I have some questions about Digital Checks
Please see our Digital Checks FAQs page.
It is important for you to provide us validated information to send out ACH payments, including payee name, account type, routing number, account number, and payment amount. In some cases, the receiving bank may reject payments based on a mismatch between account information and payee name but this should not be counted on.
We geocode what we get on addresses so in some rare cases errors may get through, if they are not autocorrected or put in the payments repair queue. We’ve tried to make things as resilient as possible while being as flexible as possible and still trying to maintain quality control, so it’s a balancing act.
