Most importantly, eChecks have the same legal framework like regular checks; hence, when merchants & consumers transact via eChecks, they can stay assured of staying protected.

eCheck Processing takes lesser time…

Paper checks involve a lengthy process of verification that adds up a negative against them. You need to run through the paper check via an electronic scanner in order to fetch the customer’s banking information and funds to be debited. In case of non-availability of scanner, you need to arrange for getting theCheck dropped in the nearest bank – that consumes significant amount of your valuable time. On the contrary, transactions via eChecks are swifter as these are straight away entered into payment process once a transaction is initiated. On completion and submission of the payment form, the automated process gets initiated.
