An eCheck is the electronic version or representation of a paper check.
- contain the same information as paper checks contain
- are based on the same rich legal framework as paper checks
- can be used in any and all remote transactions where paper checks are used today
- enhance the functions and features provided by bank checking accounts
- expand on the usefulness of paper checks by providing value-added information
How do eChecks work?
eChecks work the same way a check does.
- the check writer "writes" the eCheck using one of many types of electronic devices and "gives" the eCheck to the payee electronically.
- the payee "deposits" the Electronic Check, receives credit, and the payee's bank "clears" the eCheck to the paying bank.
- the paying bank validates the eCheck and then "charges" the check writer's account for the check.
How secure are eChecks?
eChecks are the most secure payments instrument or transaction ever designed or developed. echecks are designed to utilize state of the art security techniques of:
- public key cryptography
- digital signatures
- certificate authorities
- duplicate detection
eChecks further enhance banking practices with added security so that even breaking the cryptographic protections would not necessarily allow a fraudulent transaction to be paid.
