working on a job assignment, need your expert help on Remote Check Deposit Service
Hi Guys,

I applied for a startup that deals with P2P transfers sort of like Venmo/paypal... the assignement that I got asked how we can offer our app users remote check deposit service..... and they asked 2 questions:

1. Are you going to pursue any parternship or start from scratch?
2. Funds flow and  any required licenses?

After doing a little research.. the only way to do this from scratch is to acquire a banking license and do everything in house which would take years and really expensive (unless you buy out a bank)

So reasonable option is to partner with a RCD vendor that will provide you with the RCD technology..... and you will also need to setup a corporate bank account for the check to clear as well... correct? 

My question to all you experts is...

Are there any RCD vendors or 3rd party payment providers that also clear the checks? or ultimately its sent to a bank?

How do you see the flow of the funds? what am I missing here?
  1. Individual/Business receives a physical check
  2. Check is scanned using Remote Deposit Capture/API
  3. This image is then transmitted to a payment gateway portal
  4. A file is created (image-based deposit) and submitted electronically to a bank for deposit
  5. The bank receives  the file/image deposit  and posts it to  corporate account and assigns clearing date
Anyway, any other solutions would be great , thanks guys

The short answer is yes. You have the overall flow correct, but there are few missing steps. The startup will require an RDC processor that can process the check images to create Check21 images and data.  The Check21 images & data are delivered to the startup's depository bank via a cash image letter (or X9 file).

Most organizations work with a solution provider to do some portion of the process, and I would recommend that option in this case. All of the big providers (Fiserv, FIS, JHA, Deluxe, NCR) have some sort of solution available depending on geography and volume. This would include the capture SDK.

JHA/Ensenta has a complete solution that includes mobile capture, risk mitigation and movement of funds. This removes the need to acquire a MTL (money transmiter license) for each state you would operate in.

RE:Analyzed Savings or MMA accounts on RDC

Do you mean RDC into SAV or MMA Accounts?  A consumer could RDC into a SAV or MMA I beleive. But for commercial customers you cant by law in most places co-mingle security deposits with regular funds due to the required accounting of those funds.  It creates a terribly challenging acco...

Analyzed Savings or MMA accounts on RDC

What would be some reasons why a Financial Institution would prohibit (or allow) RDC on Analyzed SAV/MMA?
