CheckWriter is a stand alone payment system that works with any Windows computer. Using a laser or ink-jet printer, you create a draft of the customer's check, that can be deposited into any U.S. bank the same day, guaranteed. There are no associated transaction fees and no special bank account is required.

Authorization can be obtained by inbound or outbound telephone call, a fax of a check, an eMail order, or an order placed via an Internet form or shopping cart. With proper authorization, customers can be billed on a monthly recurring basis.  CheckWriter includes a free sample authorization form that can be adapted for use in any business.

CheckWriter software comes with a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee. If you are not delighted, give us a call within 30 days, then send back your software and we will refund your purchase price in full.

Drafts can be printed on Federal Reserve Board of Governors Regulation CC Security Bond Check Paper. Paper features include chemical alteration protection, erasure protection, 'original document' security screen, and an authentic watermark.

Drafts properly printed on this stock will be accepted by any bank in the United States. Federal Reserve Board of Governors Regulation CC Security Bond Check Paper is available at below retail prices to owners of CheckWriter™ software. 

Prices start at just $10 for 100 blanks, plus shipping. 
Larger quantity orders can bring the price below 5c per check.

You can use any laser or ink jet printer to print drafts, as long as it will accept 8 1⁄2 x 11’’ paper.  You cannot use a dot matrix printer.  No special ink or toner is required to print drafts.

Acceptance and Guarantee:
If printed properly, theses drafts can be deposited in to any United States bank, the same day, guaranteed.  They will typically take the same time to clear as a standard check, 1-3 days for an in-state check, and 2-5 days for an out of state check. 3 days is standard in most commercial banks. This will apply to drafts printed properly on the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, Regulation 'CC' stock only.  

Check acceptance is extremely low risk.  The typical bad check percentage is less than a typical credit card discount rate, around 1% for most industries. 

CheckWriter customers now enjoy Free Funds Verification using the RoutingTool link in the manual.  RoutingTool will provide the free funds verification phone number for all banks listed in the Federal Reserve's database.  Simply call the number listed to verify funds.
