Starling Bank introduces mobile cheque deposits

Starling Bank has announced it is launching mobile cheque deposits for all its customers with UK personal, joint, sole trader or limited company business accounts.

The Starling mobile app, which works across iOS and Android, uses device cameras to capture an image of the cheque, and will ‘read’ the details to pay the money into an account, the bank revealed, describing the process as “simple, convenient and secure”.
 
The new service will work for all cheques of up to £500, and the digital bank added that customers could still have the option to use a free postal service to process any cheque or cheques over £500 by sending them in the post for free.

Starling noted that customers would need to have the latest version of the Starling Bank app in order to use cheque imaging.

Starling CEO and founder, Anne Boden, commented: “There is no better time to launch mobile cheque imaging than now as it enables customers to do even more from their smartphone, at home – and with thousands of cheques deposited with us every month we know that this will help our customers.”
