If I paid someone through my bank or credit union's online bill pay service, why did the person receive a paper check?

Most bill pay transactions are executed as electronic transfers. However, some payment recipients, including many individuals, do not have accounts that enable them to receive electronic payments from individual payers and must instead accept a paper check.
