And exactly what are you doing to send the payments? What steps do you take?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

first I click on tools; then click on online center; then I click on payees;;

next I enter amount I am paying; I then repeat for each bill that I am paying;
Finally I click on update- send. I enter my passwork in password XXXXX then click on update now'


Hope this makes sense to you!

Perfect sense!

Last question, are you using Quicken Bill Pay or doing this via your bank?

Thank you
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I think I'm doing it via quicken bill pay - I say think, because my bank is Wells Fargo and it shows up during the process.

I'm sorry to sound so stupid, but I guess I am

Your not! it is a complicated program

But, choose the Tools menu then select Account List. Click Edit next to your account, then choose the Online tab at the top.

What is listed there and then we know.

ok.l when I got to the online the automatic entry was checked "off"


I went in and changed it to "on"


I just tried to "update now". when I initially tried to update, it showed each payment on the register - but the error message accompanied it


Am I good to go now?

ok, it was off, so if it is on, you should now be good to go

Test and Let me know the results please

Thank you
