What is checks by fax and how does it work?

Does your businesses already accept checks by fax? If not, this is the easiest way to accept checks from your customers, clients, tenants, policy holders, and patients.

How to accept checks by fax:
You can either create a standard form for your customer to fax to you, or just ask them to fax a copy of their check for their invoice, order or debt.  Once you receive the fax copy of the check, you have implied written consent to create a draft of their check.

What next:

After you start to accept checks by fax from your customers, using software like CheckWriter, you can simply enter the information, then using a laser or ink jet printer, you create a draft of the check, with no signature required.

CheckWriter will print a draft that you can then deposit into any U.S. bank the same day.  The draft will be treated just like a check you receive through the mail or over the counter.  Just endorse the back, and make your deposit.

Benefits of checks by fax:
Checks by fax payments are the easiest to process, and the most accurate, because you have an picture of the check from the fax.  This way, there is no confusion as to what the routing number, the account number or even the check number are.  Just take the information from the face of the check yourself.

In addition to accuracy, when you accept checks by fax, it creates a paper trail where you the merchant will have written proof of authorization.  Although not required for check drafting, this is a valuable loss prevention tool, especially in industries that are considered high risk or may have potential for fraud or misuse.
