how to change bank payment type (not cheque)

Can't seem to figure out: When registering a bank transaction which is a payment eg. monthly credit card statement, it seems to record as a payment type of cheque by default, but it is not a cheque if the the credit card statement is paid by eg. automatic bill payment. How can I change the payment type? Thanks in advance.

The payment for Credit Card accounts is entered by QuickBooks as a check. The best way to handle the credit cards is to have a credit card type account and when you pay on it, change the check number to EFT if it is an automatic payment from the bank to the credit card company. It also causes less confusion if you do not use AP to track the CC amount.

To QB, a 'Check' is any payment from a bank account apart from a Bill Payment. They had to call it something, and when I try to think of a better label I fail, maybe 'Vendor payment'? So just think of a Check as any kind of payment to a vendor from a bank account.
