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?
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.
