Virtual Endorsement

Tired of stamping the back of checks you deposit every day using your Direct Merchant scanner? We can virtually endorse checks so you don’t have to. The endorsement will be added to the image of the check when it is scanned, reducing time and money spent on endorsement stamps. Virtual endorsement also reduces the risk of returned checks due to a missing endorsement.
