“Great!” he said. I called my local printer to let him know I just emailed him a check and that he would have it in seconds in his email inbox. This was also the case with my cleaning lady and other folks I’ve paid via email. No one seems to mind getting their money faster! That seems to be a no-brainer.
One of my clients, VerifyValid created a service which enables the emailing of a check. These digital checks are just as legal, not to mention more safe, as the old fashioned paper checks. But instead of taking days to reach you, it takes just seconds.
Bringing awareness of VerifyValid to financial institutions and companies has been my number one goal. We’ve created power point presentations, marketing materials and product showcases in order to get the message out about how easy, and safe it is to email a check. We’ve explained the inner workings of the settlement and the benefits inside and out. But what resonates with me is that people just basically want their money and to have it faster is better. People don’t care how or why it works – just that it does.
I’ll be writing a series of blog posts about VerifyValid digital checks. Since I’m a payments gal, I’m one of those inquisitive types who needs to know the ‘how’ and ‘why’ behind the scenes, and I know there are more of you out there like me, especially in the financial institutions and corporate workplace. So, stay tuned for more info, but for now this journey has made one thing clear…there are few things in life that are a sure thing, and getting your money faster is one of them.
