Accept these Checks!
Yes! Most of the banks will accept these checks. There is really no reason why they shouldn't accept these checks. The program provides you with the micr font which is the font style that you see at the bottom of all checks. And, most banks use optical scanning equipment to read the numbers at the bottom of the check.
However, some banks still use the older and much outdated method of magnetic ink. If that is the case, it's easy to set up an account at a bank that accepts these checks or as my bank told me "No problems, at worst case scenario, we would just have to manually key them in and you would be accessed a special handling fee"! WOW! I thought $$$$! So, I asked how much? I nearly busted out laughing when I was told 25 cents each! Credit card transactions are usually 30 cents plus 2-4%! Oh, by the way!
My bank does NOT have to manually key them in! No fees whatsoever! And my bank is a ONE BANK CHAIN! Maybe that is good, because they outsource all their check processing to a major check processing center which uses optical scanning equipment! When I first asked a teller if I could print my customers check's and deposit them in my account, I got a dumb stare and a blank look!
So, she asked her supervisor who asked her supervisor! They all looked stupefied by the question and looked at me like I was crazy! Well, after they checked (ha! ha!) into it! I was told to bring in 10 samples so they could submit them to the processing company!
And, that in the mean time, they would begin accepting the checks and if necessary, access the 25 cent fee! Well, like I said above, No fees and No problems! I've been selling this software for quite awhile now, and NO ONE has ever complained about it! Or told me that their bank would not accept these checks! The author of the software said the first time he printed up some checks, he put them into the night deposit so no tellers would ask him any questions! And, he didn't have any questions later, either!
The program will print on ANY blank paper! But, you should buy blank check stock because it's the best for quality and security! I have used a high quality 24lb bond granite style paper bought from a regular office supply and the bank never said anything!
Most cities have office supply stores or bank supply
houses which offer blank check paper!
There are MANY reasons having this software is a GREAT benefit for your business. Because you can accept a check immediately over the phone, fax, or email, you can close an impulse sale. Also, all those people out there without credit cards are now your immediate prospects and not "The Checks In The Mail" customers!
You can have a check in your hands immediately. No more waiting 4-7 days for Uncle Sam to deliver your orders. Also, you can even use this for monthly subscription type services, by printing a new check once a month, or whenever the fees are due! How about to save on credit card fees and stop charge backs! I'm sure you could come up with many other reasons!
