Hi there, @InjusticeHater.
The option "Make Payments" has been changed to "Mark as Paid" when processing a bill payment in QuickBooks Online (QBO). You can click the Mark as paid button beside schedule an ONLINE bill pay to pay your bills via paper check. Also, on the Expense screen, you'll see the option "Schedule Payment" under the action column. Just click the black drop-down arrow and choose"Mark as paid."
On the other hand, there are two ways to see the Make Payment option in QBO. The first one is in the vendor's Action column and the other is through the transaction list. For the first option, here's how:
Please refer to the steps below for the second option:

Please let me know if you have more questions about managing payments or other QuickBooks-related concerns. I'll be here to lend a hand. Take care and stay safe.
I want the Mark as Paid to be the default. I don't want to be a captive audience to the marketing of your new product. I am a paying customer. Please remove this from my Expenses screen or make Mark as Paid the default.
I posted this 3 weeks ago. Do you have any updates for your paying customers? Are you going to continue to shove new features DOWN OUR THROATS? Or are you going to remove the "Schedule Online Payment" marketing ploy?
Thanks for getting back to us, opqiaedjrfgoaidjrfhsz.
For now, the option to Make payment is still the default option on your bill. The Schedule payment option will show up from your Expenses tab if you've set up the schedule payment feature in QuickBooks Online (QBO).
Though there isn't any update yet. You'll want to use this option in the meantime when making a manual payment to your bill.

The option to 'Make Payment' is definitely NOT the default option on a bill. The default is to 'Save and Close' or to 'Save and new' or to 'Save and schedule payment' based on which one you used last. AND, if you choose 'Save and schedule payment' it takes you to the new online bill pay feature that you're SHOVING DOWN OUR THROATS.
So, first of all that part of your response is definitely not true.
Secondly, the Schedule payment option will show up from your Expenses tab EVEN IF YOU HAVE NOT set up the schedule payment feature.
So, the second part of your statement is also not true.
If the second part was true I wouldn't have a problem. However, I am NOT going to set up online bill pay and the stupid 'Schedule online payment' takes away from my happiness with the system.
I used to be able to click and pay, click and pay. I liked that. I DO NOT like this.
