It really depends on the status of the check when you void it and whether or not that check has been printed. Voiding an eCheck is not the same as a stop-payment issued by your financial institution.
What does voiding an eCheck do?
Voiding an eCheck serves two purposes:
- If the recipient hasn't retrieved the check yet, voiding stops the payee from being able to print the check.
- The check may no longer be verified using our verification system.
If the check has been retrieved by your payee, you will receive an email and on-screen notification after voiding the check. It is highly recommended that you issue a stop-payment if you see this notification.
