1. What is the reason I would want to order my checks online?
The primary reasons our customers order checks online is because of price, selection and convenience.  Our prices are usually about 50% less than bank prices. Depending on what product, quantity and how soon you need your checks - you can sometimes expect to save even more! In addition, we have many more selections than the banks offer. Browse through numerous categories and literally thousands of designs. Once you find a design, you can place your order with us anytime. You are not restricted to banking hours or waiting on hold to speak with a representative. Ordering online is saves you money, offers a larger selection and is convenient, safe and easy!

2. What is the process for placing an online check order?
Shop for a check design that you like... we have thousands of products to select from!  When you click on your favorite design, or click on the Order Now button you will be taken to a secure SSL encrypted page with detailed instructions on how to place an order. You can tell it is a secure page because instead of the URL showing the address starting with http:// it will start with https://   The "S" tells you it is encrypted and secure. The process is simple and instructions are very clear.  You will need to have a current bank check with you (not a deposit slip as many of these have different numbers than checks).  You will then enter the information found on your check to place your order.  Be sure to double check the information that you enter to make sure it is accurate and typed correctly into the online form.  It is usually not possible to make changes once your order is placed.  If you are not familiar with the various numbers on your check, we have a graphic below that shows where the Bank Routing Number, Account Number and Check Number is located.

3. What Are The Numbers On The Bottom Of My Checks?


  • The Routing Number is located on your check as indicated by the blue color on the sample check.

  • The Account Number is located on your check as indicated by the pink color on the sample check.

  • You will tell the manufacturer what check number to start you new checks with.

  • If you want to change something on your order, you will need to contact the check manufacturer directly. Look below for the number to the manufacturer of your check design.

    4. Is it possible to get Coupon Codes or Discounts on this and future orders?
    Our VIP Preferred Customer Discount Club is free to join, and guarantees that you will have access to the best prices available on all your future check purchases! We periodically email our VIP customers promotions and discounts to use on their check reorders.  It is free to become a member.  Simply opt into our VIP Club and you will be sent a discount code immediately for your current purchase, and will then be sent discounts codes to use on future purchases several times a year. You will be asked if you have a coupon code during the checkout process.  Simply enter the code during the checkout process for the discount to be applied to your order.  It is EASY!

    5. What are the payment options?
    We accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express and Discover for orders placed through our online ordering system. We will authorize your card for the purchase amount but will not charge your credit card account, until your order ships.

    6. Does this site send out an order confirmation?
    Yes. You will see the order confirmation page immediately upon completion of your order.  In addition, you will receive an email confirmation of your order shortly after it is placed.  If you do not receive your emailed confirmation, it is a good idea to give us a call so we can make sure that we have the correct email address on file for you. Our toll free number is: 1-866-376-4961 or email us at: sales@bankchecksplus.com

    7. What do if I am having technical difficulties or issues placing my order online?
    If your browser is a version older than Internet Explorer 5.0, this is most likely the problem. The best solution is to upgrade your browser because you'll experience better performance with all the sites you visit.  We would appreciate any feedback you might have concerning problems you encountered with our website.  Please email us at: sales@bankchecksplus.com

    8. When can I expect to receive my order?
    How soon you will receive your order depends on which product as well as which freight option was selected. Bulk mail is MUCH slower.  
    Check Shipping Method: From Date Order is Placed From Date Order is Shipped
    Bulk Mail to Continental U.S.: 3-4 weeks 15-25 business days
    Bulk Mail to AK, HI, VI, PR: 5-6 weeks 17-27 business days
    Priority Mail to Continental U.S.: 7-12 business days 7-12 business days
    Priority Mail to AK, HI, VI, PR: 7-14 business days 7-14 business days

    9. What happens if I haven't received my entire order?
    In MANY cases, if you order multiple items, we will ship the items individually and each item will arrive at different time.  We suggest allowing a few days for everything to arrive before contacting us about your order.

    10. What are the built in security and fraud protection features?
    We have built in security features that meet or exceed the requirements of the United States Banking standards.  The security features vary depending on the check design that you select.  We have slightly different security and fraud protections on individual checks, but every single one of our checks exceed the requirements set by the United States Banking Standards.

    11. Is it safe to order checks online?
    Ordering your checks with us is as safe as ordering from your bank. Your bank does not print their checks. In fact, they contract with a large national printer who will print your checks and then mail the order to you. With both methods, your checks are sent to you through the mail.

    The security measures employed by bankchecksplus.com are state-of-the-art. To maintain the integrity of information exchanged through the online order systems, we use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. SSL encrypts your order so it can not be decoded by anyone else. Think of how often you have left the check on a restaurant's table. Many times your name, credit card number and expiration date are in plain view. When ordering checks online, you can rest assured the information you transmit is seen only by the check manufacturer.

    12. Do people experience issues in using checks that are not purchased through their bank?
    No. Actually, your bank does not produce the checks it sells you. Banks take orders and forward them to check printers. The printer produces the checks and then sends them to the account holder.   Bankchecksplus.com and anyone who prints financial products must adhere to very strict specifications. The difference is, when you order from bankchecksplus.com, you get a much larger selection for a lot less money.

    13. Can banks refuse to use these checks?
    Your bank wants you to order checks from them so that they can make a profit on your purchase.  Banks cannot refuse to process your checks regardless of where you buy them. All online manufacturers must adhere to the same specifications as printers who produce checks directly for banks. Our checks meet or exceed all requirements of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and will be accepted by any US Banking Institution.  We guarantee it - 100%!

    14. What is your privacy statement?  Do you share my name or information online?
    BankChecksPlus.com does not sell, lend, lease or otherwise release information about our customers or their account or credit card information.
