What is Check22?
In 2003, the U.S. Congress enacted a federal law called "Check 21" that allows the recipient of a paper check to create a digital version of the original check. This digital electronic format is called a "substitute check". Check22 is the next step. We've changed the process from a "Debit" (grab) transaction to a "Push" transaction where the payer decides when and how much they wish to pay.
You Can Send a Check22 Payment:
You can send your own Check22 payments in just moments - drawn against your own checking account - to anyone you want, whenever you want.
