BankServ Powers PayPal Check Capture

BankServ has announced that its advanced mobile capture technology is the technology being used in the PayPal Mobile Check Capture feature in version 2.7 of the PayPal iPhone application recently released in the USA.

With Mobile Check Capture, PayPal iPhone users can take a photo of a check payable to the user and electronically transmit the check for processing with BankServ's technology. The funds are transferred into the user's PayPal account at no cost to the user. (See PayPal Deposits $100,000 in Checks via iPhone in the first 36 hours of its release, in Mashable/Mobile, which notes that "PayPal wasn’t first to introduce the mobile check capture feature — the online payment platform was preceded by brick-and-mortar Chase Bank’s Quick Deposit app.")

"It is a privilege to provide the underlying processing services for PayPal's Mobile Check Capture," said Danne Buchanan, head of Payment Solutions at BankServ. "This represents an opportunity to reach millions of customers and is a further proof point to our distributed capture strategy and the power of mobile technology."

"With PayPal Mobile Check Capture on the iPhone, there'll be no more checks lying around the house for months -- a user can transfer a check to his account as soon as he receives it by just snapping a photo," said Laura Chambers, PayPal's senior director of mobile. "BankServ was selected because their remote check processing experience is the best in the industry."
