Don’t make the mistake of thinking that checks are completely outdated and you don’t need to worry about providing that as a payment options these days. Not having the ability to accept checks could cost you money and the goal of any business is to make money, not lose it.
Many people still use checks, particularly older people, and you could be making a huge mistake by not having the ability to accept checks. Don’t limit your business, or your customers, by forgetting about checks. If you’re concerned about bad checks, you can always run your checks online before accepting it as payment. Long gone are the days that you had to simply hope the check clears.
If you have an online business, you will want the ability to accept checks online for the same reasons. Providing options always increases your bottom line. You never want to lose a customer to a competitor because you couldn’t accommodate their preferred payment method. Some people are afraid to give enter their credit card information online (even if it’s secure) and look for the option to pay by check; if they don’t find it, they may very well abandon their shopping cart and look elsewhere. You can reduce the risk of losing these transactions by providing a variety of payment options, including checks, so that your customers can use the method they have or are most comfortable with.
