An important update in check price

  • Updated

From October 3, 2022, there'll be a $1.50 fee from the 3rd check you send every month. This means the first 2 are free every month, and the fee will only apply for each check after that. 

 

Why do checks cost $1.50?

The fee covers printing, postage and handling. There is also an additional layer of security to sending checks with Melio - your bank details are never on the check, helping protect you from fraud and check forgery.

More about how Melio secures your checks

Melio takes every precaution to help keep your checks secure from issue date until they’re delivered to your vendor. 

  • Your info is secure - Your bank details are never on the check, helping protect you from fraud and check forgery. 
  • Continuous monitoring - You get updated when the checks are sent and deposited.
  • End-to-end handling - Melio prints and sends bounce-proof checks to your vendor, and can handle potential issues. Voiding checks is free.


New features to make this change smoother

1. Combine payments to the same vendor. This means one check can cover several bills from the same vendor. Plus, you save on check fees.

2. Cover your clients’ check fees. You can cover your clients’ check fees by using a separate payment method.

 

Important: Check fees are only collected once the checks are sent 

The fee on a check is only charged when that check is sent to your customer (after payment is deducted). At that stage, it’s not possible to issue a refund.
