Can't "pay money to supplier" from non-Accounts payable accounts

I created a ‘credit card’ account for my credit card bills. When I try to pay the bill for the supplier (the credit card company), Manager won’t let me attribute it to the credit card account I created. However, it will let me attribute it to ‘accounts payable’ - which I don’t want to do.

Can you describe steps you go through to record payment from supplier? Also, was the “Credit Card” account created as a bank account under “Bank Accounts” tab or general ledger account under Chart of Accounts?
