At ZenBusiness, we understand how important it is to have multiple convenient payment methods. One way you can pay vendors is with traditional paper checks. While we don't issue paper checks ourselves, we've created a step-by-step guide on how to send checks to vendors, but before outlining the steps, there are a few important points to note:
Points to remember before writing checks
You're responsible for maintaining the necessary funds in your account to cover the check when the recipient goes to deposit it. If your check bounces, the recipient may be charged a fee. And if it happens multiple times, you may lose your ability to write checks.
Check writing limit is $10,000/check
You can also consider using alternative payment methods like ACH transfer, Wire transfer, and use of Debit card to make payments faster and more secure
