Is it Safe to Order Checks Through the Mail?


Ordering checks through the mail is just like ordering anything else through the mail: safe to do, especially if you request trackable shipping. However, some consumers are upset with certain check companies because they report bank account information to credit bureaus.

Why Order Via Mail

Checks ordered through the mail or online are usually substantially cheaper than those ordered from a bank, even though a bank may order its checks from the same company.

Protecting Your Security

Check manufacturers, such as Checks in the Mail, print checks on special paper, and take steps to prevent or identify photocopying of checks.

Additional Security

To ensure checks don’t get lost in the mail, consumers can pay extra for shipping that includes tracking.

Complaints About Use of Information are upset that Deluxe Financial Services reports bank account information it receives on check orders to banks and credit reporting agencies, resulting in some people being denied checking accounts. However, they do not claim it is unsafe to order checks through the mail.

Privacy Policy

If this is a concern, consumers should read the manufacturer’s online privacy policy, whether ordering by mail or online. For example, Deluxe’s policy says it is legal to report information to credit bureaus under the Fair Credit Reporting Act.
