does sending an electronic bill pay from another's bank account count as a 3rd party payment?

Why would that be any different than mailing in a check from that same acct?

because they dont automatically see the name on someone elses bank acct, whereas most checks have a name on top

and you really think they manually deposit your check and apply the payment towards your account?
IME Amex told me the name on the bank account, after sending bill pay

they never see anybody's name unless they look into it.
once you are up to that stage it doesn't matter if you paid via check or bill pay, they can can see everything.

I do this a lot with chase, i'm assuming I should stop? Rather than cash / deposit checks, I usually just pay my cards with it..

Yes, I wouldn't use third party checks with Chase.

I still wouldn't do that with Chase, they don't like any funny business.

if you cash the check using your checking account? Wouldn’t that show up that it went into and out of your account?

At Chase it doesn't show on statement, but I'm sure technically, yes they can see it.
