A new way for the auto industry to pay

by Bridget Aymar

Despite major advancements in the payment industry, there’s no perfect way for auto businesses such as dealerships, repair and body shops, and auto parts providers to make payments. ACH transactions are secure and fast, but require the recipient to supply their private banking information. Credit cards are everywhere, but the merchant pays big fees for the convenience. Checks are secure and easy, but can get lost or intercepted by fraudulent parties.

Deluxe, a trusted checks provider with more than a century of experience in the payments landscape, has developed a solution. eChecks are a secure, affordable, online payment product that allow businesses to instantly create and send a check to anyone with an email address. They work just like the paper checks you use now, but are sent by email.

They’re as secure as paper checks and more affordable than other instant payment options like ACH. Anyone with an email address and a printer can receive, print and cash an eCheck.

What the Heck is an eCheck?

Benefits of Deluxe eChecksWe hear that question a lot since launching eChecks in 2013, and thought it would be a perfect time to share what eChecks are and how they fit within the scope of other payment options.

In today’s digital business climate, the traditional check is still in use. Research shows that businesses issued more than 13.1 billion paper checks in a given year. This popularity can be attributed, in part, to the fact that checks still provide critical capabilities that many online payment systems can’t offer. However, conventional checks are not without their drawbacks, and the demand for a payment system that combines the qualities of a traditional check with the convenience of an online payment system has created a new form of checking perfect for today’s digital business climate – Deluxe eChecks.
