How To Place an Online Order for Checks ? It is Easy as 1-2-3

If You Have an Existing Account and 5 Minutes, You Can Place Your Online Order that Easy!

Ordering checks online has become very popular for a number of reasons. The main reason for the majority of people is because they can choose a fun design that fits their personality that is not available at their local bank. An added benefit is that buying checks online is much cheaper than going through your financial institution and is just as easy.

If you've never ordered checks online, there is nothing to be fearful of in doing so. It is fast, safe and secure!

Tips for Ordering Checks Online

  • The first thing to do when you want to order checks online is to have either a blank check or deposit slip handy to reference your account number and routing number. If you can't get a hold of one of these, call your bank to obtain the account and routing number.
  • Secondly, visit a checks website and start searching for a design that fits what you are looking for. Everything is available from whimsical fun designs to traditional looks and everything in between. It's even possible to customize a check for your favorite sports team or cartoon character.
  • After you've located a design that you like, simply click on the "add to cart" or select button and continue through the checkout process. If you've ordered online in the past, this process is very much the same.
  • You'll need to provide the name and address of your bank, your account number and routing numbers, a check number to start from and your billing information. Most check businesses online accept credit cards, check/debit cards or checks.
  • The final step is to wait for verification from your bank. This is something that the check printing company normally does for you ? sometimes you'll need to provide them with an old check or deposit slip for verification.

That's it ? with the 5 steps mentioned above, your check order will be on its way. And, don't forget, if you're in a hurry, it is possible to get a "plant rush" order and have your checks within a few business days. If you are really in a bind, some banks provide temporary checks while you are waiting on your order. Read more at:
