How to Enter Credit Card Charges in QuickBooks

I use the bill pay service with my bank to pay my credit card bills. I always pay the full amount. How do I post that type of payment in the credit card section of my QuickBooks. I put these entries in the check register. My check register is correct, but my credit card accounts are not.
You should enter your credit card charges in Banking > Enter Credit Card Charges either as you go along or at the end of the month when you get your statement.  This increases your balance. 

When you pay your credit card bill, use your credit card account as the expense account.  This decreases your balance.

You should also reconcile the credit card account at Banking > Reconcile to make sure everything’s been entered correctly.
