11 Best apps for cashing checks (Android & iOS)

Cashing checks? Are you serious? I thought nobody in the 21st century uses them. As it turns out, however, checks are still used sometimes – it may be a tax refund or a birthday present. In any case, since you are here, it means you’ve got a check and you need to cash it!

The good news is that you don’t need to go to the bank in order to receive your money. If you want to be efficient, it is best to download one of the checks cashing apps from down below and spend the saved time for something more pleasurable. So, let’s just dive right into the apps!

Ingo Money

The most popular app in this category is Ingo Money. Ingo Money is a wonderful tool which is tried and used by many. With its help, you can cash any check you like – it can be a business check, a cash paycheck, or a personal check. You can get your money both in a debit card and in a PayPal account. What’s more, you can split the check and send one half of the money to one account and the other half to the other.

The app is quite intuitive. You don’t need to spend lots of time to figure out how it operates. First, you need to take two pictures of a check – from the front and from behind. Then, upload them and wait until the operation is approved. Once it is approved, you can enjoy having your money. Where the money goes is up to you! You make that decision before the whole check cashing process even starts. So, in short, choose where the money goes, make two pictures, wait until the check cashing is confirmed. No worries and no long lines!

The app requires a fee, but you can wait for 10 days in order to make it all free. The fee is not big but if it bothers you then you should definitely go for a free option or try some other app!

U.S. Bank

Maybe you don’t need a special separate cash checking app, after all? Your bank has probably got a mobile app that has several features apart from balance checking and money transactions. Cash checking may be one of them! This concerns large national banks (Chase Bank, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, U.S. Bank) – if your bank is not of this kind, then you’ll probably need to go for Ingo or something simpler. This is, for example, the U.S. Bank app and it is quite convenient.

All you need to do is to insert a deposit address, the amount of money you want in cash, and two images of your check. That is it! Financial operations might feel safer when done in an app that you have already got used to. If this is the case for you, then look for the needed feature in your bank’s app!
