Money Bill Pay without Fees


I

It's me again

A couple of years ago my bank decided that the free bill pay no longer
applied to Money users. So they started charging $6.95 per month. Now they
want $8.00 per month. I am having difficulty finding banks in the US that
support Money bill pay for a smaller fee or no fee. The list of institutions
on the Money website is non specific regarding the support of Money bill pay.

It's pretty common for banks to charge for Money connectivity -- they pay
licensing fees to offer the service to you. Often, you can use their
web-based billpay at no cost.

I'm sure that lots of banks waive this fee if you keep a substantial minimum
balance. Chase is one that does.

What licensing fees are you referring to?

It's not just a matter of fees. The financial institutions (banks,
brokerages) that I have contacted do not offer support for Money bill pay.
Mostly they offer browser access to a bill paying website. After paying your
bills that way you can download the transactions to the Money database. Very
unsatisfying. I was hoping someone could point me to a resource where can be
found a list of banks offering bill pay via Money. Well, Chase is a start. I
will contact them. Thanks.

Sorry I don't have a list but I do know that Netbank offers direct-connect
billpay from within the Money software (at least with Money 2006). I assume
it's the same with 2007 but since I haven't upgraded I cannot say for sure.

Look into Wachovia. I'm satisfied. I have little interaction with the bank,
actually. Maybe that's an indication of how well it works?

TD Banknorth used to offer it for free. I don't use that service so I don't
know if it is still free. And they are being bought out by Citibank.

Yes TD Banknorth is still free. I use it and it works fine. TD Banknorth is
one of the better banks.
