Now that you’ve linked your Deluxe eChecks and QuickBooks Online bank account you’re ready to make payments — which can be completed by either printing a paper check or sending an eCheck, depending on how you complete the Bill Payment screen (or Write Checks screen).
TIP: Forward this link to everyone on your team who creates bill payments.
If you want to send a paper check, complete the form as your normally would. If you want to send an eCheck payment, you need to meet three conditions when filling out the Bill Payment screen:
- The QuickBooks bank account you select must be linked with your eChecks account.
- The payment amount must be greater than $0.
- The Print Later box must be selected to suppress the standard printing function for a paper check.
When the system detects the conditions above, along with an email in the vendor profile, it initiates the creation of an eCheck — which is sent to the email address on the vendor profile. Every 5 minutes QuickBooks Online pushes eChecks to be created and delivered. Do not be alarmed if the check isn't sent out instantly.
