  • Online Bill Pay service

    Has anyone used for budgeting and bill pay? Your experience? other software used?

    Use Quicken for online bill payment. Works just fine ... just remember that all bill payment services have a lead time. Really no different than writing a check and posting it.

    For Quicken the first time you set a a bill payee the lead time is 6 days. From there it drops to 3 days.

    As to your question, who is the firm? I would ask some tough questions particularly if your going to entrust your financial details to a 3rd party.

      I've paid bills electronically since 1999 when I began a job at CheckFree, the leading service. (The majority of U.S. banks that offer billpay are actually using a rebranded CheckFree service.)

      Although I no longer work there, I've stayed with the service. Thousands of on time payments later, I can't fathom ever going back to paper.

        How about your bank

        I use the service that my bank provides. Works well.

          Yes, too complicated

          I tried mvelopes and found credit card charges and payments unnecessarily complicated, requiring too many steps. The overall concept is fine but implementation is not intuitive for non-accountant people who don't understand double-entry systems.
