Bill Pay discontinued in Enterprise 17?

Has anyone else tried to use Bill Pay in QB Enterprise 17? I've used Bill Pay successfully with other QB versions, so tried enrolling with my current company recently. The online application wouldn't process correctly, so I mailed it in. After not hearing back for a month, I called my Priority Circle Rep. She spent about an hour trying to figure out what happened to my application, and then let me know that Bill Pay wasn't compatible with the recent updates in QB Enterprise 17, and that it would be discontinued in the future. Has anyone found a similar add-on that works well? Thanks

What you don't know won't hurt you.

Welcome to the site, Julie.
Also on Enterprise 17, with a service company.
Tell me about this Bill Pay thing we don't have.

Bill Pay

Hi Froid,

It was a great add-on that allowed electronic vendor payments from within QB. You could select QB Bill Pay as a payment method when paying bills, eliminating paper check printing and duplicate entry in a bank website. It saved a lot of time. How do you pay bills?

We pay our A/P about 80% by check, 10% ACH, and 10% EFT. (The EFT's are automatic draws from vendors, which we transact same as ACH on QB.) Our routine vendors number about seventy or so, but would be much higher if we did not use company credit cards to settle bills.

We wish QB utilized a feature where the user indicates in the vendor master whether to pay by check or ACH/EFT. It made us resort to clever Excel methods to separate and identify by payment type. Frequently, my staff unnecessarily write a check, even with our workaround.

@ Froid

Have you considered setting the vendor name with the payment type, ie

Bill's Plumbing - EFT
Joe's Elect - ACH

On the vendor record payment settings you can set the print as name to the correct business name for check printing

That's a really good idea. We might try that solution. Thank you.
