Automated check processing
PayMaker uses a third-party vendor to print and mail checks. We use the same mail service that AT&T does to print and stuff their monthly bills. This third-party vendor receives a check file from PayMaker on a daily basis. They print the checks, using an automated, barcoded process to place the checks individually into window envelopes. Checks are also periodically inspected manually to ensure an accurate print process.
The entire check printing process is housed in a secure facility, and the process, as well as the bonded employees, are monitored with video cameras. PayMaker Payment Operations receives daily confirmations that files have processed and all files and file receipts are transmitted securely.
Envelopes are injected directly into the first class postal mail stream via main postal hubs in Logan, Utah, and Dallas, Texas, to ensure the fastest possible delivery to vendors being paid.
