Payments Tip: Understanding Remotely Created Checks
Includes a Live Event on 12/14/2018 at 12:00 PM (PST)
Remotely Created Checks are often viewed as the "ugly stepchild " of the check world, but they still fill an important and vital role in payment processing. To limit your liability associated with these items, it is important to understand your rights and responsibilities, both as a Paying Bank, or the Bank of First Deposit. This webinar will discuss these items in detail and walk you through the transaction from authorization through the return or adjustment process.
