How to Fix Payments from Check to Credit Card in QuickBooks
Question: I recorded bill payments as being paid by check instead of by credit card. How do I fix that?
Answer: QuickBooks is very forgiving. Just go into the checking account register and delete the payments you recorded by check or electronic payment.
This will put the bills back into the “Pay Bills” section and allow you to record them as credit card payments. Be sure to select the correct credit card that was used for the payments.
