You asked, and we listened. We’re excited to announce that our popular check deposit feature is now available in the iOS app. We understand that dealing with checks can be a hassle, and you have more important things to do than waiting around by your laptop for checks to arrive in your account.
With the check deposit feature in the iOS app, you can be anywhere, getting groceries or enjoying a day at the park, and deposit your checks from your mobile device as soon as they arrive in your account.
Our product and engineering teams have been hard at work for the last few months making this a reality. As of October 6th, this functionality is live in the iOS app! Now you can deposit checks and track their progress at your convenience, 24/7, from your mobile device.
Checks are here to stay
In the age of credit cards and Apple Pay©, it’s easy to think of checks as a thing of the past, but that’s not the case. In 2019, the Federal Reserve reported collecting 17.5 million commercial checks daily. This translates to an average daily value of $33.1 billion. Checks aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, especially for small businesses. According to the SMB Technology Adoption Index™ in Q3 of 2016, 97% of small and medium businesses surveyed were still dependent on checks for sending and receiving payments.
We’ve seen similar trends with Earth Class Mail customers. Earth Class Mail customers cash anywhere between $8 million and $20 million in checks every week. Earth Class Mail customers deposit over 60% of the checks our system detects using the check deposit feature. We know how important it is for our customers to cash checks as quickly as possible, so we decided to invest in making it even easier for customers to deposit checks from their mobile devices.
