the cheques, manually, deposit it in the
bank and wait for a couple of days
before it is processed. However, in this

in this way is very unlikely and very
inconvenient. E – Check or electronic
check processing is the method used now.

to accept payments in the form of paper
checks and then collect money from the
bank account electronically, through the
ACH or Automated Clearing House network.
This is the same network which is used
for direct payments and direct deposits.
According to official
reports, one billion paper checks got
converted in to ACH based payments in
the year 2007.
