Using a check scanner, you simply scan an image of both sides of the check. This image then becomes the legal equivalent of the original check, and the image is submitted to Adirondack Bank through a secure electronic server. Adirondack Bank treats this image as the legal equivalent and begins processing the check immediately.
Also known as an IRD (Image Replacement Document), it is a paper reproduction of the original paper check and is legally binding as a legal proof of payment.
- An image of the front and back of the check.
- MICR line of the original check, which includes account and routing numbers.

Each scanner will have minimum system requirements and will vary with each scanner. Each scanner will come with a driver that will need to be loaded along with a USB connection.

Yes. Deposits can be made to any number of accounts without additional charges.
Many retailers use a POP or POS system that produces an ACH (Automated Clearing House) debit from their clients’ account. This information is usually captured at the point-of-purchase and the checks are truncated. This means that an image of the check is not captured and therefore cannot be returned in the customer’s financial institution statement. Some users of POP or POS systems are moving to eDeposit to reduce equipment, maintenance, and training costs.
U.S. dollar checks drawn on U.S. financial institutions with valid routing and transit numbers are accepted, including personal checks and business checks. We cannot accept third-party checks, foreign checks, or money orders.
As an integral part of your online account access, the same security that protects other transactions also ensures that your eDeposit information remains confidential:
- We use SSL Technology to transmit and receive information across the Internet. This technology encrypts (scrambles) information so it is virtually impossible for anyone to read it.
- If you forget to logout or are inactive for more than fifteen minutes, your session will automatically be closed.
- We maintain numerous additional physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to help prevent unauthorized access to your information.
- We continually update and test our technology to improve these protections and to ensure the integrity of your information.
In addition, users access rights, depository restrictions, and review criteria levels are created within the administrative controls.
