The Best Ways to Accept Payments in 2021

on Thu, May 06, 2021 @ 10:45 AM By | Travis Powers | 0 Comments | Multiple Check Remote Deposit Capture (RDC)
As a business owner in today’s COVID-19 business space, deciding the best ways to accept payments in 2021 is a critical decision that has prompted a few questions. Are your current payment options safe and convenient for customers? As businesses open back up, are customers returning to their old payment habits or moving on to new ones? Forcing customers to change is never a good idea, but giving them options is always a great idea. Do customers want to pay right now or pay with terms? Is the option they are looking for cash, check, debit, credit, or even bitcoin? Searching for the right solution with all the variables experienced in 2020 can be daunting for any business, no matter the size. Furthermore, there was a shift to contactless payments in 2021 and those changes are here to stay. When looking at payment options and solutions, finding the right combination is key.

on Wed, Nov 06, 2019 @ 10:44 AM By | Brandes Elitch | 1 Comment | Auto Dealerships Remote Deposit Capture (RDC)
Here at CrossCheck, we have been “all eyes and ears” in recent years over news about electric cars because our primary customer base is new car dealerships. Since we maintain an active dialogue with dealerships, we are well aware that CrossCheck and dealerships are fielding a lot questions about how we see the future of electric vehicles (EVs). Consequently, we thought it would be helpful to share a few opinions about how EVs will unfold over the next few years. First, we pay close attention to the developments in this space, which is obviously critical to our business. Second, we want to “think like a customer” – our dealer merchants – and the dealers want to think like their customers – the car-buying consumers.

Developments in Check Processing and Remote Deposit Capture

The September 11, 2001 attack on the World Trade Center in New York’s financial district changed the nation in many ways. The emotional scars still linger, the rebuilding of physical structures continues today, and Congress reformed the way the banking industry handles check processing. During the second half of the 20th Century, paper checks were flown between US depository financial institutions on a nightly basis. That approach reached crisis on 9/11. For security reasons, all non-military aircraft were grounded for two days following the hijackings and check processing was temporarily halted in conjunction with air travel. In 2003, Congress passed the Check Clearing for the 21st Century Act (Check 21) to abate future disruptions, opening the door for banks and other institutions to process checks electronically. The law enables recipients of paper checks to create scanned digital versions, eliminating the need to handle paper checks. When Check 21 took effect October 2004, a function known as remote deposit capture (RDC) was introduced to facilitate the acceptance of those scanned images as deposits.

Americans write a check to pay for one out of every five purchases of $100 or more, and over the course of the recession, the value of an average check ballooned to $1,420.50 while one in five people said they increased their use of checks. Why are checks gaining traction now, right in the midst of a revolution in digital payments? First, because a handwritten check is an exceedingly secure form of payment, and second, because checks have the highest rating for bookkeeping accuracy, an aspect of check-writing that appeals to fiscally conservative consumers whose ranks grew dramatically during the recession.
