the transaction on the bill pay web site and then do
it again to record them in Quicken.

Sorry about the long preamble, but my basic question is it there is a way to
use a third party bill pay in the same manner as Quicken Bill pay is used
within the program?

Thanks, in advance,

Yes, I use it with National City Bank and with Bank One. I believe Wachovia and Bank
of America also offer it. If your financial institution is on Quicken's FI list and
if they offer direct billpay you can activate it very easily from within Quicken by
editing the account.

You can also look at past info on the subject by searching the NG on Google.
