Accept a check via the web

A new concept in check acceptance is available. If you sell over the net you have already run into the problem of a customer not having a credit card. What can you do? Wait for the check to come in the mail? Most consumers want to finalize the purchase quickly. By accepting checks you can accommodate customers who don't have a credit card. Its very simple to use. No equipment required, you don't even need a web site, just simple internet access. It can be added to your web site. You can have pre-defined payment amounts, automatic billing on a monthly basis. And of course a verification process is done on each transaction to help prevent losses.



There are two ways of processing a sale. You can enter the sales yourself or place a link on your site so your customers can fill in the check information.

If you have the customers do it, it's as simple as adding a link to a web page. Many of your potential customers do not have a credit card. By accepting checks you can capture many more sales. This can be used if you have single or multiple items for sale. The bank draft system is very easy to use and ours is fully automated and safe.



When a customer pays by check there is a form given that resembles a blank check. It works the same as if the person were in front of you filling out a check. When the transaction is done you receive an e-mail notice of the sale.

You have the option to set up a billing plan by setting the 'Recurring' flag on the e-check to the period you want the debits to be re-run. You can select weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. The transaction will be re-run according to the schedule you've chosen without having to do anything else.


Single item for sale


This is ideal for memberships or if your selling a single item. All you need to do is copy the pay by check link to your web page. This example shows how to set it up and walks you through the transaction process. EXAMPLE
