OrderMyChecks.com review: Order options

With OrderMyChecks.com, the aim is to get you to do everything online. While the website looks a little dated, you can order personal checks in single and carbon duplicates. There's an extra cost for duplicates, but it saves you time because you do not have to write down the details of a transaction every time you write a check; the information is recorded on the duplicate copy as you go. When ordering custom checks, the company offers value packs that include matching accessories, and you can get a matching checkbook cover and mailing labels at a discounted price.

OrderMyChecks.com also offers business checks and supplies. Business wallet checks have seven design options that correspond with the type of business you operate - so realtors can order checks with a real estate design. Additionally, you can order business computer checks to pay your bills and employees. These checks are compatible with Quicken, QuickBooks, Microsoft and Peachtree accounting programs.

OrderMyChecks.com review: Security

The checks available from OrderMyChecks.com come with the same safety features that you'll see on checks from your bank. When you order checks online, you get security specifications recommended by the Check Payment Systems Association (CPSA). The CPSA is an agency that establishes security standards for members of the check- printing industry.

In order to meet CPSA requirements, three security features that guard against alteration must be present. These security measures involve the use of special paper, inks and intricate design elements that are hard to copy. If checks meet CPSA guidelines, you'll notice a padlock icon displayed on the front of each check.

OrderMyChecks.com review: Service

This online check ordering service has a toll-free number and live chat service. However, you get the impression they really want you to do it all online. The FAQ section is well stocked, but if you want to speak with a chat representative, you have to enter your bank routing number and account number first. Additionally, when you speak with an agent by telephone, you cannot get prices, style availability or customization options unless you disclose your private banking information.

Should you use OrderMyChecks.com?

OrderMyChecks.com is a offers personal and business checks with all the safety features and tools that you would expect. There's value in the packs that include matching accessories too, and there's answers to questions if you're willing to look online. However, try to phone, and you'll be asked a number of personal questions yourself before you get to ask yours.
