Remote Deposit Capture Frequently Asked Questions

Remote Deposit Capture offers your business the ability to capture the images and transaction information from checks accepted for payment and deliver this information electronically to First Exchange Bank as if the items had been physically received at a First Exchange Bank location.

Not only is this service easy to use, but it saves a business valuable time. You will no longer have to make trips to the bank or manually prepare deposits.

This service is ideal for businesses that primarily deposit checks as opposed to cash, such as professional offices, contractors, wholesalers, manufacturers, physicians, attorneys and so forth.

Using Internet-based technology, you submit checks for deposit using a PC and scanner located at your business. Each check scanned for deposit generates an electronic image that is transmitted to First Exchange Bank. The deposit will be credited at the end of the day. Funds will be available the next day.

Deposits made via firstLink Business Connection have a cutoff time for same day deposits of 4:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, Monday – Friday. Saturday deposits will roll over to Monday.
