Void a check that hasn’t been deposited

  • Updated

If you chose check as a delivery method, you may have received an email letting you know that it wasn’t deposited yet. You can contact your vendor to remind them to deposit the check. Alternatively, you can void it and get the funds back in your account.


Void a check that hasn’t been deposited 

When a check is not deposited, you get a reminder email 14 days after the check was sent to your vendor. 

On day 15, you can void the check and get your funds back in your account.

You can void the check in 2 ways:

Note: Resending the payment.

To resend the payment to the vendor, create the bill again or make a payment without a bill.


Void the check from the email you received

The email includes payment details like the vendor’s name, invoice number and amount. When clicking Get a refund, you’ll be directed to that payment in your Melio account to start the process.

Here’s what the reminder email looks like:
