What should I do if I can’t get my deposit accepted?
There are some items that may be difficult to capture for deposit. Our experience is that larger checks (payroll checks, cashier’s checks, business checks) tend to have more difficulty, because to capture the entire check you must be further away, and the MICR line at the bottom therefore becomes too small to read by our processor. It can sometimes take multiple attempts, trying different lighting or angles to finally submit successfully.
There is no limit to the number of attempts you can make to submit a deposit, but if you are still unable to deposit successfully, you will have to deposit in person, at an ATM, or send in the mail. We hope this is rare, but we cannot guarantee that every check will able to be recognized and captured by our processor.
