We're glad you asked! It's a check, just like the checks Deluxe has produced for over 100 years. eChecks are everything paper checks are, with one key difference – they are delivered securely in seconds at the speed of an email.
What eChecks are:
DPX eChecks are checks that is printed by the recipient. A little more specifically, after the check is sent by an authorized user, the recipient of the check receives a notification by email. The recipient then prints the check using normal paper in either color or black and white. Once printed, the check is endorsed on the back and is ready for deposit.
Find out the ways we recommend to deposit an eCheck.
What eChecks are not:
It's also important to understand that eChecks are not any of the following transaction types:
- ACH (Automated Clearing House)
- RCC (Remotely Created Check)
- EPO (Electronic Payment Order)
- ECI (Electronically Created Item)
