QuickBooks Bill Pay

We currently enter bills from our vendors, then pay them using Bill Pay. I see that Bill Pay was discontinued in December 2019, however we have been able to continue using it. I want to make sure that we can continue to do so.

 

When we pay a bill through the pay bills window, we use a process similar to below:

It creates an item that goes into the batch of other online checks that have been queued up with our bank feed. We have an online bill bay arrangement set up with our bank that accepts our transactions sent over from QuickBooks. Will this continue to work for the foreseeable future?

Hey there, @cjg608. Happy to provide some insight into your question about Bill Pay.

 

The Online Bill Pay feature through Bill.com was discontinued, however if you've signed up for a bill pay service through your bank, it will continue to work as normal.

If I understand correctly, if I signed up for Bill Pay through my bank, it would continue to work as normal. 

 

I have had a BofA account for 30 yrs and use Qbks for my Bill Pay linked to BofA; (click on banking and Bank feeds). 

However, as I opened a second account with BofA for the PPP loan, 2 checks have not been paid and now late.  My original account still works.

Who to speak with?

 

Thank you.

Hello, and welcome to the Community, DrGutt.
 

When you first set up the Bill Pay feature in QuickBooks Desktop, an application had to be done with your bank for online payment services. You can check with them to make sure you're still approved to send payments this way.
 

Since this feature was discontinued on December 2, 2019, you'll have to look into other options for paying bills online. We have a database of third-party apps which might be of use to you for what you're trying to do. I recommend taking a look through them sometime to see what you may be able to find. Here's how:
1. Go to our Apps for QuickBooks Desktop page.
2. Open the All Applications tab.
3. In the search field, enter something like "Bill Pay".
4. Click the Search button.

If you find something that sounds useful, you can do more research into it to verify if it's something that will work for you and your business. Another option is doing bill payments through your bank, if they offer such services. Check with them to see what options they may have available for you.
 

Here's a detailed article that explains more about the discontinuation of the Online Bill Pay feature and what you can do if you were using it: Online Bill Pay Overview
 

If you have any other questions, feel free to reach out to me anytime. Enjoy the rest of your day!

If I am understanding correctly, are you indicating that QB does not have a bill pay system? I am using QB Online and recently begin using the bill pay, due to COVID. I did a couple of transactions and now I have a transaction for a large sum of money that I am unable to get completed. This is powered through Melio/Evolve Bank.

Hi there, Andrea Davis. 

 

Thanks for the post in the QuickBooks Community, I'm happy to clear things up a little bit, the desktop version of Bill Pay provided by Fiserv was what was discontinued. If you'd like to use Online Bill Pay with your QuickBooks Online account, you absolutely can! Below, I'm providing a link that breaks down what Online Bill Pay is, it highlights everything about the product. As well as a link that shows you how to sign up for it. 

If you have any other questions or concerns, feel free to post them here, whenever, day or night. Thanks for your time and have a nice weekend.

QuickBooks Bill Pay

Hello, I have used QB desktop for 20 years or so.  I can still use bill pay out of that long standing account being "grandfathered" in.  I moved my business from CA to NV and have a new Tax ID # and hand to open an new business account.  It is from the new business account that I can't pay bill from.  

 

I have looked at QBO and for my manufacturing business, QBO just won't work.  So now I am still looking for a bill pay service that I can use with QB Premier Desktop??

I can provide the site where you can pay bills, wilpie.

 

QuickBooks Desktop offers several applications to help you pay bills online. You have two options on how you can still make payments:

  • through your bank or financial institution (FI) for alternate solutions
  • by using a supported third-party app.

If you choose to pay through your bank, you need to set up a direct connection from your FI. You can refer to this article for instructions and detailed steps: Use Online Bill Pay in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

If you want to use a third-party app, you can visit our QuickBooks Desktop App center as mentioned by 

 

I've also added this page: Pay bills in QuickBooks Desktop  for detailed steps on how to make bill payments in QuickBooks. 

 

Stay in touch with me if you need additional information. Just tag my name, and I'm glad to help.

Nick, Your reply is not correct. Bill.com is NOT an equivalent replacement for Fiserv and the links you provided are relevant  to QB ONLINE, not desktop.

Please save us time and admit that you do NOT have a replacement for Fiserv.

Bill.com makes you initiate payments from within their software so if you first enter the bill manually, you do it outside of QB first then the two programs sync.

If you have a 3rd party application that you paid a lot of money to have that imports bills into QB (like I did), you are abandoned!
