  • Take the photo of the check in a well-lighted area
  • Keep your phone flat and steady above the check when taking your photo
  • Ensure the entire check image is in view and all four corners are visible
  • No shadows across the check
  • Verify that the check image is not blurry and the MICR line (numbers on the bottom of the check) is readable
